This was the start of my bog building. I collected all the rock around here where they are doing construction, must have been about 6 or more truck loads, but they were all free. I dug down about 8" and built the wall up to get my desired height of about 18" total.

I was putting in the underlayment and liner. I bought a 60 mil liner for the bog since I was going to be putting in a ton of gravel didn't want anything poking a hole in it. Probably over kill. With the thicker liner it became more challenging to get the folds right.

I finally finished washing all the gravel and getting it put into the bog and finally turned it on for the first time. The last pic is how I diverted the flow from my filter to the bog. I put a Y in it and now the bog and filter each have their own shut off valve so that I can control the amount of flow to each one.

Its a Heritage River birch.
I like the look of the reddish peely bark on it. I have a birch but it's the white kind and not much peeling on it. Don't know what kind it is as it came up from a seed in a neighbors plant pot. She did have a tall weeping branched type in her yard so it could be an offspring of that one. All I know it is one fast growing tree for sure!
