Garden Bridge Plans

Landscaping companies charge a small fortune to build a garden bridge. Save money building your own bridge, using free garden bridge plans that range from simple and stylized to intricate and arresting.

Create a simple arched walkway over a depression or build a full covered bridge, complete with walls and a roof. There are plans that fit any skill level and budget. Add rails and details to customize your footbridge, spending a little or a lot as your budget allows.


Choose durable woods and protect with outdoor stain and sealer for a bridge that will last for years.

A garden bridge can be purely decorative, or serve a useful purpose. Either way, a footbridge adds eye appeal to any home and is sure to draw comments from guests.


Many garden bridge plans below have materials lists and useful how-to tips to make this a project the whole family will enjoy.
