The following calculator will give you a guideline of the yardage that you may need for your project. Simply measure the coverage area (in feet) that you are planning on treating, and determine the depth in inches.
Then input the data into the calculator and you will receive your yardage quantities. It may be necessary to incorporate several areas in the event your project is more complex to get a sum of the total yardage.
