Who says coal ash has no use?

I found a use for it. Filled some holes and leveled an area of the yard by the deck. Then covered it with a shed, top soil and grass seed. Let's see if it grows.

I do the same every spring...grass grows fine on it with an inch of topsoil.

I've been debating on doing it for a while now. Its too bad the season is winding down. I've all but run out of ash. I've got quite a few holes to fill in my yard.

I don't have very many friends either in the community either. I'm OK with it however. I want to be known as, "The scary old guy who is constantly yelling at the squirrels to get off his lawn."
