Where to get large rocks in this area?

Hi All-

Do you all know of any fish stores/landscape places that sell large inert/neutral rocks in the DC, VA, MD area?

I went to the local landscape places (Merrifield Garden) here in Northern Virginia and they only had limestone rocks and those would raise my pH in my tank.

Eh, we pay for the parks, it's not wrong to take a rock or two if we want. Doesn't matter what they think, so long as they don't catch you! Lol...
