Weight of stone on septic?
Would love to use the grass area near the house and deck to install a stone patio, but the septic tank is in that area. Thought to do randomly placed field stone with ground cover; mosses, thymes, etc in between. So access to tank clean out would mean just lifting one stone. Tank is about 16 to 18 inches below ground level. If a pallet of stone weights about a ton, and covers a 10x10 foot area or 100 square feet, is that too much weight over a septic tank and lines to surrounding fields? Forgot what a basic septic tank measures, say 6 to 8 feet square...maybe bigger. That would be almost a ton of weight, is that ok? Or is that trouble down the line? Thanks for any ideas
