Choosing a New Garden Gate

Posted on May 25, 2018 at 6:51 am

A garden gate is an important part of your garden, as it is used for its design features as well as for safety. When somebody enters your property and comes through a gate, it gives a real homely first impression and will make the person feel welcome. It will also help to deter people you don’t want in your home from breaking in.

The main deciding factor here is the material of the gate. The most popular materials are wrought iron, or wrought iron style, and wood. Both will be strong and sturdy, though metal may not weather as much over time. Wood will look premium and will be very durable, but it will also start to weather.

Make sure you choose the right size, especially if ordering online. There are many different ways you could measure the opening for your gate, so follow any guides you are given very closely.
