We are building our dream home that requires installation of a septic system. The size of the block is just over an acre. We have a couple of spots on the bare block that I would like to plant something substantial that will be lush, green but more importantly, create privacy. I have some ficus topiary trees that have been in pots for over 15 years. Would these be detrimental to the septic system?
