Native Flowers Beneficial to Septic Drain Field
Selecting the wrong types of vegetation to plant near a septic system can damage the septic pipes or clog up the soil in the drainfield. Choosing the right types of native grasses and wildflowers can actually be beneficial to the health of the septic system.
