Please don’t plant trees and bushes over your drain field! We know they grow great and have an unlimited source of water, even when it is dry. Trees and bushes send their roots looking for water. If you plant on a drain field or even close by, the roots can cause all kinds of problems. Roots can block drains, crack pipes, jam up motors and make it all the way into your house. The damage can be substantial. Knowing where your drain field is and keeping the area clear of invasive plants will help your system work correctly longer.
