I was told by a nursery guy in lahore that a solution of gypsum and water will do wonders for grass lawns.He referred to garrison golf club lawns which are lush green with thick turf which does not have a single weed.He says gypsum helps in conditioning the soil by leaching dowh salt residue which allows better response of the grass to fertilisers.Has any member tried this?.please share experience
This post has remained un answered for a year and a half,Perhaps because it was based on wrong assumption. Gypsum is not soluble in water, The beautiful lawns of LGG&CC are result of regular fertilisation, proper watering, regular mowing and regular manual weeding. Arif
Gypsum is moderately soluble in water (good enough to be used in soil) but it is very much unlike other common fertilizers which are extremely water soluble. I have never seen anyone using gypsum for lawns as yet in Pk.
