Fence Gate Ideas
The Basic Fence Gate with Nets
This is a basic wooden fence and its gate idea. However, the black paint job finish makes it look stunning, and the simple design gives a minimalistic appearance. It is as sturdy as it can be and will serve its purpose well.
However, the extra thing that makes it an idea worth mentioning is the additional chicken wire or metal netting added to it. This makes the whole fence and the gate urban in functionality and design while retaining its basic look.
Wooden Log Fence and Gate
If the name does not give an idea of what it is, the image below surely will. It makes use of logs in two ways:
Placing one log above the other in parallel going vertically upwards (the image on the left)
Placing diametrically cut pieces of logs arranged together to form a fence (shown in the two images on the right). The gate on the fence goes the same way the whole fence is.
This idea gives that close to nature or cabin in the wood vibes. It is an amazing looking fence, especially the second variant.
One can explore more with it and add a wooden door, or whatever they want. Their creativity is the only limit to what they can do.
Aquarium in The Fence
This is not a cheap one. This is expensive but worth the money. This will certainly attract lots of attention from around the neighborhood.
This one makes use of a hardened glass aquarium, built on top of a stone fence, with different species of fishes. This one needs skilled workers to make or even a contractor who can get the job done.
The gate on this fence can be a normal metallic one, as this one surrounds the whole house’s perimeter. Its gate is the main gate of the house.
Weaving the Fence Gate
This is a unique amazing fence idea that makes use of the thin branches of a tree. Green flexible and long branches are used to weave the wooden logs to make the fence.
It looks wonderful, fresh, and close to nature. The image gives an idea of how to weave the branches.
The fence gate on this one will be made the same way as the fence.
Fence Gate Made from Recycled Lumber
This is an idea that makes use of the best out of waste. Although the leftover timber or lumber is not exactly waste, it can lay there unused for quite some time after some construction work or carpentry.
That is where this amazing fence idea comes into play. The uneven heights of the old lumber wood make the fence look aesthetic and modern.
Giving them a good paint job, like a dark brown, makes them appear fresh and appealing. It resembles the look of tall skyscrapers, one beside the other in cities.
The Huge Quilt Fence
This one resembles the appearance of a stitched quilt in design. However, it is huge, made of wood.
This fence gives that grandeur look to the lawn or garden or the lawn. However, the design needs to be used with a metal chicken net as well, and anyone can exit or enter through them with ease.
The fence gate here is not as big as the entire fence’s size, but half the size at the very least. For the gate, the fence makes use of one-fourth of one vertical block of the fence.
New Life to The Old Ones Fence
There might be some old door in the house that can be used here. Otherwise, giving new life to the old fence and the fence’s gate can make it look like a new fence and make up for an amazing fence idea.
One can paint the fence, decorate the old gate with shrubs and creepers, add some new door handle and doorknob to the door, and the fence is good to go.
If nothing else, even without much of a paint job, the old gate on the fence, with the fence receiving a new paint job, will give out the beautiful ‘rustic’ look.
An Outside Garden Fence Gate and Fence
This might look like a weird idea, but it is worth a shot and looks unique and nice if done properly.
The main idea here is to have a normal wooden fence with a gate and a small garden parallel. The main catch here is that the garden should be outside the fence and not inside.
The fence and the gate can even overlap the garden. This overlapping will look better only if the fence has vertical wooden planks (or similar wooden material) with some gap between each pair of planks/logs.
The garden can be made into a flower bed, and it will make the whole fence bloom with flowers once the season comes. Having evergreen flower plants or shrubs and bushes can work just as well.
A Wooden Reserve
This is a large fence that encloses an area that looks like a reserve or a sanctuary.
The fence is made up of wood, painted with a gold cedar color. A big gate is made on one side that looks like an entrance to a sanctuary as well. The gate needs careful carpentry and artwork to make it look worth calling a sanctuary gate, even if metaphorically.
There is a necessity to use it with a metal net or chicken wire as well. Otherwise, enough spaces in the fence make it quite easy for anyone to pass without an issue.
The net surrounds only the lower half of the fence, which gives it a beautiful look, and one can view it inside it. The net can be made with any other strong fiber material as well. However, that will not be as secure as a metal one.
Base with the Old Stone Fence
This is an aesthetic looking fence. It makes use of the base of an old fence made up of stone. A new stone base can also be used if an old stone base is absent.
Then, a new wooden fence can be made on top of it. The new fence can be of whatever design that suits the eye; however, the image structure is one of the best ones that complement the stone base.
A Full Stone Fence Gate
Stone fences are not something of the past. People still use it to provide a serious look, have a strong build, and a nice raw appearance.
These stone fences give the garden a pleasing appearance that feels just as close to nature. Using some premium stones, it can be made to look even more premium.
Adding an entrance that resembles Stonehenge will just up the game a little bit. Otherwise, the fence is beautiful, just as it is.
The fence gate is usually absent or is a normal wooden log or timber gate, as it goes best with the stone.
Simple Log Fence Gate
The design is straightforward. It makes use of wooden logs arranged in the manner, as shown in the image. However, in this type of fence, the wood is not treated/painted or anything of the sort.
The wood on the fence is left as it is. In time, it starts becoming greyish in tint and starts resembling a rustic appearance. That is the aim of leaving the wood as it is.
A net wire makes it more secure. The gate can be made as shown in the image, or a simple greyish rustic wooden fence will look just as great.
Once it is done and enough time passes, the fence becomes a rustic and simple wooden log fence that looks great outdoors.
The name gives it away; if not, then the image surely will. The logs are sharpened at the edge, in shape like a pencil. The edge is painted, and the body with the same color.
Each log needs a different color paint job. Otherwise, it will look monotonous. The logs are arranged erect. This makes the fence look like a pencil color box.
A creative and amazing fence idea that makes the outdoor look fun. From the fence gate to the entire structure, everything resembles the pencil-color design.
Stone Inside Wooden Chamber Fence
There is not exactly a wooden chamber. This design uses wooden planks and metal nets to make a structure that can hold stones on the inside.
The stones are visible from the two sides, surrounded by the wood on the perimeter, and the center, as shown in the image.
It is a classic looking fence that is strong and durable. Looks great with gravel ground in the surrounding. However, it still looks just as good anywhere else outdoors.
Piano Keys Fence Gate
This one is not made up of anything unusual. There is the use of the usual wooden planks or timber used here. What makes it different and worth the name is the use of extra smaller wooden planks in between.
The bigger ones go white, and the smaller ones go black. Like how the piano keys look. One can use an image of a piano for reference. It looks very appealing, is beautiful and artistic.
The whole structure, the fence gate, and the fence itself go with the same design. An amazing idea to make the fence that pleases the muse of music without using anything new but creativity.
