    Is there a type of grass seed that is more salt tolerant than others? My in laws yard was destroyed in a hurricane last year and is right next to the sound. Would gypsum help? He is having top soil brought in.

    Is he planning on Bermuda grass--or will a cool season grass be seeded?
    Moonbeam and Brightstar SLT should work OK.
    Take a look at the salt tolerant breeding program at this company Turf-seed. From Pure Seed Testing.

    Seashore paspalum is tolerant to effluent/brackish water, it is warm season but like zoysia in the north can be acclimated fairly well.
    It's not too coarse and is aesthetically uniform as a stand and the pigmentation ( color) is good.
