Whether it's a wooden gate to a secret garden, an elegant entry gate, or a fully automated steel driveway gate - a gate can be more than just a door to your yard or driveway- it represents a passage from the outside world into the personal sanctuary that is your home.
And unlike doors into a house which are usually protected from the elements, outdoor gates are exposed and are routinely subjected to the harsh effects that result from direct contact with the environment. As such, it's probably a good idea to insure that they are built to withstand all the attendant wear and tear a good gate allows.
Below, you will find that form does follows function- as these custom wood gates are beautifully built- and beautiful to behold.
