    There are several good gardening books on Monet's garden at Giverny, France, which might help you. One, "Monet's Passion," is by a gardener who helped restore the gardens, and another is called something like, "Monet's Gardens Through the Seasons." I'd do a search at Amazon, or check with your local library. Your project sounds delightful -- and ambitious! Best of luck.

    I just saw one yesterday in my local Home Goods store. However it was made of metal and not very sturdy looking. But it was simple in design and could very well be made from wood. Which I think would be much, much better. Check out this basics on youtube You could add a variety of design elements to it. Maybe using copper pipe for vertical ballisters or whatever suits your personality.

    Hey, Louie! Take a peek at this You-Tube post. The fella on it shows about building it - maybe that will help.

    I've painted it, just for my own pleasure. What a beautiful addition to your garden! Please post pictures when finished.

    Did you see the bridge a fellow home talk viewer made out of pallets?

    Going traditional Japanese style or more of a modern feel to it? If you want it to be like Monet's bridge, you have got a job ahead of you.
