    Looking to send in a few soil samples, but the one we usually use thru Lesco is pretty backed up.

    Any suggestions? Just looking for ammendments needed before seeding a few decent sized yards.

    We send any we have to the Ohio State extension service. They are not exactly "fast" at getting them back, but it is an option. Not sure of the address, but you can easily look it up online.

    Wow just realized that the question was asked in 2007, so my answer is probably just completely useless hahaha

    I was all ready to respond, also. Why did "ant" put this thread upppppp.

    Oh well, in case anyone needs an answer. CLC Labs in Westerville OH.
    Phone (614) 888-1663. Basic or very detailed testing available with quick turnaround and reasonable prices. Dr. Chuck Darrah, expert in charge.

    Try you Extension office, most have an agent in your county. Testing might be sent away depending on where you are. Lots of great FREE information though.

    We use Spectrum Analytics, 1-800-321-1562, located in Washington Court House, OH.

    Test results are usually posted on their website in 2 days after getting the sample. Good prices and can also do tissue samples.
