We are building a new home and need all the information we can get about putting in a yard,starting with the soil. Do we need it tested before we plant anything? We're still building so we have time before starting the yard.

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

You can soil test the lawn after it is established if you like. The following web site provides information on growing a great lawn in Georgia:

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
