Awesome, thanks a lot. I’m planning on something similar, bog filtration seems to be the way to go.Hi Crazyshot, I looked back in my photos and I didn’t take any of the bog construction. The bottom is 1/2 exterior ply, captured on 4 sides in a dado in the redwood sides. There are 3 redwood boards laying flat underneath to support the plywood.
If I were to do the bog over again, I’d make it deeper to give the plants more room to grow and give the water a longer path through the gravel. There is not enough room between the root ball of the plants and the diffuser tube so the water tends to flow in channels rather than percolating evenly through the gravel. It works OK but could be better.
