That's like asking a plumber, how often you should flush the toilet or use the kitchen sink for dishes...

I don't know what an L&O is ,,, so I can't really put together the meaning of your question...

I remember Soil Science being a big part of Botany at University and it was a 'Prerequisite' to Horticulture back then... I guess nowdays we monitor soils with gizmos, so we never need to touch, feel or see the texture and structures...

Anyways, my guess would be that all things being equal, the tech with a clue about horticulture would certainly be someone to hire...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
