    There are several good YouTube videos on the subject. I had watched a few when my daughter and I were searching for farmland. We decided to look for a place with well and septic established.We are in Florida. Blessings to you and your endeavors.

    Do you have a shallow enough aquifer for a sand point? We are talking about driving a sandpoint well for watering the garden.
