Gravel for Septic System
Of all the things on your home's property, the septic tank is the one that you want to draw the least amount of attention to. In fact, the less attention it gets, the better it is because that means it is working correctly. Yet, having a septic system is necessary unless you are on a sewer system. If your property relies on a septic system, disguising the system is likely a priority. While there are different ways to do this, one of the easiest and most attractive ways is to use gravel and stone to create a pleasant façade that adds appeal to your landscape.
River gravel and stone are natural materials that can complement any landscape. Gravels come in a variety of colors, textures, shapes, and sizes. The versatility of natural materials allows you to complement your home easily. Add an attractive birdbath, and ta-da! You have an appealing visual in your yard that serves to hide your septic system and provide an added touch of beauty.
At Alliance Stone in North Georgia, we offer the following gravels to choose from:
Chattahoochee Pea Gravel
One of the most popular forms of pea gravel, its 5/8" size is perfect for creating pathways and accenting flowerbeds or landscape features.
A highly versatile gravel, it is typically ½" size and has an angular shape so that it stays securely in place once it is laid. It is attractive and compacts well.
Indian Pea Gravel
This gravel has an incredible amount of visual appeal because it provides plenty of color. This gravel adds dimension and is an excellent choice when a septic system needs to be camouflaged in a conspicuous location.
Medium Slate Chips
A bolder choice, medium slate chips can be as large as 1.5"-2.5". These chips have a very recognizable gray-toned appearance.
North Carolina Pea Gravel
Providing more color variety than plain pea gravel but not as much as Indian pea gravel, North Carolina pea gravel is often a "happy medium" for those who want color, just not too much of it.
If you have a septic tank that you need easy access to, yet you want to disguise its location, using gravel as a landscape accent is a great choice. Contact Alliance Stone today, or come by and see the options in person.
