What can I do with that boggy corner in my yard?

Bog Garden

If you have a really wet, slow draining area in your garden, don't fight it, use it! Sink a pond liner into the wettest area, puncturing a few holes around the perimeter for draining. As the liner naturally fills with excess water, you can plant it with bog loving plants, such as the pitcher plant and elephant ears.
