Denver Area Soil and Sprinkler Testing


#1

I am in the Denver area and looking for a soil testing and sprinkler testing group. I found this place but my water is through Denver Water and it doesn’t look like the are participating. Does anyone know of something similar?

@chrismcdowell25 just to confirm, are you looking for a sprinkler audit?


#3

Yeah and to have the soil tested for composition.


#4

DM me your zip code and I’ll see if we can help you find someone.


#5

Did you find someone? In Arvada, CO and this would be a nice confirmation/check of my research & setup.


#6

I haven’t found anyone yet.

@Silent @chrismcdowell25 – I’ve put out a few feelers. Will let you both know once I hear back.

CSU Extension will do soil tests. See http://soiltestinglab.colostate.edu/documents/soilsample_horticulture.pdf.

They also do “lawn checks” which includes a diagnostic of your irrigation system. They do now, however, do actual measurements…it’s more of a visual inspection of your sprinklers as they run, along with your lawn problems. See http://lawncheck.colostate.edu/. I’m in Boulder County and they are very active with lawn checks. I don’t know if Denver County participates…try the “Ask an Expert” link at http://denver.extension.colostate.edu/programs/colorado-master-gardener/.
