Answer: Hi Mitchell,

I think this is a tricky one to answer without having site of the location. Are you permitted to have structures nearby? I would guess that it’s fine, as you won’t be growing anything with long tap roots that could get into conflict with the tank.

I also assume the leech field is safe in terms of what comes into it.

Kind regards
