    Does anyone off hand know if lesco offers soil testing. Not soil test kits, but actual testing on samples.

    Yes they do. You will need about 1 1/2 cups of soil. Takes a couple of weeks for results, and there are a variety of testing options.

    They send the sample to CLC labs. I think the lab is in OH.

    I use Logan Labs in Ohio. I just mail my samples out and get results back in about a week or two. If you need it faster they can sometimes turn it around in less than a week. This is a great test with a lot of info on it and easy to read. Check them out.
