    I'm sure this has been asked before but I cant find it in a search. I am bidding the biggest walk complex I have ever done to date 8300 linear feet x 3 feet wide. I am trying to go by other properties that I have but would like any other opinion's as to how far a bag will go on a freshly shoveled walk? Not trying to melt down 2 inches of snow.
    TIA

    I'd think about 10-12' per lb at 3' wide, best bet is to measure a pound & go outside with a measuring tape, see how far a lb gets you with whatever your spreading it with & how much your using, then multiply by 50
