Ideas for Your Fence Gate

A fence around your property keeps the things you hold dear safe. It also keeps unwanted people and pets out. To tie your fence together, and allow for easy access to your backyard space, every fence needs a gate. If you’re planning on tackling this outdoor project soon, here are a few ideas you might like to consider for your fence gate.

Go for the white picket fence gate

Not only is the white picket fence something that the American Dream is made of, it also perfectly fits the aesthetic of coastal communities. If you’re adding a fence gate to your property, you can’t go wrong with the white picket treatment. If you need help getting started, look to the pros for guidance on materials, installation, and estimated cost. 

A magical garden gate

Another option would be to surround your space with a high quality wooden fence, then add a darling wooden gate that swivels. The gate could be as ornate as you like, and give outsiders the sense that wondrous things lay waiting inside. This kind of fence and gate treatment is a great way to add a little dramatic flair to your outdoor space.   

Think outside of the box

When it comes to fences and gates, there’s no reason that you have to go the traditional route. Consider reusing exterior building materials for your perimeter fencing like old shutters, doors, or even windows. The key to success for a project like this is to make sure the material is meant for exterior use so that the fence lasts for a good, long while.   

Consider a natural fence gate

When adding a fence to your property, tied together by a gate, you don’t need to limit your materials to steel or wood. For a natural effect, consider adding a fence around your property created by plants. A talented landscaping company would be able to advise you about the best materials to use for this endeavor, and how to plan for access to your backyard space with a natural fence.
