Japanese Pond Bridge Ideas
Stone, water, and bridges are all dominant elements found in traditional Japanese gardens that are also symbolic. Bridges are points in the garden where the pond and garden can viewed and enjoyed without obstruction. They are a place of contemplation where the coolness of the pond or stream can also be enjoyed.
Water is very important in the Japanese garden. It can be present in different forms such as a pond, stream, or waterfall. It is an expression of nature and symbolizes renewal, continuity in life, the afterlife, and calmness. And often, water is actually not even present in the garden but is smbolized itself by raked pebbles or gravel. Made of several symbolic elements itself, this Japanese garden pond bridge creates a lot of the atmosphere of this landscape all by itself.
