    How much area (sq. ft) will a 50# bag of Magic Salt cover? Trying to figure out how many bags I'll need.

    How Much

    It depends on a lot of things. depending on where your from and how your putting it down, and how much ice there is or if its just a little bit of snow. Do a search and you will come up with a lot of info on this. I'm not sure about Magic but most people say between 500-900 pounds of salt per acre. It just all depends on the factors. Good Luck.
