I have just almost completed my latest garden project.
What garden would be complete without a little garden bridge? There was a nice lady in Kitchener who had a garden pond, and when her grandchild arrived on the scene, she thought she should get rid of the pond, for safety’s sake. She advertised it on Kijiji, and really it did not look very appealing, but I went to see it anyway. I got the rubber for it, and the landscaping blocks for $25, so that fit into my own modified rule that there could be nothing more than $25 in the secret garden.
While I have not built the pond yet, I did build the bridge ( mainly from recycled material ) that will sit beside the small pond which will be built in the midst of the hosta bed to the right of the bridge in the 2nd photo. Here it is with its prime coat of paint on just the top. I will let the rest weather like the rest of the cedar bush and other erections therein.
