Is calcium chloride safe for use near grassy areas and other vegetation?
Joe's Assistant

Under typical applications conditions, MELT Calcium Chloride Crystals will not damage grass or vegetation adjacent to a surface being deiced. As with fertilizer and any other deicer, it is possible for grass to be damaged if the chloride-based deicer is over-applied or large quantities are directly applied to the grass or vegetation. Roadside damage to conifers caused by contact with chloride-containing mist from high-speed tire action is a potential issue with highway applications of any chloride-based deicer.
