I would appreciate any ideas – I haven’t really started garden planning yet, just a few ideas floating around, and since the bottom 5-6 metres are a softish bog I was hoping for a more natural water feature there (not fighting nature etc etc)
I haven’t seen it yet as we only discovered this today, but it is only a trickle. I am open minded – stream, pond, bog garden at bottom, using it as natural irrigation around the site……
I would appreciate help on where to go from here, so I can stop those pipes going in and do something long term.
To have natural water means that a garden pool can be dug out without using a liner, usually from an existing wet spot and you could have a pond with an associate bog garden, planted over time.
Definitely not for piping away because the wet area will be impossible to keep in lawn. Channel the water to the weet are and then away to the stream.
