Looking to mask ours... to those who have dealt with this, what did you do? Do you have any pics? Would like to hide them as much as I can, but they obviously need to be accessible. Quite an eyesore they are! But I try not to complain too mom has a mound system....and right in her front yard! Yikes!

RE: What did you plant around your septic tanks?

Ours has several types of shrubs over it. We have two openings that the septic pump can easily reach.
There is a Smoke tree/shrub, Rhodies, Hydrangeas, Camellia, Barberry, some Daylilies and a couple smaller scrubs.
I had plans to reorganize the plants this spring but other things got priority!

Since it's next to the shop we at least have that as a background for the shrubs. Septic guy said what we have there is no problem as long as he can open the caps. Our leach field is 20-30 ft from the tanks.

Here is a link that might be useful: pic
