Paths, steps, and footbridges are three key elements that help define a landscape and how people move through it and enjoy it. In How to Build Paths, Steps & Footbridges, builder Peter Jeswald explains how to add practical and visually pleasing elements to any property. He suggests ideas that complement, rather than dominate, the home and landscape and recommends natural and manmade materials including wood, masonry, stone, earth, and vegetation.

Filled with color photographs, How to Build Paths, Steps & Footbridges also includes hundreds of clear instructional drawings of plans and construction techniques. Jeswald provides careful advice for every stage of a project--up-front planning, assessing a site, finalizing a design, and selecting proper tools and building materials for construction.
