CORPUS CHRISTI - The city is offering free soil testing to help residents find out how much fertilizer they need.
If residents use too much fertilizer it runs off into Corpus Christi Bay, causing increased algae growth, which leads to more pollution and waters unsafe for swimming or fishing.
This testing can also save you money. You may find out that your soil is fine and doesn't need fertilizer, causing you to save some cash.
To get the free kits you can go to Gill Nursery at Airline Road or South Alameda, or Turners Gardenland on S.P.I.D. Follow the directions given with the kit and drop off your soil sample at City Hall, the Water Utilities Building on Holly Road, or the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension building in Robstown.
