What is the bonsai tree on right side of the bridge? - How long does it take to train the tree to that shape?

Becky Harris added this to Making an Entrance Grand
This Japanese style entrance accomplishes what Zen gardens do - it gives visitors a chance to contemplate their surroundings. It transitions from stone path to wooden bridge to the final staircase; each part of the journey is a unique experience.
John Hill added this to Bridges Home: A Sense of Entry
The approach to this split-level house overlooking the Pacific Ocean (appropriately called "Sea Cliff") starts to illustrate the importance of what a bridge traverses. Here the landscape is carefully manicured, a microcosm of the larger surrounding landscape. The overhead plane directs one's gaze downwards to the plantings and the vista through the doors beyond.
