This all depends on thickness and what you are rendering on such as stone, block or brick, plus how much wastage you have, I work on 30 square metres per bulk bag.
Hope this is of some help.

It all depends on the brick work for your scatch coat any bad brick work should be filled in or replaced and give it a good brush and wet it down with water before you aply upva a ton bag should cover 35s2 meters for the scratch coat and 42 for the top coat and a good spred will not have any wastage as it all go`s on the wall
