Sump Pump pit

Posted by chr_22 5b (My Page) on

My backyard has a 2' X 3' pit that is bordered by landscape timber and is filled with large white stones. There is PVC pipe that drains into from the sump pump in the basement; this pipe is below ground. I've never seen this type of set up before and was wondering if I could make a bog garden around it or with it.
Any ideas?

Assuming it's just groundwater, you could take out the stones and timbers, line the pit with some clay, and create a small pond, and add some pond/bog loving plants. Could be really cool.
