I found Turface MVP at Northeast Nursery in Peabody MA. I used Perlite from Griffin Greenhouse Supplies in Tewksbury MA. I found the closest bagged mulch to pine fines and screened it for the pine fines.

I believe there are plenty of Agway's up that way. Just check their website. They will have the gran-i-grit, the gypsum (if you need it), most likely the bark fines. John Deer Landscape supply with have the Turface, and there are probably some of those up there as well...

Good luck.

Lowes is carrying bark mulch. The small particle size is perfect. Have a cheap 20 gal tub from walmart ready. With the wind at your back put the bag over your head and pour out the bark. The too small stuff blows away and you're left with just the right size particles.
