I Heard gypsum is good for Bermuda grass, I have checked Home Depot but they don't carry it. Is gypsum really good for the bermuda grass and where can I buy a bag of it?

Applying gypsum to your soil is an excellent way to help loosen heavy clay soils. Gypsum improves soil porosity, which is the soil's ability to absorb nutrients. Gypsum will allow easier soil penetration for seedling grass and can be applied at a rate of up to 60 lbs. per 1,000 feet of lawn area. Gypsum is also called lime and is available in pelleted forms for easy application. You can find it in the garden department of your local Home Depot. Just ask for lime.
