Broadus Exchange Roundabout Mound
newbie

I see that they are placing rocks around the mound with a different colored rock for what looks to be walk ways up to the top. On top they are placing Large rock structures with metal worked MC signs.

I find this makes that hill look like crap. I realize that they are trying to mitigate maintenance / grass mowing on the hill, but it would look a lot nicer to have a green turf (fake grass) and concrete walkways with the MC signs at the top and a lighted US / Montana / Miles City set of flags flying at the top.

Maybe the Miles City group that builds improvements might want to check into making it more presentable to the public.

Just my 2 cents for what it is worth.

It's called xeriscape and its awesome. After 15 years in the desert, I have come to think that grass lawns are a complete waste of resources and a source of nutrient and pesticide pollution. The notion you would not use that space to grow your own food is non-sequitur. Xeriscape should be used to replace grass if you are not going to use the area it to grow food.

I applaud the use of xeriscape in this situation. Artificial turf likely won't work in the roundabout location as the water form rain and snow would have to go someplace and it will create excessively slick and icy conditions in the roundabout. Most of the population of will have a enough difficulty learning to use a roundabout with dry pavement, let alone if it's icy.

Kudos to those who wisely chose to use environmentally friendly xeriscape!

Downvote for posting links to the evil Facebook.

No intelligent person should ever be on Facebook.

I think Gunnars mom is pretty intelligent. Don’t know why he would throw his own mother under the bus. Probably not what a “good Christian” would do.

I have told her many times over the years to quit Facebook. I guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

I thought about stealing the pic and I did not feel right posting it without consent and the info that the horse was going to the roundabout from the source not just from me.
Ps I love your, Mother, she is so sweet

We all love Gunnar's mother. We keep in touch through the EVIL site. I hope after the current fascist regime is defeated, the EVIL site can go back to cat memes and keeping in touch with distant relatives.
