Healthy soil - created within your budget - grows beautiful and bountiful vegetation

Depending upon soil condition, just one season of care can turn dead dirt into a community of living organisms (bacteria and fungi) that naturally feed your plants eliminating or reducing the need for expensive synthetic fertilizers

Slide 4

The first step is to have a Plan.

Different plants need different types of microbial communities. Before any course of action is implemented, a SoilKeepers Yard Improvement Plan to specify what types of plants the property owner wants in what locations is created for our customers at no cost.

Soil chemistry/biology and plant tissue evaluations can be helpful to understand and work with mother nature.

Because plants can thrive in a wide variety of soil types and nutrient levels if healthy communities of soil microbes exist, the Soil Biology portion of a soils test is very important.

SoilKeepers specializes in Healthy Soil Microbiology.

Soils in Virginia have all the nutrients they need for most types of plant growth. What is needed is a balanced community of bateria, fungi, and other microbes to feed these at the root zone.

Different types of plants need different ratios of bacteria to fungi.

Carbon amendments (nutrients bound in organic matter) are the most inexpensive method to maintain a beautiful yard, provide safe play areas for children and pets, while helping balance our air and water cycles.

(February, 2017) Hi, Just wanted to touch base with you about our lovely green lawn. Wondered what, if anything, we need to do to keep it healthy and green. Are you planning to come out and evaluate it again? We weren't quite sure what the next step is but for the moment, it looks better than it has looked in ages. Pam D.
