Will baking soda damage outdoor landscapes?

Baking soda is a wonderful eco-friendly product with a PH of 8.2, which can affect the landscape. This phenomenon is the same one that occurs on roads that are salted. You will notice the first foot or two of the grass is dead during the first few weeks of Spring, and then grows back with the rest of the grass. Any potential damage is easily preventable by pre-watering the ground before blasting begins and covering up any ornamental or special bushes and groundcover.
