Re: Garden fence gate

Great work, @Oreoprojects! I'd imagine that was quite a budget-friendly way of creating a gate and your construction methods looks the bee knees. Have any images of the gate in place?


Well done, and many thanks for sharing your project.

Re: Garden fence gate

Hi. Mitchell. Thanks for the positive comments. I have attached a photo of the gate attached to the fence. Yes  - it was very cost effective - materials from Bunnings Botany in Akl(always great staff in the the timber yard) cost me approx $80. I was quoted $550 - $650 for someone to make a similar gate.Garden Gate.jpgGarden gate 2.jpg
