Leach Septic

Plant warmseason grasses that use more water and over-seed with cool-season grasses during the winter. Grasses remove a significant portion of the water from a system, and the grass cover must be maintained.

Trees also remove water and can be planted around the system perimeter. However, roots from trees planted too close to the soil treatment area can clog distribution pipes.

Drip fields on a slope must be designed and installed to prevent drain-back. Otherwise, the lowest part of the field gets overloaded.
