Custom Landscaping Bridges For Your Garden

By: Joe M Guraru

Are you considering landscaping that tiresome backyard, or adding on to that already treasured garden? Perhaps you are considering a water piece, such as a man made stream or pond, as is commonly installed for its peace and serenity feel in modern back yards? Well, if you are, let me introduce you to another great little idea which may seem unnecessary but which will surely transform your garden into a truly spectacular place to spend time.

I'm talking about bridges. No, not one to allow the motorists a short cut on their way to work each morning, but instead the miniature versions, such as foot bridges, garden bridges, or bridges crossing that water feature I mentioned earlier. Whatever the bridge may be for, you would be surprised at how popular they are with home buyers - especially ones with children or gardening hobbies. The addition of a garden bridge is seen by most as a great way to improve the value of your section, without going to great lengths to achieve something dramatically off the path of mainstream thought. It's all very well to suggest that you add a foot bridge to your garden, but just where are you going to find one?

Whatever your ultimate goal for your garden is, make sure you consider the installation of a garden bridge as part of the planning process. They aren't as expensive as you may think, and if you choose the right provider / builder - you will just love looking out the window and seeing that prominent feature positioned nicely in your garden.

Well, that's the issue isn't it? Firstly, no two gardens are the same - therefore it's unlikely that those commercially manufactured bridges at the garden centre will fit the exact design that you have in mind for your garden. Additionally, you don't want a trashy or tacky bridge that sticks out and screams "I'm commercially manufactured!". So, to get around these issues, I recommend you invest a little more money in a custom built foot bridge for your abode. Don't for one minute think that this will cost you the world - because it certainly won't. You can find websites online such as, which allow for a custom made touch to your garden bridge requirement, without breaking the budget.

The other good thing about doing it through custom building websites is that you can ensure the people building your new foot bridge have a proven reputation, and are not just amateurs offering their services because they have nothing else to do. You must be very vigilant for this type of company - as the workmanship going into the bridges will be far from top quality. A good website will show you examples of landscaping bridges that they have built in the past, and may even provide customer testimonials to endorse the quality of work and the level of service that they got.
