    be toxic to pets if ingested such as from licking paws or drinking out of salt laden puddles Sodium chloride only works to 15 20 degrees F so when the temperature is lower than that it won t be effective It is usually the least expensive and most readily available option but there are other commercially available de icing products Some products consist of salt with other materials mixed in to lower the melting temperature Other de icers include calcium chloride which is effective to 20 degrees F and acts very quickly but it is much more expensive highly corrosive readily leaches into ground water and damages plants Magnesium chloride works down to 10 F and releases 40 less chloride into the environment than rock salt or calcium chloride however it is also expensive and damaging to plants Potassium chloride which is used as a commercial fertilizer only works to 25 degrees F is relatively expensive and can damage plants but doesn t damage soil structure as much as other materials Urea a component in nitrogen fertilizers is often an ingredient in products labeled as pet friendly but it too can damage plants and ground surface water if over applied It is not as effective as other products especially at temperatures below 25 degrees F To avoid salt damage to plants and the environment always use as little de icing material as necessary for safety purposes Use it only where needed in high traffic areas and try to apply it before the ice bonds to the pavement for better effectiveness Use sand wood ashes such as from your fireplace or kitty litter to provide traction in all temperatures or mix these materials with a small amount of salt to get both melting and traction Try to keep salt from washing into storm sewers lakes or rivers Avoid shoveling salt laden snow into planting beds or lawns In areas where you expect salt to accumulate choose plants that have tolerance for higher salt levels You can also try flushing soil in salty areas in spring applying several inches of water to remove salt from plant root zones In areas with heavy clay soil that has become very salt laden and compacted application of gypsum can displace sodium ions and improve aeration and drainage Salt or other ice melting products can be an important tool to keep surfaces safe during winter However they all can damage surfaces as well as plants soil and the environment so they should be used appropriately and in moderation For more information see the UW Extension publication Winter Salt Injury and Salt Tolerant Landscape Plants http learningstore uwex edu Assets pdfs A3877 pdf or contact Diana Alfuth UW Extension Horticulture Educator at 715 273 6781 Sharing is Caring Click Below to Share Post navigation Previous Care for your Houseplants this Winter Lush green houseplants can help brighten our spirits on cold winter days Besides adding beauty and being an integral part of interior decoration houseplants help satisfy
