    1 to 2 depending on whether your laying in an open space area, or spreading around plants in crowded flower beds. It also depends on how far your walking.

    1-2 using 10 cu. ft. wheelbarrows (much less using 6 cu. ft.) depending on terrain, perennial coverage and distance walked

    My (3) man crew will put down 10-12 per hr. My bad, maybe this was a girl thread.

    I can do 2 yards per hour for the first 3 hours. Then I start to slow down a little. I did 6 yards in 2 hours 15 minutes by myself once, but I think that was a fluke luck sort of thing.
