The bridges of Chinese gardens


posted on 9th of january, 2008

The bridges are the important part of Chinese gardens. That’s because the water,for example, streams, lakes, ponds, are the important part of Chinese gardens, too : )
Some of the bridges in these gardens are of stone, and some of them are of wood,including straight, winding and arched bridges.
The straight bridge, usually level with the riverbank or with the river to make the visitors feel as if they are surrounded by water.
The winding bridge has low balustrades.
The arch bridges can be divided into the single-arch and the multi-arch varieties.
The bridges in these gardens may be not cover a large area, but fit in well with the streams and lakes to yield a uniformed effect.
