Planting groundcover in soil damaged by Sandy

FritzlangAugust 20, 2014


Just pulled the weeds out of my front yard and I'm finally fixing my Sandy damaged home. The front yard is fairly sunny and the back is dappled in shade from the trees overhead. All sorts of weird weeds I never saw before came with Sandy and I assume there is still salt water in the soil. Can anyone please advice on Groundcover that is tolerant of these conditions?

How about using gypsum at a high rate? The calcium in gypsum replaces the sodium bonded to the soil.

Watering helps remove the sodium.
