FREE SOIL SURVEY BOOK
When deciding to buy a farm, build a house, dig a pond or build a park it is important to know what you are building on or digging in. Our office can provide you with a copy of the county soil survey book. It provides a wealth of information that can be used in land planning. The book looks like a double-layered puzzle that includes an aerial photo covered with odd shaped soil labeled areas.
Some soils in the county are subject to flooding, shallow to bedrock or seasonally wet. Several soil types are very poor and sometimes impossible to build certain things on. The book provides general and detailed information on each of the soil characteristics. It also charts each soil type according to its ability for specific practices and uses.
If you or someone you know would like a copy,
