Earlier this year I took this bridge out and brought it into my barn for much needed repairs.
earlier in Bob’s thread I did post a picture of the rotted bench work beyond the bridge which is also repaired.
Unfortunately I didn’t document the work for you guys , but here is the finished product.
Many of the bent bottoms were replaced due to rot. they were sitting on pressure treated supports that were more rotten than they were.
all of the lighter colored wood was replaced while upside down in the barn.
Once completed the bridge was reset in position, and the footings were replaced a couple at a time with PVC trim boards, painted a dark brown.
I used pea stone or river rock to simulate the river, and red rock from home depot for the rest, all atop weed block film.
hopefully this will help keep from getting the string trimmer too close. Built back better from 2008 initial installation.
