So What is Gypsum Used For?
Lawns: In spring and fall you can take advantage of seasonal moisture which will help push an application of gypsum into the soil for conditioning it. Use 10 lbs per 150 square feet.
Gardens: Mix well into soil before planting for increased production.
For Roses and Flowers: Spade 1/2 lb of gypsum around each plant and soak the area with water. Flowering plants and bushes prefer a more acid soil and by adding gypsum you are lowering the pH of the soil.
Trees & Shrubs: In the fall, apply a generous quantity of gypsum to the soil around the base of trees and shrubs to stimulate root growth. This also helps to control insects that hibernate in the soil over the winter.
Salt Damage: Winter de-icing salt is toxic to most plants and grasses when it accumulates to certain levels. Use 1/2 lb of gypsum per square foot to restore soil that has absorbed salt.
Your Soil Will Be Responsive to Gypsum if:
Water puddles in your yard or garden
There is excessive cracking of the soil after rain or irrigation
The soil contains large amounts of clay and is compact
