    Flooding with water will leach the salt from the soil.

    This is going to be one of the biggest problems in the North East this year. It's going to show up on lawns and trees and shrubs all year long. Let your customers know now so you don't get blamed in the middle of the summer when stuff kicks the bucket as soon as it drys up:angry:

    Horticulture Gypsum will clean Exchange site of Na and everything else. Follow up in a week or so with a complete fertilizer.

    Just another prime example of why, other than the corrosion of the concrete, products like Tigermelt and the sort should be used on walks instead of salt. Save the salt for the parking lots.:rolleyes:
