    Yes, the Luster Leaf Rapitest Mini pH Tester 1815 can be used to test the soil in your lawn. You will remove 2" of the surface soil and break it up and crumble the soul underneath to a depth of 5". Remove any stones or organic debris. Thoroughly wet the soul with water (rain water is best) to mud consistency. You will use the cleaning pad that is supplied on the tester. Push the meter into the wet soil vertically 4"-5" in depth. Twist the probe between your fingers several times to ensure the wet soul is well distributed over the surface of the probe. The soil will either be in the green or red/orange zones. This will tell you the pH level of you soil.

    Q
    When reading PH on the Luster Leaf Rapitest Mini pH Tester 1815, what is the reading when needle is at the black line between 6 & 7? 6.5 or 7?
    I see that the PH values are located above the color scale bar between the black lines. Does this mean that each black vertical line is 4, 5, 6, 7, 8? For example, is the black line between 5 and 6 indicating a PH of 6 and then values between 6 and 7 between the lines (yellow)? My reading sits just slightly below the line between the 6 and 7. What is my actually reading? Approximately. Just below a PH of 6.5 or just below 7? Thanks for your help.
    A

    The Luster Leaf Rapitest Mini pH Tester 1815 does not provide an exact measurements if the reading falls between numbers.  If closer to the 7 that would be between 6.5 - 7, if it was closer to the 6 that would 6 - 6.5.
