    I've got a strip of land between a sidewalk and the street that gets covered in the salty slush that the town snowplows push onto my yard every winter. I've owned this land for four years now and every spring I'm faced with the same deal; the grass is all dead and then I plant seed, have great grass all summer/fall, only to have it dead again when next spring rolls around.

    This area is in the front of a southern exposed house and gets great (intense) sun for most of the year. We've had almost 10 inches of rain this april, so I think that most of the salt is washed out of the soil. Our neighbor has the same problem and had sod put down one year. It died the next spring. She had the area hydroseeded. Looked great, then died the next year.

    Any suggestions from the pros on what the heck I can do to get some sustainable grass?
