Proper landscaping choices can protect you from damaging the investment you’ve made in your septic tank and drain field. This talk will address basic septic system and drain field maintenance; which plants, shrubs and ground covers are best and which to avoid; how drought-tolerant native plants can provide attractive alternatives to grass. Retired WSU Extension program coordinator Scott Chase has given talks in the past on planting for shoreline stability, wild mushrooms, and rain barrels.
