    I was wondering how much one ton or bulk salt would cover on average for good results.

    There are many variables to consider.
    Temperature, sun or shade, how much snow are you trying to melt, volume of traffic and how fast you need it to work.

    For bidding an average for the above I would use 1,000 lbs/acre.
