Garden Bridges


Garden bridges have many uses within the home landscape. Used in the correct way, bridges can make your yard a more enjoyable and interesting place.

Traditionally a bridge was used to span a river or a unaccessible area like a ravine or boggy area. In the home environment most people don’t have these sort of obstacles to overcome so we tend to use bridges a bit differently.

One of the main ways I use bridges is as a transition point from one area to another. This could be a point of entry from a patio to a lawn area, for example.
As well as the above, the different ways you can use a bridge have been listed below so check it out and if you see an idea you like, why not use it in your own place?
