Wooden garden bridges are the organic way to enhance your garden. A wood garden bridge acts as a magnet, drawing all eyes in its direction, and inviting guests to wander through the natural beauty you've worked so hard to cultivate.
Pine Garden Bridges
Pine is one of the most popular choices for wooden garden bridges. A soft, knotty wood, pine is colored white or pale yellow, and is very beautiful when given a stain finish. Pine wood garden bridges blend in well with greenery, and would be a good choice to complement a garden area that features shrubbery or a small stream with high grasses or lily pads.
Cedar has long been a popular choice for wooden garden bridges because of its natural qualities that make it highly resistant to cracking, rot, and decay. Wooden garden bridges made of cedar are beautiful finished or unfinished, and would add a bright, cheery air to your floral garden. A simple, single rail cedar wood garden bridge would contribute a modest, subtle note to your favorite backyard corner.
The redwood is an unforgettable and majestic tree, and wood garden bridges built from redwood are just as memorable. Redwood's durability is renowned, and because of its eponymous color, wooden garden bridges age beautifully as the redwood matures. As with cedar, it's often thought best to leave a redwood garden bridge unfinished. Your wood garden bridge will always be an eye catcher if it's made with redwood.
Decorate With Purpose
A wooden garden bridge can be many things: a pathway, an observatory, a symbolic horizon. It can be a decorative accessory or a useful tool. Whatever their purpose, the sun always shines on homes with decorative wooden garden bridges.
