Answer: Plants that are compatible to septic systems are shallow rooted, drought tolerant and sun loving. Trees and shrubs are not recommended because their roots seek the nutrients and moisture in the system and will soon cause problems. Native plants are good choices because they are adapted to the area, and grasses are highly recommended because they help wick water away. Here are some suggestions for planting in the bed: Ajuga (Carpet Bugle), Cotoneaster, Ground Ivy (Glechoma), Kinnickinick, Periwinkle, Soapwort, ornamental grasses or wildflower meadow mixes.
