How Soil Types Could Affect Your Yard

There are many different factors that could impact the success and health of the plants and trees in your yard. One of the primary factors, however, is the soil type you have in your yard as this can affect your plant choices and the vitality of certain types of plants.

Starting with an understanding of the soil type you have, we can help you make choices that make the most sense for your individual yard.

Soil type depends on factors that include the elevation of your property, your proximity to the coast, the amount of rainfall you get every year and more.
