Constructed Wetlands

A constructed wetland is an artificial “bog”, designed to purify waste water, and provide habitat for migratory or native critters (we love watching the geese and listening to the frogs). They act as a biofilter and help cool the local microclimate as well.

They are a naturalists dream for a backyard, and can be a valuable source off food and relaxation.
