Beside this, what can I use to cover my septic tank?

Lawn ornaments such as statues, birdbaths, and potted plants can all cover your septic tank lid properly while improving the overall look of your property.

Likewise, does a septic tank need to be covered? Like wells, septic systems have problems if they are not sealed from outside surface water. A septic tank stores the solids from drains and needs to be pumped out about every two years, so it's not a good idea to cover the area -- you need to always be sure where to find the tank.

Also know, can I cover my septic tank lid with dirt?

However, a pipe or lid in the middle of a lawn may seem unsightly to some homeowners. A common solution to this problem is to situate the lid of the riser a few inches below the surface of the lawn. This way, grass and a thin layer of soil or another landscaping surface can cover the lid.

Do septic tank lids need to be buried?

In most cases, all components of the septic tank including the lid are buried between 4 inches and 4 feet underground. Unless the septic tank has special risers that position the lid at ground level, you'll have to dig for it.
