Create your own water feature in your yard in 4 simple steps. All you need is a kiddie pool, a shovel, and an awl or sharp knife.
Insider Tip: It’s ideal to construct your kiddie-pool bog in the fall, allowing it to settle over the winter, and make final adjustments or additions in the spring before planting. Any plants that love wet feet will thrive in your new bog, including cow parsnips, irises, creeping Jennie, and many more. To maintain the garden, all you need to do is ensure it stays wet. By midsummer you’ll have a beautiful new addition to your yard, and you won’t have lined the pockets of a landscape designer.
