Soil Mineral Balancing

What is it?


Soil mineral balancing is a strategy of building soil mineral reserves while ensuring the optimum mineral availability.  It involves sending a sample of your soil for laboratory analysis to reveal the mineral composition and content.  This reveals if there’s something big or small holding your soil back from optimum fertility and your plants back from peak nutrition and flavour.

The raw data from a soil lab is in a technical format and to make use of the results you'll require the assistance of a soil analyst, like myself.  A soil analyst is someone who's trained to interpret the data and provide a detailed recommendation of what your soil needs and how to fast track improving it.  


Working with me, I provide a detailed prescription for the exact minerals your soil needs to achieve optimum fertility, and because it will be exactly what your soil needs, you'll see radical improvement in no time!

This is the art of Soil Mineral Balancing.

some soils have too much of certain types &

both scenarios can cause big problems!"

Simply put, you set yourself up for success


  • Grow food that tastes better 

  • Improve soil & crop health 

  • Unlock existing mineral reserves of your soil 

  • Less weeds and weeding

  • Minimise insect pest and disease issues

  • Faster growing, higher yields

  • Avoid wasting money on unnecessary fertilisers

How often?

One analysis and mineral prescription is accurate for one year.  The minerals I prescribe with these packages will suit any Organic certification system.  


The one year program involves repeat applications of the prescribed minerals to achieve the best results possible, in as short a time as possible.  The management recommendations will ensure the fastest transformation possible and you'll be enjoying better quality food, more flavour and more nutrition in next to no time!

What's the Process?

  1. Purchase a soil analysis package below.

  2. You'll instantly receive a laboratory submission form to accompany your soil sample.

  3. Upon notification of your purchase we'll email you a "How to Take a Soil Sample" Guide & accompanying short survey form (to help assist our recommendations).

  4. Post your sample and submission form to the lab.

  5. The lab send the results to you & us for our analysis.

  6. We'll interpret the results and email you the report (including management recommendations and the minerals you require)

  7. When ready, you book your 20 min soil strategy session to discuss the results and ask any Qs you may still have. 

  8. You delight in a garden that's growing all the better, with more nutritious & delicious food.
