You may have to call your lowes and request, bug, stalk them to carry the premixed mix. I think it would take about 4 of them to fill a standard box?

Welcome to the group lobstergurl. I think Mel's Mix is available in the 2cf bags so you'd need 4 bags for a 4x4 box. I believe folks are calling Home Depot's and Lowes online help centers and requesting the mix be purchased for their area Distribution centers and then the stores can get it. You've got quite a group of folks in your regional forum that can help you find the individual ingredients if you want to make up your own mix also. Have fun!

I mixed my first batch alone...got a sore back that way so I enlisted the help of my kids for the second batch. We all took our shoes off and just walked around on the tarp dragging our feet. It was great fun with the kids and actually worked really well Smile
