You May Have Walked across one of these before, Probably Walked Through one.
Is it what Separated your own Area from that which is not.
Either to keep something in or to keep something out.
Howbeit we walk through things we Dont understand or have never thought to?
I will show you how i built this simple Flat top Picket style Garden Gate,
A starting point to expand on the simple structure of the garden gate.

You will need to make some  practical considerations to suit your own needs.

Read what i have to say then see what you can make of it...

And also Check out my new blog, for Other ideas and Projects




Step 1: Materials

This is what you will need to build a gate

First Decide what size you will make, i am making a 1500m (5ft) x 1200 (4ft) Gate

16 Straight Pickets (1500mm long)
25mm Screw for treated timber (approx 70)

Phillips head drill bit
Tape Measure
A large flat area to work on.

And a milk crate (you never know ,they are always handy)
Thanks! attempting to replace my gates this week & this post helped!
Great project, the gate looks simple and elegant. some questions... <br>-in step 3 you show a diagonal, but your text does not mention it. would it make sense to put this in? it looks like it would add to the esthetics and support. <br>-where do you hang it? i assume from the horizontal supports? ...and from 4x4's in fence post concrete in the ground? <br>-would it make sense to prime before assembly? <br> <br>Only asking because i plan to do this project and want details...THANKS!!!
