To test your garden soil for arsenic, you need to take samples of soil from holes dug 8 to 10 inches deep. Take the sample from various locations and allow them to dry. After the samples have dried, put them in a plastic bag and send them to lab for testing. Visit http://www.ehow.com/how_5898850_manually-test-soil-arsenic.html for detailed instructions.
