Besides The Obvious What Makes a Garden Interesting?
The list is never ending - however, if you look around it might be a simple gate that is functional and directs you in or out of the garden. Simple does not mean without detail - design for me always comes first. But the artisan who uses their craftsmanship and sets the functionality of a gate shares equal in my respect.
As Spring approaches, we have been busy installing gates this week. Even though not completely adorned in place, I could not wait to share them with you.
Details for consideration:
- Painted white = classic
- Pickets set on angles
- Birdhouses for finals
- Wonderful custom strappings and hinges
- Painted black = modern
- Rounded pickets set into drilled holes top and bottom
- Spanish Cedar for extra strength and durability
- The perfect little final adorns the top
I like to think of a gate as a fine piece of jewelry hung outside.
