4 Timber Path And Bridge Projects To Add Aesthetically Pleasing Features To Your Rural Property

When our family quickly began outgrowing our home, my husband and I couldn't decide whether to add onto our current home or move into a larger one. One day, when we were checking the local area looking for "home for sale" signs, we saw a sign we couldn't take our eyes off -- there was a large plot of land for sale for a great price in a great location. We had never thought of building our own home before, but after a little research, we realized that it wasn't as costly as we thought, especially considering the great deal we got on the land. The entire process was a learning experience, but thankfully, the building team was very pleasant and helpful. We now love our new home, and I am excited to share our experience on our new blog. I also plan to post many planning and construction tips!

If you have a rural property, then you may want to do improvements to improve the aesthetics of the landscape. Practical features can be built with timber, like paths and bridges that make it easier to get around different elevations in the terrain. The following timber projects are some of the features that you may want to consider adding to your rural property to give it an aesthetically pleasing look:

1. Creating an Aesthetically Pleasing Timber Foot Bridge to Cross Streams

There are many aesthetically pleasing features that can be created in your landscape using timber design. If you have water features, creeks, or streams, you may want to consider adding timber foot bridges to your landscaping design. These features are practical and attractive architecture that add value to your home.

2. Protect Wildlife and Plants With A Raised Foot Path Foot Bridge for Your Property

Another option that you may want to consider when adding practical and aesthetically pleasing features to your landscape is a raised footpath. The raised footpath can be used to protect areas with wildlife and plants that you do not want to be disturbed by people walking over the area and causing damage. The paths and bridges can be used for native wetland areas or for gardens that you design and plant yourself.

3. Give the Drive Entrance an Interesting Feature With A Covered Bridge to Your Home

If you have a rural property with a creek, stream or gully in the front of your home, this can make it difficult to install a drive for access. Therefore, a bridge may be a practical solution to access your home. To make this feature more interesting and aesthetically pleasing, consider a timber-framed covered bridge to add an attractive feature to the entrance of your property.

4. Add Timber Bridges for ATV And Foot Traffic to Get Around Your Large Rural Property

If you have acres of land and need an ATV to get around and do work, then having access paths and roads is important. Sometimes, these roads or paths lack bridges to get around easily. Bridges that can be used by ATV vehicles, animals, and foot traffic can be aesthetically pleasing and practical features to add to your property.

These timber path and bridge projects will help give your property practical and aesthetically pleasing features that add value to your home. If you need help with building these features, contact a timber bridge building company to start planning your project.
