In this paper, soil collected from garden was cultured in thermostated incubator. Adding heavy metal elements to the soil and the effects of compound action of heavy metal lead (Pb), zinc (Zn) and cadmium (Cd) on soil enzymatic activities were studied. The results showed that single metal Pb and Cd can increase urease activity, but that of Zn inhibits its. Coexist Pb/Cd or coexist three metals in soil inhibited the urease activity, whereas coexist Pb/Zn and Zn/Cd promoted its. Single heavy metal Pb, Zn and Cd were all negative value, which indicated that single metal can inhibit catalase activity. Either coexist Pb/Cd, Pb/Zn or Zn/Cd in soil was increased the catalase activity, while coexist three metals in soil restraining its.
