advice for bog garden abutting pond
Hi all. I'd like to put in a bog garden next to my pond. The pond is about 20'x10' (5000 gallons) and the bog would be about 7' long x3.5' wide. I've been reading about plant rafts in the Pond Basic 4 book and I'd like to put one in the bog. Though I haven't been able to find one online.
I'm not sure how to make the transition from the bog to the pond and make it look really nice (no liner showing). A pipe thru a bulkhead? Maybe a smaller section in the middle border (2'?) that is a few inches shorter than the rest so the water flows thru there, over flat rocks on top of the liner section into the pond.
I'm guessing I'll make the depth about 8" or so, maybe 4" into the ground and then 4" above ground (pond water level is a few inches below grade).
If you have a bog/pond combo photo I'd love to see it!
