Wear the gloves provided or expect the stain to transfer to your skin. It will also leave residue on surfaces-easy to clean, just be prepared. The stain still holds up on the bridge. It assembles easily and quickly. It is appropriately sturdy, this is set on a low portion of our sidewalk that we use daily, feels sturdy. Looks very cute. I added dollar store lights to the posts.
The wood on this product is very sturdy, and it comes nicely stained and polished. It was very easy to see what I needed to do to assemble it.
I bought this bridge to use as a ramp for my fianc. The apartments we live at put rocks as landscape in front of our patio making it impossible for my fianc to get out with his wheelchair. I havent put it outside yet but we have tested it inside and its very sturdy. It wasnt quite wide enough so I left out the three short boards that go by the posts and just spaced out the long ones throughout. Its now wide enough for a 24 inch wheelchair and we will be using it as an emergency escape ramp if needed.
For the cost, its great.After adding the supports, some paint...it looks great in my yard and I can actually walk on it.
We liked that it was easy to assemble. It looks amazing, and we are able to walk on it with no issues.
I'm very surprised how sturdy this bridge is once built, especially when it arrives in a box that only weighs 40 lbs. I love the dark stain and the bridge is fairly easy to put together.
Love this bridge!! We assembled it a little differently.Id highly recommend if your in the market for a garden bridge!!
This bridge came out just right! I got the unstained version as a family project to paint and assemble. Because the wood is more porous, it took a couple extra coats to get the perfect paint job, but it came out great!You do have to drill a majority of the screw holes, but this wasnt hard and made for a fun project. Great value for the money, and it feels very stable!
