The application rate varies depending on the type of soil of your pond. It can go anywhere from 2 lbs per square foot to more than 5 ponds per square foot, depending on how porous the soil i8s. For soils that have some percentage of clay content, using 2 lbs per square foot is usually enough. For silty soils, they are usually around 3 lbs per square foot. For sandy soils, about 4 lbs per square foot. For soils that are mostly composed of rock or gravel, you require at least 5 lbs per square foot.
