Expert Response

Soil samples can be completed through the OSU Extension Office in Clermont County.  Take 15-20 random samples from over your area that you are wanting to test.  If more than one area to sample, keep seperate.  Put each test area samples in a bucket and mix thouroughly.  Bring in at least 1 cup worth of the mixture.  Each test will be $15 and includes pH, nutrients, and recommendations for your site.

Water can be tested with the Clermont Office of Environmental Quality, 513-732-7894. 

If you have any other questions feel free to contact me at the information below.
