Gates are the portal between public street and your secret garden space. Before choosing a gate, think carefully about the materials. A solid wooden gate is better suited to a rural garden instead of a metalwork gate. If your fencing is timber, manufacturers often sell gates to match their fence panels, to create a continuous run. But if your boundaries are constructed in brick, stone or are hedged, then the choice is yours.
New fences and gates should not be over 1m high if they are next to a highway used by vehicles (or the footpath of such a highway). But if you are lucky enough to inherit a high boundary in a front garden, a solid wooden gate can screen the road. And also, it allow you to make the most of a fully private front garden. Now check out these 54 creative garden gate ideas as a unique touch of your front space below.
