Invite visitors to your garden with an enchanting entrance and stylish gate.
A simple wire gate decorated with roses creates a pretty entrance -- and offers a clear barrier -- without obstructing the view. The entrance still feels welcoming, despite the bigger gate and arbor behind.
What could be more inviting than a flower-filled entrance to your landscape? Here, climbing roses, verbena, and foxgloves create a charming entrance that just begs you walk through.
It's natural to look inside a gate -- especially if it's partially closed. Take advantage of that and use your gate to frame a spectacular view.
Take advantage of old tree limbs to create a charming, rustic entrance to your garden. Here, the rough wood is a perfect partner for the irregularly shaped flagstone walk.
A simple grid pattern really comes alive when repeated in the fence, gate, and front door of a house. The grid pattern is accented by a rounded shape in the gate and gentle curve pattern built into the sidewalk (reflected by the giant container behind it).
This Asian-inspired gate and basic pergola lend a decidedly Eastern feel to this patio. Take advantage of structures in your landscape to help enhance -- or create -- a stylistic theme.
Give an old gate new life in your garden. Old pieces from salvage-supply stores, antique shops, or garage sales have loads of character -- and may offer great bargains to boot.
