Home Landscapes and Vegetable Gardening
Soil testing is the most effective way to determine the nutrient status and pH of the soil in a home landscape or vegetable garden. This should be the first step in landscaping and gardening to ensure you are providing the appropriate amounts of minerals for what you are trying to grow. Contact your local Extension Agent to find out more information about soil testing, or visit edis.ifas.ufl.edu.
Proper irrigation is key to growing a healthy landscape or garden. Too much or too little water can cause an extreme effect on your plants. Contact your local Extension Agent for information and to see what will work best for your landscape or garden.
