Starting A Wetland Garden

Eric wants to know what advice Rebecca would have for a gardener that wants to start a wetland, what challenges are involved in establishing one or is it as simple as just designing a low spot? Well, if you already have a low spot you are in a much better situation but designing an artificial wetland can be quite challenging. Dealing with nutrification, having too many nutrients especially if fertilizing is an issue, those nutrients end up in the water, then you get algae growth and invasive plants will pop up. This entirely constructed wetland has cattails and other plants that people struggle with in a natural setting.
