Hello everyone! Using bucky78's advice, I have created my own bog garden! Here are some pictures of the building process.
We started out by building the frame, and then evening out the bottom by placing tree stumps on the ground to get the desired depth of the bog, then we placed old spare pieces of wood on top of the stumps and an old tarp just for extra cushion.
Next, we put two layers of 4 mil thick plastic down and added a few inches of sand on the bottom.
After this, we put a layer of peat moss on top of the sand.
After adding the peat, we added a large load of sphagnum moss and sand.
We then mixed everything together and here is the final product!
Now all we have to do is clean the sides up a little bit and staple the tarp on and just wait for the rain so we can see how much more peat moss needs to be added!
I will be planting the plants in the springtime whenever the bog is established and I have hopefully collected more sarracenia, venus fly traps, and sundews to plant in it!
Let me know if you have any questions or comments!
