Expert Response

Here is a link with a list of several labs that offer soil testing in the Portland area (scroll to the second page for the list).

Generally, the labs ask that you collect multiple soil samples from the area you wish to be tested, mix them all together, and then bring in a small portion of the mix. Once you choose the lab that is most convenient for you, call them to verify how to best collect your soil.

Best wishes!
