Is something missing from your backyard landscape design, but you just can’t put your finger on it? Maybe your yard needs an island of its own.
Creating an island is a smart way to break up a yard and add visual appeal. It creates a private and intimate place to enjoy your hot tub or fire pit, a whimsical spot for dining, a quiet area to relax on the hammock, or a focal point for flower beds. Creating an island effect can be done by linking stepping stones or a garden bridge to your island.
Bridges add texture and character to your landscape as well as provide a transition from one area of your backyard to your island. You can create a creek or dry bed filled with river rock, flowers, or plants for your bridge to cross.
