New to bogs and have no clue!
I want to make a bog garden in our back yard. I do not have a pond, except a fountain pond from Lowe's. I do have an ancient satelite that I would like to use. Can I do that? Should I drill holes in it? What in the world are CP's?
I have a lot of clay a few inches down in the back yard. There is always standing water. I thougt that I would put the bog at the lowest part where the water floods from everyone else's yard so that I would not have to water often.
For my plants, I usually use soil that my husband has cleaned out of my horse pen. It is very fertile and already mixed with dirt. Can I use this?
What is the peat moss for? Fertilization or aeration? Forgive me if I mispelled that. I do not have money to put into this project, so I am trying to make use of what I have. I have a hose with holes to put at the bottom and plenty of compost and fertile soil. Any suggestions? I am all ears,or actually eyes! I am new and very ignorant to bogs so any advice will be appreciated!!!
