Q How can I build a bridge over my stream?

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved - MRS G EVANS, LLAN­GOLLEN

AIf the bridge has to span more than a 1m (3ft 3in) it’s best to take pro­fes­sional ad­vice. Make sure it has se­cure handrails and, if it’s made of tim­ber, take mea­sures to stop it be­com­ing slip­pery in win­ter. For safety, set the bridge into con­crete foun­da­tions, dug deep enough so the first plank of the bridge lies level with the ground.
