Is a vegetable garden ok over a septc drainfield?
I'm new here and new to gardening as well. I would like to have a veg garden ready for next spring. My backyard is unsuitable because of shade. My front yard is large and sunny BUT I live outside of city limits in Douglasville, so we have a septic tank with the drain field in the front yard. It's about 4 ft below the surface and runs right through the best area of the front yard. If I do this, I'd put in a raised garden anyway for aesthetic appeal and practicality. Is this workable or just a really bad idea? Thanks, Andy
