Garden Bridges: A Footbridge Adds A Little Special Extra To The Landscape Garden-bridges-043014
If you have the room in your backyard, why not build a garden bridge? A small footbridge is the perfect way to add a little something extra special to your landscape. There are so many ways to incorporate a bridge in your backyard and it will not take a whole lot of time to do.
Add A Pond And Foot Bridge To Your Garden
Building a pond in your backyard is a great idea to get everyone’s attention and to also create a peaceful place for you to relax in. You can build a pond near your deck and then add a footbridge to get across. This would be a neat attraction to anyone’s home.
Professional Or Amateur
When you are deciding to build a bridge in your backyard, you have two options. You can either build the bridge yourself or you can hire someone to do the work for you. Hiring someone to do the work for you could cost you quite a bit. If you do the work yourself, you will save money and have more fun showing off your work.
Creating A Footbridge For Your Landscape
To create a footbridge that leads you to your deck or garden and extends over a pond, you will need to have wood, nails, and a little creativity. The first thing that you need to get into shape is the frame for the bridge. This will be whatever shape and length you decide is best for your location.
Starting On Your Pond
To get going on your pond, mark out your area with paint. Dig out the area that you want to have your pond in and go three or four inches deeper than the desired depth of the pond, which would be like 15 to 20 inches.
Get Rid Of The Debris
Remove all of the roots and sharp object that may put a hole in the liner for your pond. Make sure that your hole for the pond is level. If it is not, then the water may not sit right in your pond and will make it look uneven.
Sand For The Bottom Of Your Pond
When you are ready to put the liner in the bottom, coat the hole with sand. This will help keep the liner in place. It is fine to cut away some excess of the liner to make the line easier to manage, it is also important to keep enough to cover the edges of the hole. You may also want to let the liner warm in the sun to make it easier to stretch.
Setting Your Footbridge
Once you are ready to put the bridge in place, place some stones around the ponds edge. Choose some creative looking stones and rock to place around the pond to add some flare to your bridge. Now you are ready to install your bridge and make sure that it is secure. Once the bridge is in, you are now ready to enjoy your new backyard landscape.
