    hello i am looking for an aproxamate sq foot coverage for a 50 lb bag od calcium. i have a bid on a place with 18,500 sq ft of walks. pricing is per bag but just trying to run some #. i saw somewhere online that coverage was 2-4 oz per sq yard. i thinks thats off. i know alot plays a factor in the rate. we will be using push spreaders. walks consist of concrete and pavers with a few 3-6 step stairs. any input will be great.

    thats way too little. you need more than that. im looking into spray liquid calcium with back pack sprayers. alot easier than loading spreader. i dont know the price. also it may be a pain refilling it.
