Yard Bridge

We’ve our own bridge from nowhere
And to nowhere it goes
Why it is even there
I’m sure only Gabry knows
- - - Poetaster

Ok watering restrictions and the actual cost of water led to eliminating a 300 square foot portion of lawn (still have about 2,000 square feet) and turning it into more of a xeriscape garden area.

We spent about 2.5 days planning an overall layout, designing a bridge, procuring the material, building the bridge, removing the grass, putting in a dry stream bed, cutting flagstone for a border, and finishing with mulch and small boulders. The pictures show the progression over the couple of days.
