Bridge and Deck, Larkspur, CA
The Japanese style wooden bridge (taikobashi), which overlooks a trout pond, goes from the second story of a house to a deck that leads up to a bonsai garden. This gives the owner an easy access to the garden which, previously, was a rather steep climb. The cedar deck includes a pergola for wisteria or “fujidana” and Japanese style hand carved railing. The bridge, deck, and pergola are constructed with Alaskan yellow cedar.
