What bushes or trees can grow in the area on top of a septic field? Our yard is so barren looking on that side of the house.

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. I wouldn't recommend growing any trees over a septic field, but a lot of shrubs should be okay; most anything that stays in the 5-foot-tall range or smaller should be okay.

 

You might also consider perennials --- they'll typically spread faster than shrubs.
