How Is Your Soil Quality? Cumming, GA
Home Lawn and Landscaping Cumming GA

Now that Spring has officially launched, it is time to watch your landscape bloom. If you want to enjoy your garden to the fullest, however, you’ll need to spend some time checking your soil quality. Your plants and flowers thrive on water, oxygen, nutrients and sunlight. Considering that three of those four components fall under your soil’s responsibility, your soil is worth “digging into”.

If you suspect that your soil is below par, try taking steps to build the organic matter in your soil, which can improve your chances at a beautiful, healthy and long-lasting landscape this year.

Organic matter refers to a wide variety of living or dead plant and animal material, ranging from kitchen wastes and shredded leaves to well-rotted manure and compost. Ideally, your soil should be about 5 to 6 % organic matter. That may not seem like much, but it is crucial to the health of your soil. Building organic matter in your soil can provide the following benefits:

  • Reduces the risk of soil erosion
  • Stores water in the soil
  • Buffers the soil pH so it remains stable
  • Encourages growth of healthy soil microorganisms and earthworms

A great way to build organic matter in your soil is to compost. This is a win-win for your home and your yard. Composting is an excellent way to recycle kitchen waste and it provides amazing benefits to your soil. Compost materials fuel your soil with healthy microorganisms and also helps reduce plant disease and improve drainage. Contact a landscaping professional from Panonne’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping for the best compost material to use as well as other healthy soil improvement tips for your specific garden this year.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
