Louisiana State Plumbing Code requires that a clean out must be installed where the main sewer line leaves the house. These clean outs often get covered up under a flower bed because it was installed at or below ground level. The location of these clean outs accounts for 50% of main sewer problems in Baton Rouge. And one of the common culprits in causing main sewer problems is roots.
You can find roots whenever there are plants or trees. If a fitting is not properly glued or assembled, moisture will seep out attracting roots. Mock Plumbing strongly recommends the use of a sch. 40 PVC pipe for main sewer lines. Installation of all sewer clean outs must be high enough not to get covered up by any landscaping.
