Killing grass over septic drain field
Hello. Would using newspapers/cardboard over a drain field be OK? Concern: that water will not reach septic drain field as required. Thanks so much! joanie

Can i inquire as to why you would want to do this.? For weed control it is perfectly fine. The surface water or rain does not need to infiltrate the drain field to work correctly, as there is plenty of water in the septic system from your home use to keep it functioning fine.
Using a septic system is new to me. I understood that air and rainwater were important to the drain field. Evidently, I misunderstood.
Thanks, VERY MUCH, Chrissy.
