    I usually buy mine at HD, 5.49 for 40 lbs. bag of gypsum, 3.49 for lime 40 lbs.
    So then I get like 10 each or whatever, that's 800 pounds.

    Of course their locations in Kennesaw, Woodstock, Duluth, Vinings/Smyrna and Snellville Home Depot announced recently they will all close... So far I haven't found much cheaper, unless you're willing to check out agricultural supply stores like a feed 'n seed. There's an Agri-supply but it's in Tifton...

    Maybe try Lowe's.

    Soil conditioner for lawns, do a search, I tire of writing it all out :)

    Google's got some excellent resources as well, most everything has to do with the calcium, ph maintenance and, well, soil conditioning...

    I buy the Gypsum and Lime at the "feed and seed" type stores around Gainesville. For everything else I go to LESCO. There is a LESCO store in L'ville just off 316 somewhere. Maybe call them and they can point you in the right direction.
