Trade lawn for a long and lovely rain garden, complete with a bridge to span the water collection basin. This rain garden creates a focal point in the landscape with its footbridge. It’s part of an environmentally friendly front yard that replaces water guzzling lawn with eye-catching planting beds. The upper edges of the rain garden feature creeping thyme, which forms a green carpet. Plantings in the basin include ornamental fescue grass, sedge and other regionally-hardy perennials. The bridge elevates the rain garden to a landscape showpiece, tying it to the surrounding setting.
A narrow concrete bridge provides a path across a small pond. Lined with colorful flowers, ornamental grasses and rocks, a tranquil waterfall trickles down into the pond creating a relaxing garden atmosphere.
A windy bridge leads down to this gem of a home, designed by Johannes Zingerle and nestled in the hills of St. Barts. Gardens, patios and picturesque stone paths surround the residence and open it up to incredible views.
A custom designed architectural stone bridge connects flagstone walkways, leading visitors to different parts of the garden. The garden was built using stones in various shapes, textures and colors, ensuring visual interest is maintained through every inch of the landscape.
The designer wanted to create specific rooms for the family to enjoy throughout their garden. The tiki hut became a tropical outdoor dining area with a dining table and chairs from Janus et Cie. The client also requested two more elements: a water feature and a bridge, which features oolite and coral stone.
