Planting Over a French Drain Pipe

I have had a flexible French pipe installed to drain my garden, it is fitted lengthwise along a 9 metre flower bed. What can I plant in the bed without damaging the pipe?

The pipe is in a trench covered in gravel then soil and also topsoil. Ideally I would like to plant a Portuguese laurel as hedging, but am concerned this may damage the pipe.

Has anyone encountered this problem and what advice can they give me?

Many thanks.

You would want something that would not have deep roots. If you have sandy soil over it, I would do a cactus or hen and chicken bed.
