This bridge has been existed since ancient ages and has been used for ages. For years, garden bridges become the access for the visitors as well as the decoration for garden.
Metal garden bridge is designed in various sizes, heights, styles, and feature additions. Its length is usually from 5 to 20 feet and 3 feet for width. Most of metal garden bridges have flat platform to step on, but some have semi-arched surface. The part of platform consists of metal planks which are arranged regularly.
The features usually added to metal garden bridge are hand-rails or side rails. The shade can be added to protect the users from the harsh sunlight or rains.

To make it perfect, create a small stream, pond, or retrain under the bridge. The combination of both small stream and metal garden bridge surely will give a fantastic view for your garden.
