    Try NHicemelt in manch. There prices on salt delivered were pretty good last yr. As far as mix ratio. It really depends on what you are using it on. We usually mix 3-1 sand / salt.

    I know this is a couple years old but anyone know of any good places to buy bagged salt? I thought of NHicemelt but from what I hear it is really expensive. Anyone have any ideas? looking for a pallet of it

    The only bagged product NHIcemelt sells is Magic salt. So yes it is more money that straight bagged salt. You can also try Stateline irrigation for ice melt.

    Outdoor Maitinance Service sells bulk deicing materials out of the PRO landscape yard in Manchester, right off exit 6 on 293. Prices are kind of steep though, 135 a yard for straight salt. I go if I run out during a storm other wise I go up to Plourde sand and gravel in bow the day before to load up on straight salt. I have my own pile of mix at my house but OMS has sand and mix too.

    Thank you, I appreciate your response, Do you have an idea how much Plourde charges for straight sand or straight salt? Plourde isn't to far from me

    OMS is great, if there's icing or the potential for icing, you can bet theresca guy in the shack/loader. Another option is in Auburn, right by the Massabesic circle. Forget the name, I can get it for you if that's closer, and lastly right down the bypass in Derry DJ landscaping now stocks salt ( call first)
