Garden Bridges

Putting in a garden bridge is a wonderful way to not only add functionality to your space but also add elegance and class. Our bridges are Amish made in Lancaster County, PA and are made with #1 Grade Materials. They can come in either vinyl or wood (Pressure Treated Southern Yellow Pine or Cedar) and there are many styles to choose from. You can choose the right fit for your garden space or pool area. They can be delivered anywhere in the USA. 

The bridges have approximately a 10% incline on the bridge floor. They are harmless to pets & plants. Bridges over 20′ in length will have a laminated beam. Weight limit on the regular or wide bridges is 1,000 lbs., the weight limit on narrow bridges is 500 lbs. Bridges can be customized to hold more weight. The lumber is double kiln dried. Custom bridges are available, built to your specifications.

The Carriage Shed – A Bit of History

Carriage Shed - Custom Barns and Buildings - A Bit of History

The Carriage Shed is a family owned and operated business. We love being able to work with people from all over the country and coming up with designs that fit their needs.  We enjoy being able to work with the Amish on these designs.  From large to small and everything in between.  The Amish have tremendous experience building any structure you desire.

The “Here In Hanover Magazine” wanted to do an article on family business here in the Upper Valley and they selected The Carriage Shed as one of the businesses. Here is a short article explaining some of the History and Background of The Carriage Shed – enjoy!
