A garden gate welcomes visitors into your garden or home. The most prevalent garden gates are the side yard, driveway, and front entry gates. When it comes to your gate’s appearance, the options are limitless. Your gate can be large or small, wood or vinyl, or even wrought iron. Read on for ideas to customize your garden gate!
A Wrought Iron Gate for Your Home
If you prefer a classic feel, customize your garden gate with a wrought iron gate. Wrought iron is one of the most common ornamental gate types. They can be produced with complicated patterns and designs. In addition, some gates are built to appear like leaves, trees, or plants, while others might feature a family name.
A wrought iron gate is known to be durable and weather resistant. Keep in mind that most modern wrought iron gates are not 100% wrought iron but powder-coated steel created in the traditional wrought iron style.
Customize Your Garden Gate with Wood
Customize your garden gate with a wood design. A wooden gate will provide a welcoming entrance to any garden. Wooden gates also have a solid design if you prefer privacy or an open, picket style. Additionally, a coat of paint or stain can creatively transform a wooden gate.
Moreover, ensure you choose a wood type that can perform well outdoors. Certain types of wood are more vulnerable to weather and insect damage than others. However, a wooden fence will require painting, sanding, or staining every two years when you choose the right type of lumber.
Vinyl Gates Require Little Maintenance
Lastly, the best thing about owning a vinyl gate is that it doesn’t require much maintenance. A vinyl gate will not rot or rust and will most likely last longer than metal or wood. With vinyl, you can select from different styles such as a privacy gate, lattice gate, or a picket garden.
Overall, there are various options when you want to customize your garden gate. One idea is to install an automatic entry for driveway gates. You can operate the garden gate with a remote, intercom, telephone, or keypad.
