Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water
I'm designing a garden path with pavers that meanders through an area with berms and slopes. I've come to a part of the garden that, until now, has been a mud pit when it rains. I've cut a channel to drainage and converted it to a dry creek.
Now that I have this channel, I need to construct a bridge for the path. The theme of my garden has relied heavily on stone, so I want the bridge to look like it's made of stone as well. For cost and skill reasons, I don't want to go all stone in construction, so I've chosen to use a wood frame with ledger facing (the pre-fab kind that's about 3" thick).
Can anyone suggest a way of attaching the ledger stone to wood. Should I go with the chicken-wire/asphalt paper method, screw them into the wood dry, construction adhesive, or what?
Thanks in advance for informed replies.
