Chain link fence: I can’t live with or without them! The chain link fence in our yard (installed decades ago by the previous owner) was above me

From the day we bought our place. It’s not my favorite, but a fence is a big financial investment. Since our kids and cat are still very functional, we decided to flex our creativity muscles and make the most of what we have.

Instead of completely replacing the fence, we planted climbers and other greenery to camouflage most of the yard, and worked with Handy Products to create a beautiful stained cedar gate (that smells amazing!) to extend the existing chain. Reference conditions.

This post includes a DIY garden gate tutorial with downloadable PDF plans as well as instructions on how to remove your existing chain link fence and install a new wooden fence. There is so much goodness in this post – let’s get to work!

1. For wood stains, use a handy paint pail with liner + a high-quality stain brush. I have used weatherwood stains that are applied with a brush and left to dry, not wiped with a cloth.

Pro tip: Don’t work from the original stain container. Pour what you need into a handy paint palette and seal the stain container.

You’ll stay mobile while you avoid stain gates, while the magnetic brush holder acts as your personal assistant, holding your brush and catching drips when you need a free hand. Allow the first coat of stain to dry for approximately 60 minutes. After drying, assess whether another coat is necessary. I only used one coat here.

2. Replace the handy paint pell liner with a clean one and apply 2 coats of external waterproofer to protect the gate from tearing, warping etc.

Standard chain link fence gates hang on post hinges, which are essentially metal pins attached to support posts. If you want to hang a wooden gate on those metal pegs, you’ll need hinge strips with metal eyelets large enough to accommodate the metal pegs. After much searching and two separate trips to the hardware store, I found these 14 inch hinge strips to be compatible.

4. Attach the handle/latch to the opposite side of the gate. Before installing the gate latch, drill the metal post (with a sturdy metal drill bit).

Side panels can be supplied from 200mm wide to 1500mm and supplied with a single post and cover, the garden gate is the gateway to your property. They can be big or small, tall or short, artistic, original, spectacular, modern, romantic, rustic – as you can see, the options are practically unlimited. We’ll look at the different types of gates and see their key features, the requirements they must meet, and the most popular material choices.

The main functions of garden gates are to provide property security and often privacy. The structure must be stable. In contrast to internal doors, garden openings are in most cases frameless. Posts or posts of wood, concrete, brick, stone, etc. are placed on either side of the garden gate to mark the opening in the fence. Sometimes a U-shaped structure or frame can be used to attach the door, or it can be attached directly to a fence or garden wall.

There are a few things to consider when choosing a model for your home. Consider the height of the gate, as its dimensions must match the fence. For example, a huge gate mounted on a fence will look out of place. An important condition for the reliability and durability of the gate is the strength of the pillars. They have to withstand the weight of garden fences, wind and other elements. Another important aspect is the aesthetic appearance and compliance of the landscape design of the garden and the style of the house. Maintenance requirements must also be considered. Some materials (wood) require regular maintenance – repainting, sealing, etc., while other materials, such as iron, are not so demanding. Of course, price is the main factor that determines the choice of material, design, etc. It’s not a good idea to buy the cheapest garden gate, but when you’re on a tight budget, it doesn’t make sense to go for the most expensive models. A qualified landscape design specialist will help you choose the best option.

According to the swing type, garden gates are divided into two groups – swing and folding. The most popular option is the oscillating opening, this model is considered a classic and has many significant advantages:

When choosing a garden gate, you need to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of different models. All doors are classified according to two main characteristics: design and material.

In some cases, the gateway acts as the main element of protection against intrusion into the site. Such structures are tall, very durable, with strong locks, but can be aesthetically pleasing. Usually, such designs are decorated with forged elements, which give lightness and spaciousness to large structures. However, gates usually have a more decorative function, while the task of protecting property is entrusted to garage doors and house entrances. The height of such structures is low – no more than two meters – and usually the locking system is simple.

Gates can be metal or wooden, often combined with stone or concrete supports. Forged models are usually handmade and have a unique charm and sophistication. Sometimes we see a beautiful design for the entrance area, where the gate is combined with a pergola or plant arch and climbing flowers that add visual appeal to the house. Nowadays, the choice in the market is very rich, depending on the design, many types of garden doors are offered – single, double, with wings or sliding opening. Depending on your personal needs, you can install a garden gate in the yard as a barrier between two different areas and separate them. It takes place between vegetable garden and flower garden.

Garden gates are made of wood, wood composite, plastic or metal – the most popular materials are stainless steel, iron, aluminum. The choice of material depends on the personal taste of each homeowner, but it should be complementary
