Why hide it?

I thought this was going to be a "Tuck Dance" thread...

My septic main tank and sand mound pump tank have black corrugated pipe (24in) standing vertical to ground level and a concrete round laid over it and a thin layer of soil over that. My well head is visible as it sticks up about a foot I can see how a shrub or two could be used to hide that from view if one saw the need. I may end up bringing the grade up higher in that area to level it off and if I do I will do the same ––18 in of black corrugated culvert pipe or 12" PVC 18 in long with a flat circular paver laid over the end and some topsoil.

Well, I reckon if it ever does bother me I'm going to use one of those super magnum sized goose decoys.

Hmm, I have not thought of hiding it. I may have to look into that.

Hostas are great to hide the top of the well if it's less than 12-18" above the ground. Hostas come up early in the spring and last until mid-fall. We have the same weather as VT. They are also very shade tolerant.

What part of the septic system are you trying to hide? Mine's entirely underground. Do you have a vent or agitator?

I don't have a well but some folks around here do. I have seen little wooden wells used to cover well heads. Think classic wishing well with shed roof, and bucket on a rope a winch, only in miniature.

I think this is the route I am going to go. Maybe I could even disguise a gennie and pump inside it?

That's why you plant a garden, silly. That way they can eat your corn, beans, etc. instead of the hostas.

I have a permanent dent in my shin from my parents well head

Traditional septic tanks here with extended leach field. Everything is under ground, grass grows over it and it gets mowed. We have the tanks pumped out every few years, so I finally got some 12"diameter round concred stepping stones and placed over the cleanout plugs, I stacked several so that they are level with the grass to make that spot easy to find and not dig up the whole area finding the cleanout plug.

All my stuff is 100% underground.
