• Can landscape plantings and tree roots damage my septic system?
    Landscaping can obscure or cover your septic tank lids and make servicing more costly and difficult. It is your responsibility to keep your septic tank lids uncovered and accessible. Tree roots can grow into your system over time and damage components just as they can crack and or shift driveways, sidewalks and foundations. Tree roots growing toward your system should be cut and depending on the species of tree, it may be best to remove them.
