Re: shade/bog gardening


I thought that was it. Around here, the ditch is dug, gravel put in the bottom, and usually a pipe with holes in the top laid in the gravel. The pipe takes in the water through the holes, conducting it to a socially correct place (creek or drainage ditch) for egress. Farmers do the same in chronically wet fields. I think they call it "tile-ing" (phonetic spelling).

I think we discussed this before. In this part of the world, the difference between a drywell and a French drain is orientation. What we call a French drain is a ditch filled with gravel; what we call a drywell is a hole filled with gravel. The former is essentially lateral; the latter, essentially vertical.

Is a drywell & french drain the same?

Basically, yes; there may be some difference, but I sure don't know
what it is; may just be semantics from diff. parts of the country.
