BuildASoil.com was based on the idea that every single gardener should have the best soil possible. We believe that having a very affordable soil test is imperative to creating a properly balanced soil when first starting. We subscribe to the time proven principles of mineral balancing passed down by Dr. William A. Albrecht. and couple that with the background knowledge that thousands of tests provide.
The BuildASoil.com services are based on results of professional laboratory analysis performed by Logan Labs, LLC of Lakeview, Ohio, which uses testing procedures designed for ecological farming and gardening based on research of Dr. William A. Albrecht, former Chairman of the Soils Department of the University of Missouri. We provide interpretations and recommendations geared to minerally-augmented organic methods developed at Black Lake Organic in Olympia Washington and as also taught by Michael Astera at SoilMinerals.com
