Building A Foot Bridge

There is more than one way to go about foot bridge

construction. If you have decided to add a foot bridge or

two to your property you will want to know something about

foot bridge construction.

A foot bridge makes a nice addition to a garden area and

also looks lovely when constructed over a pond or Japanese

style dry river bed. There are several places to look when

you are ready for foot bridge construction.

There are foot bridge construction ideas in magazines and

books that are available online or at bookstores or

libraries. Home improvement centers may also have ideas or

plans for foot bridge construction.

If this is a first-time building project you may want to

consider a foot bridge construction kit. These kits can be

purchased online and many are easy to construct and come

with everything needed to complete the project.

Foot bridge construction kits will come with the materials

for many different sizes and styles of bridges. The foot

bridges may be constructed from pine, cedar or redwood.

Pine is attractive in its natural color or it can be

stained or painted. Make sure that that the pine has been

pressure-treated. Cedar resists mold and decay and it also

repels insects. It ages well and does not splinter easily.

Redwood resists rotting and holds up well in most weather

conditions.

If you want to pay less you may want to build the foot

bridge from plans instead of from a kit. This will decrease

the foot bridge construction costs. Once again, check for

foot bridge construction plans online where you will have a

nice variety of choices.

Foot bridge construction need not be difficult or

expensive.
