Dear God . .. . HELP . . . disguise septic mound
We are under contract to buy a new house, great lot, wonderful back yard and house, *BUT* huge negative, about 1/3 of the center of the front yard is a huge septic mound. I really had to talk myself into getting over that little issue.
So, anyway, does anyone have any ideas for disguise? I've read that I can't plant deep roots, and I'm not even sure planting would do the trick (wouldn't that make the mound even higher/more noticeable??) I was thinking of a white picket fence around the entire front yard. But not sure if that would help. What about raising the entire front yard with retaining walls near the front door? Seems weird, too.
Does anyone have any ideas that have worked for disguising these ugly things???!!! Pictures would be wonderful. The house is a larger older ranch style house . . . with some brick . . . if that makes any difference.
