Your kit should have come with a white or yellow customer card card with it. The customer care card contains instructions on how to register your kit. Each kit comes with its unique ID which you will need throughout the process.
Once you have your sample and you are ready to register, you will go online to SoilKit.com and click the register button in the top, right hand corner. If you have not already created an account, you will now be asked to do so by providing an email and password. We request you create an account because when you receive your results, you can log in at any time and view your results. Those results never expire, so if you do yearly tests, you can always go back and see how your results changed from year to year.
Once you have created an account, you will be asked for your unique kit ID. This begins the registration process. Once the kit ID is verified, you are taken to a questionnaire. This gives you the opportunity to nickname your kit (In case you have several). You will also be asked to provide your name, phone number, and address. Once you type in your address, you will be able to use google maps to calculate the square footage of the area you are testing.
To use the google maps square footage calculator, you will find the area you are testing with the kit you are registering and outline the area. To do this, you will click the outer edges of the area to drop pins. When finished, click use this area and it will calculate your squire footage.
Once your square footage is calculated, it is now time to choose your testing options. You can choose from: lawn, garden, trees & shrubs, and wildlife plots. Some options may have subcategories to be able to choose exact plants you are testing. Lawn for example, has many types of lawn grass to choose from, but if you do not know your type, you can choose other. Once the questionnaire has been completed, you have registered your kit and now you can sit back, relax, and wait for your results to be sent via email and also though the account you created when registering your kit!
