Building more productive soils naturally!
Gypsum interacts with water to reduce crusting. Gypsum loosens clay and compacted soil, improving the structure. Better soil aggregation and permeability will allow easier penetration of surface applied fertilizers. It provides a low cost remedy for acid, sodic, and erosion prone soils.
USA Gypsum is safe! It is not harmful to
Lawns: For a healthier, thicker, greener lawn. Apply before seeding or laying sod. Apply 3, 50 lb. (22.7 kg) bags per 1200 sq. ft. (111 sq. m.) and water thoroughly. Initial or follow up on established lawns, apply 2-3 bags per 1200 sq. ft. (111 sq. m.) spring and fall.
Gardens: Apply 20 lbs. (9 kg) per 100 sq. ft. (9.3 sq. m.) after tilling. Mix into soil and water thoroughly.
Trees & Shrubs: Apply 2-3 lbs. (1-1.4 kg) per tree and 1-2 lbs. (.5-1 kg) per shrub. When planting mix 2 lbs. (1 kg) per tree and one lb. (.5 kg) per shrub with backfill. Water thoroughly.
Roses: Apply 1/2 lb. (.25 kg) per bush and water thoroughly.
Salt Damage: Fertilizer burn and animal spots. Apply 50 lb. (22.7 kg) per 100 sq. ft. (9.3 Sq m.) for damaged areas.
Compost Additive: USA Gypsum aids in the composting process by reducing nitrogen losses. It ties up this nitrogen as ammonium sulfate, improves compost aeration, and enhances the microbial growth. Retaining nitrogen reduces unpleasant odors. Blend one lb. with each wheel barrow load.
