How difficult is it to create a fen?

Fen reclamation is more complicated than marsh or shallow-open water reclamation because a fen is groundwater fed. In order to successfully reconstruct a fen, you need to successfully reconstruct the hydrology of the system. In addition, conditions that favour growth of fen-specific vegetation and accumulation of peat must be established.
