Preamble
Build a Japanese arched Garden Bridge or a Curved footbridge
In the summer 2012, I plan to build a wooden arch bridge.

22 feet long to cross my garden stream.

The creek splits my 200 feet long backyard. Around is banks to reach the other side of the creek was not practical for us.

I did not find anything on the internet to help me. So I share my project with you... if this building idea can help some gardeners or landscapers.
