    I have a .5 acre open lot I need to salt with Calc flakes. 50lb bags. I'm thinking 225$per application. It's a car wash so it can't be sand mix. I'm getting a pallet of 45 50lb bags of flakes for 600 deleivered

    It's a car wash and they don't want sand on the lot.

    I'm confused. If they are buying the ice melt, all you charge for is applying it. So figure your hourly rate times how much time you are on the property .
