Complete Soil Check- SESL have gone Retail!

At SESL Australia, we have been busy getting ready for a groundbreaking launch...

After years in the making and a lengthy trial and error process, SESL Australia are proud to announce they have hit the retail market!

Our SESL Australia Team at the launch of our new CSC testing kit.

SESL Founder Simon Leake noticed a gap in the market for comprehensive soil testing at a retail friendly price. If you're after anything more than a pH dip stick test, and want professional interpretation and recommendations to accompany testing, prices can easily jump straight into the $500 range.

Here at SESL Australia, meeting the clients wants and needs is something of upmost importance. We wanted to allow our clients the option to choose a cheaper alternative if desired. After working and brainstorming tirelessly on a solution to this, Complete Soil Check (CSC) was born.

CSC is a diagnostic testing kit that allows customers to improve and maintain their own DIY gardening projects. It employs the convenience of an at home test with the reliability and expertise of a professional laboratory and consulting company. Never before have home projects had access to such comprehensive testing and interpretation!

CSC follows an effortlessly simple process:

Scan the QR code & fill in your details.

  1. Pick an area to sample & collect.

  2. Place the soil in your sample pouch.

  3. Post off your sample & wait to receive your results in your email.


You can also purchase our Complete Soil Check kit from our Thornleigh Laboratory!
