A bog garden work well with water features helping to create a natural setting, but allowing you to grow a wider variety of plants and flowers. A bog garden is a type of marshy garden located in low-lying areas in a yard that are prone to be very wet. They are often located near a pond or contain an artificial pond. Bog gardens need very little care and are ideal for plants that require constantly wet ground. Since a bog garden does not need much care, it should be disturbed as little as possible. Placing this garden in a low traffic area is ideal. A path is often constructed around the garden so people can view the plant life without damaging it. Bog gardens need sunlight and cannot be placed near trees or where leaves are likely to fall. It is also important to ensure that the larger bog plants do not give too much shade to the smaller ones.
Available space and specific plants, as well as the amount of water present, are all factors that may alter the creation of the garden. These gardens can be almost any size, the smallest fitting into a large garden pot. Full size gardens may be over 5 square feet (1.5 m2). If a natural pool is not present, a bog pool is often constructed in the center of the garden, though it is not required. The beauty of bog garden is that it is created in a distinctively informal setting and looks really vibrant when cultivated correctly.
