Reasons to add Encap Fast Acting Gypsum to your lawn: The first purpose for gypsum is when it is used on soils with excessive amounts of salt (Na+). Too much sodium in the soil will damage good soil structure by displacing other elements needed by plants. Salt is probably most damaging on clay soils.

Applying gypsum to lawns will work to neutralize the sodium and slowly restores the proper soil structure. Once dislodged, the sodium leaches below the root zone and away from plants. It is an essential part of improving soils affected by salt. Other sources are runoff from winter road salt trucks and along coastal areas.

Gypsum doesn't take as long as limestone to break down and is more quickly dissolved so plants can use it. The third purpose for using gypsum is to reverse soil aluminum toxicity in soil. Aluminum is not an essential element for plant or animal life, even though aluminum is found in soil in large quantities.

In agricultural settings, gypsum has proven itself and can improve heavy clay structure, improve plant root depth, drainage, etc. Keep in mind that gypsum works differently in agricultural areas due to extensive and aggressive soil maintenance. The soil is often turned over to prepare for planting new crops, compared to lawns which are never turned once the lawn is established.

However, as is often believed, gypsum does little to soften hard soils in home landscapes. Home soils are not easily affected by gypsum due to soil layering, heavy compaction, high organic content, etc. Coarse soils can be damaged by applying gypsum. Magnesium deficiency from gypsum for lawn application can result in some situations. Gypsum will increase water filtration in saline soils, however. Salt prevents water absorption and blocks absorption into the roots. When the salt is removed by gypsum, the soil can again do its job in absorbing water and making it available to plant roots.
