Septic Field Mix


A great mix for planting over mounds and drain fields.  Several studies have shown that natives are the best option for growing over your septic field, and they do not obstruct septic pipes.  The roots take up nutrients from the wastewater below, and they do it better than turf! At the same time, they provide beauty to an area that is usually barren or boring.
