Pacific Northwest Bog Garden

Pacific Northwest Bog Garden

With the “Oh lucky me” hardpan soil, I contracted the bulldozer to dig a hole 20 feet x 20 feet x 18 inches deep. I covered the hole with two layers of 4mm black plastic. Then, I filled the plastic with peat moss, clay, sand and left over rock form the construction site. IT WAS A MUCKY MESS…now it looks fine with all the primroses in bloom in the early spring. In addition to the plant list provided, I have added a few extra Cobra plants and Gunnera groundcover’s for fun. This is a full sunbog garden and I only have to add water several times in the summer.
