    You should look into buying it in bulk. if you get the bags for 4 dollars your gonna spend 110 dollars on it. Around here I can get 4 yards for 100 bucks.

    How thick are you laying it. I am coming up with 19 2 cu ft bags at 2 inches thick. So you need to know how thick of a coating your going to lay as well. If you go 3 inches I get 28 bags. Hope my math is correct. Goodluck.
