    Check for bog in the title. There may be too many to list. Addy has an awesome thread about building a bog.

    Be sure you have the minimum # of letters in your search. I think you have to have 4 letters (?).

    I just typed in "bogs," and got like 10 pages of hits.

    Here is how I did mine... simple steps.

    1- Next to the pond I decided where the bog to pond waterfall will be and removed the stones.

    2- I dug 6 inches down in the shape of a rectangle, feel free to make a different shape. Make it 1/3 of the area of your pond.

    3- I bought bricks from lowes and lined them up around the dug area and I ran a line of industrial glue on them and then put more bricks till I had 3 layers...

    4- I bought a liner and an underline and covered the area then I placed bricks on the liner area cover my bricks surrounding the dug up area.

    5- I made a pvc pipe into branches to fit the area and connected it to a hose that is connected a small solid accepting pump in the pond.

    6- I filled the area with pea gravel 3/8" and put plants.

    tada!!! See addys post for details...
