    How do you find out how much salt would be needed to treat a parking lot.
    for example a 100 by 100 parking lot.

    800 to 1000 lbs per acre - divide it out from there. The problem unfortunately is weather and ground conditions can up or or lower that number quite a bit so it's something you eventually just get a feel for.
