Flower Garden For Disguising Septic Tank Cover
Now that spring has arrived and the flowers are starting to bloom, you may be tempted to invite friends over to show off how nice your Septic Tank Riser looks. Well, probably not unless you have taken the time Landscaping Your Septic System. As long as the Septic Tank Manhole Cover is easily accessible to your Septic Contractor, its okay to have fun with Designing A Flower Garden near the Septic Tank, Mound System and Drainfield areas. Plan on low maintenance, native plants that will add color and beauty to your yard. CSI Custom Septic Inc. would like to pass on some Landscape Ideas for Andover MN homes with an Onsite Sewage Disposal System.
Diagram On Site Sewage Disposal System
Do you know the location of every part of your septic tank system? Its important to understand how certain plants will affect things like a Raised Septic Mound or Underground Drainage Field. Even the Septic Tank could be damaged by intrusive root systems that bore down into the ground and penetrate cracks in Sewer Pipes or the septic tank itself.
Arrange to have a trained Septic Contractor from CSI Custom Septic, Inc. to come out and survey your yard to let you know the location of all areas of your Private Onsite Sewage Disposal System. One of our technicians can provide you with a detailed drawing for your records. This can also really come in handy when you are having any work done on your property.
Manhole Riser Covers
An easy way to hide the Riser or Manhole Cover of the septic tank is to purchase something designed to camouflage or hide the cover. Many outlets sell things that look like a large Landscape Rock. Adding a decorative Birdbath or Sundial or Lawn Statue can easily provide an attractive disguise for an otherwise unattractive riser.
Low Maintenance Native Flowers
When choosing Flowers to plant near or above septic components, Low-Maintenance is the key. It is imperative that the soil on top of the Septic Drain Field not become compacted from foot traffic. It needs to be able to absorb moisture in order to function properly.
Drought Resistant Native Plants
Your Septic System Landscaping should include Native Plants that can thrive with little attention or moisture. You never want to be adding large amounts of water to a Soil Absorption Area of your septic system. The less weeding done in this area the better in order to prevent Soil Erosion or Soil Compaction.
