What to do with that drain field and sand filter in the middle of your yard?! There are many creative design solutions for septic fields besides lawn. But what you don’t want to do is plant trees, shrubs, or any other deep rooted plants in the septic area that can damage the system. For this project, we suggested a wildflower meadow with an eco-grass pathway with recycled composite pavers. We also designed a small boardwalk that was installed over the green septic tank lids so they were no longer visible. The sections of boardwalk are actually designed to lift open to access the tank lids below.
