How do owners of large bog gardens feel about aerating the soil? I have read that aerating the soil will decrease decomposition and allow for aerobic processes to keep the roots and the soil healthier. There are two posible ways to set this up, as far as I am aware of. The first is the obvious one, use a large aquarium air pump with a hose hooked up at the bottom of the bog to pump air into the soil. The second one, the one i'm not too sure onthe effectivness, is to recirculate the water from the bottom of the bog to the top by using a water pump. Will any of these ideas benifit the plants to a large degree? Will the decreases in a stagnant bog also benifit the plants? What are some of the ideas and thoughts out there?
