    I have been using a 50/50 mix of limestone crush and salt. It has been working awesome.

    New Englanders are tough to break from the sand thing. I still use it occassionally. They way I may the switch is to just do it. Use sand once, even in a small area just put one yard down at your own expense. Prove to them that it works and then it will be an easier sell.
