Free septic landscaping webinar, March 18th 10:30 AM


You have to have a septic field, but how do you make it a beautiful feature of your yard? How can you make it a native landscape supporting pollinators?

Join Clean Water Fund and the University of Maryland Extension on March 18th at 10:30 a.m. for a Saturday morning webinar about the existing information out there and our upcoming project to create two landscapes for drain fields in Howard County.

Whether it be a sand mound, drain field, or the maintenance access ports to a septic tank or BAT unit, homeowners often wish they could camouflage these to make their yards more aesthetically pleasing. This webinar will cover considerations, options, and specific plants and practices to use with an emphasis on low-impact, native choices.

Join us on Zoom for this free webinar to learn more!


This spring and summer,Clean Water Fund is working with the Chesapeake Bay Trust and Howard County government to create two example gardens of how septic system drain fields can be landscaped to support biodiversity, pollinators, and our local ecosystem.

Do you live in Howard County and have a septic system? Do you know someone who does? We are looking for two suitable locations for these projects. Fill out this survey and let us know if you are interested!
