Thanks you! and yes the skippies overflow into the top of the bog and there is plumbing under the bog with water pushing up through the gravel. The first level of the falls is a mound of dirt put there from the original pond dig, with 1 layer of cinder block up to the second level.Pecan it's stunning. So your bog is plumbed from the bottom and then you have the skippy filters that also flow over the top of the bog into the pond? Also your falls, it looks like the 1st level is 1 concrete block high and then the bog is 2 concrete blocks high is that right?
We are looking at redoing our bog and filtration and I'd like to add more bog to mine, thinking about doing another level, somewhat similar to this.
At first we just had a water fall and then I added skippies to have some filtration. I chose skippies over a bog because I didn't want to take up a large amount of space. Abt 2012What made you add skippies versus expanding your bog?
Thanks Tula! We had the big construction project (addition to the house) going from 2013 till the end of 2014 which we ended up doing ourselves. Since I had to buy a bunch of tools (air compressor, guns, saws, etc) and the construction is now done, I have been running around like a little kid with tools in my hands looking for things to do with them. LOL. They made the deck project easy.We've missed you and your gorgeous pond photographs!!! You've been hard at work...it all looks stunning
Ahhh I assumed it was originally a bog.Then I started planting plants in and around the waterfall and liked it so much I wanted more so I created a small bog but no plumbing underneath, just the skippy water flowing over the top. Abt 2013
