They recommend being sure that you don't plant spring trees and shrubs too close to your sewer system. They say to find the layout of your sewer system and sewer lines first before you start planting anything so the plants' roots do not grow through the sewer system, which could lead to costly repairs. They recommend that you plant at least 10 feet away from the sewer system and lines to be on the safe side.
By taking these steps, residents can avoid expensive sewer system repair. Making sure you know where your sewer system and lines are is a very important first step to take before you start your spring planting and landscaping.
