Are piled up leaves a problem for your Septic System?!

Septic Question:
 
Fallen leaves are beautiful. The crunchy sounds they make create a warm and fuzzy feeling inside of all of us! However, they impact whether or not your yard can grow grass…. Sorry, I got off track!
 
Are tons of leaves hanging out on your septic drain field problematic?
 
Well, they stop your soil from being able to function the way it’s supposed to and could cause drainage issues. So, it’s best to make sure you don’t have a TON of leaves just hanging out in this area of your yard.
 
So, get raking. And, of course, if you notice anything smelly or concerning, give us a call!!!

P.S. Robertson County has more rural areas so this especially applies to our neighbors on Septic Tanks in Greenbrier, TN or Springfield, TN, etc.
