I have recently moved into a new house where my yard was seeded w/straw. Rather then begin any maint or whatever on the lawn during the hot summer months I decided maybe I should wait til fall and begin then. But I'm getting many weeds, etc and am thinking of trying to begin something now. My first thought was to get a soil sample and have it tested but I have no idea where I can get that done in my area as I'm new to the area having moved here from out of state. Can someone help me with the following: 1) Where can I get a soil sample with recommendations on how to proceed to start/maintain my lawn? 2) Whether it's even worth it to start working on it now in the summer time? Thanks.
