Dear Rod, I just wanted to thank you so much for publishing the ideas on your website for building a simple garden bridge using 2" by 12" by 12 ft long stringers. Here it is May 7th, 2009 and I built a new 8 foot bridge for our pond from these wonderful plans I found on your site. I got my arch by placing small nails three inches up on each end of the 12 ft long board and one nail at the edge of the board in the middle and then bending a piece of 12 ft long 1" by 1" molding under the two end nails and over the top middle nail. I built my bridge over this past summer and I wanted to show you and maybe you can use my photos to further promote your web site. I found all sorts of bridges on my internet search, and this was by far the simplest and prettiest! My daughter and I purchased the materials on a Saturday morning and had the bridge finished in place on Sunday evening.


My fiance is a manufacturing engineer so he was looking into building one, but as we have no experience with building bridges and on your page it looked like people were allowed to ask questions I figured I would give it a shot. The folks down at Parks were visibly moved by this Eagle project and the children at play couldn't wait to cross over. Yes, if you are using Redwood you should seal your bridge, especially since you live in Co. Your easy to understand instructions enabled me to construct a beautiful 8 foot garden bridge to go with our newly landscaped yard.
I built the 8 foot bridge out of treated 2x12x8 (2) and deck planking cut to a width of 30".
It's just a one day thing so we are wanting to build a safe bridge for walking and picture taking, but don't want to break the bank.


It was planned (and built accordingly) to be somewhat temporary, but my father-in-law has kept it up ever since the wedding.
The supplies for the bridge, with 4 sets of posts and rope cost under $100 (that makes my labor worth about 5 cents an hour. I am in the process of re-doing my Japanese Garden, the former owners of my house took the original bridge and for years had no bridge until I seen your web site and instructions. My Japanese garden looked so bare, Now with the bridge next to my pond, it looks more complete.
