The Q&A Archives: Septic Leach Lines

Question: How far away do you need to be from Septic Tank leach Lines to plant a garden.

Thank You

Answer: Doreen,

there is no specific distance from a leach line for planting a garden. There are many factors could soil type, slope, how well the leach line is working. If the garden is flowers and other ornamental plants you can plant up to the edge of the line.If the garden is vegetables I would stay about five to 10 feet away.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
