Once we receive your application, we’ll send you a free soil test kit and your reporting sheet. Fill out the reporting sheet as you fertilize throughout the fall (according to the Livable Lawns guidelines) and once we receive it, we’ll send you a free $50 gift certificate for purchasing native plants at select local nurseries and garden centers. It’s that easy!
