Rock Salt is mined Sodium Chloride that has been crushed and screened to comply with ASTM specifications for deicing salt. Particles are irregular, white to gray in color. Rock Salt can be used for control of snow and ice on paved and other solid surfaces. Rock Salt is not suitable for application on turf or around trees and shrubs. Rock Salt should not be applied to concrete aged less than two years. Works until 20 degrees Fahrenheit .
Available in bulk, 50#.
Pallet pricing available.
Sprinkle on ice or snow at a rate of 4-6 lbs. per 100 sq ft. Application rate will vary with the amount of ice or snow present on the ground. To help minimize the potential for surface damage on concrete surfaces, use only enough salt to melt the snow or loosen the ice, then promptly remove the slush that forms.

1. With a measuring tape, measure how many feet long the bed is. Then measure how many feet wide. Multiply these two figures. The total is the square foot area of that landscape bed.
2. Decide how thick you want your mulch to be (2” is average). For new landscape beds, 4” of mulch is recommended. If you are just top dressing a previously mulched bed, you may wish to use as little as 1” of mulch. Using the conversion chart below or Mulch Calculator to the right, you can figure how many cubic yards or bags of mulch, soil or gravel to order.
3. If you still have questions, please call our visit one of our stores. If you have the total area of your landscape beds calculated, we’d be glad to help you figure the amount of mulch, soil or gravel you will need.
