A BUYING GUIDE FOR GARDEN GATES
Think about the gate’s intended use when choosing the type to purchase. You’ll probably want a tall, sturdy wooden gate if it’s for the boundary of your property and you need to offer seclusion as well as security for your kids and pets. On the other hand, a front gate can be more ornamental and smaller because you’re inviting people inside. Additionally, it’s important to think about your surroundings, including your garden’s theme and any existing walls or fencing.
What type of wood is best?
Hardwoods with a tighter grain, like Iroko and European Oak, are preferred options for wooden gates because of their density. They are extremely affordable and resistant to both insect stings and the sun’s damaging UV radiation. However, softwoods are especially economical and come in a variety of colours and textures to match whatever style you’re searching for. Don’t be misled by the name. Softwood gates are both affordable and durable. For wooden gates, the common Redwood, sometimes known as ‘Scots Pine,’ and the extremely robust Red Cedar are ideal. In the end, softwoods can endure for a very long time with proper care and maintenance.
