YOUR SOIL

Imbalances arise from excesses

Plants, like people, require a balanced diet of appropriate amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, fats and water.

Plants take up most of their nutrients from the soil solution (dissolved in water). Chemically, nutrients in solution are ions with a positive or negative charge. The balance of these charges determine which nutrients are taken up by the plant. 

An excess of one nutrient can antagonise the uptake or function of others.

As your doctor would order a blood test to determine whether you have a vitamin deficiency, a comprehensive soil test is the only way to determine the nutrients in your soil and their availability to your plants. 


WHY A SOIL DOCTOR?  

Misguided fertilising results in nutrient leaching into groundwater and waterways.

Choosing the correct products is not possible without a soil test.

Traditional lab testing is expensive and confusing.

Hundreds of tonnes of nutrients leach into our river systems each year as a result of the over fertilisation of residential gardens.

Product manufacturers encourage excessive use to increase sales without considering the specific needs of your garden or the environmental impact of applications to the wrong soil types.

Even organic fertilisers such as compost, need to be applied in the correct quantities. 

Excessive compost can 'lock-out' other trace elements.
Precisely managing your soil and plant intake of nutrients:
  • minimises leaching
  • produces strong resilient growth
  • reduces the need for herbicides and pesticides
  • reduces water use by improving the soil's water holding capacity
  • improves microbial diversity
  • saves money...applying only what you need in the quantities required.
