Vegetable Garden Near Septic Tank

Mitchell.t.hanson added on October 24, 2015 | Answered

I'm planning on putting raised garden beds 10 feet from my septic tank on the opposite side of the leech field. Should I have any concerns? It will be a vegetable garden.

Raised beds with garden vegetables should not be any issue at this distance from your septic system.

Only plants or trees with invasive and large root systems should be avoided in this area.
