Description

Fugate intended to smooth spoils banks and sod bermudagrass for pasture, but gave up after spending $105.00 on dozer work and got only the one spoils bank leveled which is shown in photo. He sowed Korean lespedeza and is waiting for more weathering of shale before sodding Bermuda. What he has in spoils banks is mostly wasteland or Class VIII land of questionable value for wildlife."
