New Septic System -Cost and Looks

Our brand new septic system is in place. To me the hill looks a little steep toward the road and doesn't quite have that wow factor. Right now it's a bit of an eye soar, but perhaps once the grass grows in and I get creative with a few plants along the roadside it might become an asthetically pleasing hillside, well, it has too. The cost of this new septic system with a 1500 gallon tank is $30,0000 which was paid for by the previous owner. She had started the project before we bought the house and we were ecstatic that it was included in the purchase price and that we didn't have to deal with it. The downside, we now realize, was that we had no say in it. I had no clue that it would have such a visual impact. I pretty much assumed that it would be out of sight and nobody would even know that it was there. We have since seen other new septic systems in the area and they look just the same.
