Let’s build a gate so we can get in to the garden compound… you know, the one that keeps all the deer out?
Fast forward a few years:
You have to start somewhere and lucky for me I have a little flat ground perfect for putting it all together. Let’s take a look at a few pictures to help you get an idea of what we did to build this gate.
Used fencing nails and welded wire.
Another layer to keep the welded wire in place (if there was any doubt). Heavier, sturdy.
Flat service is coming in super handy right about now. Let’s draw these pieces closer together and secure everything with screws. Also: notice the chicken wire added to the bottom of the gate section. No bunnies allowed.
The more I’ve learned… the more I don’t use these. I like Timber Locks for almost everything now.
Big ties in the corners for stability.
Cross brace for stability.
Luckily, I remembered to measure what size it needed to be. Phew….
Man, I just love it when things work out.
It’s held up nicely over the last several years.
