I dug a little too deep!

Now I know the bog will be about 16"

I plan to have a berm at the back with ground cover like creepy jenny, and hens and chicks covering it and help hide the rain barrels (two daisy chained).

I also found out that my works new building, will have commercial landscaper work with me to design a natural bog in the front of the building with local marginal plants. We are also going to do indoor plant design with eco friendly water supply and low maintenance. I get input on the design and I'm hoping to learn how to build my home bog from an expert.

Here are some pics of what I'm done so far, I plan to try to get most of the digging done before winter.

I will start a new thread for the commercial project at my work, once it gets started.
