Building a bog garden is a great way to conserve water and add another element to your garden. Gardens are usually made up of spaces or “rooms”. If your pond is one room, your bog garden can be adjoining to it, and look as if it is all one feature.
A bog garden is one of many kinds of rain gardens. They are shallow ponds, often with natural bottoms that are located in a low part of the yard. The shallow part of the pond that we call the bog is often used as a filtering system for the pond. The pond water naturally flows through the bog garden and makes your pond water clean and clear. The roots and stalks of the bog plants act as a natural filtration system. They add oxygen and remove ammonia, just as deeper-set pond plants do. Any plant material that water flows through makes the water cleaner.
