14 Gorgeous Garden Gates You Can Make

A garden gate is a functional part of your property and so serves a practical purpose, but it can also be a most attractive feature. The fourteen gates described below are a mixture of designs ranging from the unusual and quirky to the purely practical, but they all have one thing in common in that they are DIY projects. The gates are described in an article by Kathy which I found on The Garden Glove website.

Is there anything more iconic in a garden then the gate that leads you inward to the secrets that Mother Nature has inside? Garden gates welcome a visitor in a way no mere pathway can. And yes, they can serve a purpose too. Whether you need to close in a fenced backyard, hide an unattractive side yard space, or just want to add a point of entrance to your garden, you can build your own garden gate.
