Wooden gates have always looked beautiful on a home, and that’s never going to change. If aesthetics are something that you value, you will be pleased to learn that there is a wide range of wooden gate designs on the market, from driveway gates and large side gates, to garden gates that form an entrance for your property. With so many designs readily available on the internet, you should easily be able to find a design that will be suitable for you and your needs.

If you are going to have a new gate installed, there are some key considerations to take into account. You must know that the gate is going to fit, is going to be in a style that you like and will be of a high quality. By shopping on the internet, you can be assured of most of these things – as long as you do your research. Many of the best garden gate retailers will have in-depth information on measuring up, to help you ensure you are ordering the right size.

When you are ordering a new wooden gate for your garden, this is a rough guide to the process you should go though:

  1. Browse wooden gates online. There are lots of different designs on the market, so by taking this step, you will be narrowing down the options and making sure you really know your own tastes. This helps you narrow down the search when looking for actual gate designs that you can purchase – your eyes will immediately be drawn to the designs that will work best for you aesthetically.
  2. Measure up accurately. There are many good guides to doing this online, as long as you are looking at websites of quality garden gate companies. These guides will show you exactly where to measure to and from, so you know that you have been accurate.
  3. Decide on the installation. Are you going to install the gate yourself? You may need to ask someone to help if you are buying a larger driveway gate, as these will be heavy and difficult to lift on your own. You can also ask a professional to install the gate for an additional cost, and they may also be able to help you measure up to ensure you are getting the right gate in the first place.
  4. Find the gate of your dreams. You will need to find a garden gate by searching extensively online, looking for the gate that will be right for you. There are so many different options, this step can take a while. If you find that you cannot find a gate that is the right size, you may be able to choose the design you like and have it made to measure for your gate opening.
  5. Place your order – check for the delivery terms and conditions. Your new wooden gate will be delivered to your door – make sure it comes with the fixings for installation, or that you have ordered these separately if you need to.
