A garden bridge can add charm to any garden. A garden bridge can turn an already beautiful garden into an urban oasis. It helps to highlight a water feature like a pond or stream. In large gardens it serves a function while also being a decoration. A garden bridge can be placed over a flowing stream or along a garden pathway. Garden visitors can take in the sights and sounds around them, with the added pleasure of walking over a charming water feature. Garden bridges are often curved, though occasionally, there are construct alterations as in the plateau. It is conventional to measure the length of a bridge from end to end, or by its “span”. For a small garden, bridges spanning 3 to 5 feet should do fine, for medium sized gardens, one can get bridges with 5 to 7 feet span, and for really large gardens, the span could be over 8 feet as your garden size will allow.
Cedar and redwood are by far the most popular woods for building garden bridges, although in this time, one can find decent and strong plastic ones as well. A simple garden bridge infuses a bland backyard with charm. In addition to aesthetic appeal, a garden bridge makes maintenance and gardening tasks more manageable by providing easier access to the center and the far side of the pond.
