Homeowners living in the country oftentimes do not have access to municipal septic systems.  This requires either holding tank style septic systems or septic systems featuring holding tanks and leach fields with vent pipes.

The problem many homeowners face is hiding the ugly concrete septic risers and white plastic vent pipes. These large, unattractive utilities do not blend in well with the landscaping and garden areas, oftentimes making front and back yard landscape areas much less desirable.

There are a few ways to hide a septic tank riser in your yard, such as:

  • Planting tall grass or bushes around the riser to camouflage it.
  • Building a small retaining wall around the riser and planting flowers or other vegetation on top.
  • Constructing a wooden or stone deck or patio over the riser.
  • Creating a raised garden bed around the riser and filling it with plants or flowers.

The main problem with these traditional methods of hiding septic tank risers and vent pipes is that they all tend to be labor intensive.

DekoRRa fake rock covers are ultra-durable and designed to withstand all types of weather.  The mock rocks are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors to fit any yard, garden or landscaping application.

It’s important to note that you should not bury the riser as it needs to be accessible for regular maintenance and inspections. Additionally, you should also consult with your local building department and septic professional to ensure that your chosen method of hiding the riser is compliant with regulations and won’t interfere with the proper functioning of your septic system.
