Re: Ideas for fencing a raised front verandah but retaining 2-way access

I find gates and doors that swing onto steps is a bit of a pain, my back screen door has that problem.

Re: Ideas for fencing a front verandah

Given you’re elderly Id suggest a handrail and retro style metal verandah rail . Personally I wouldn’t obstruct access with a gate , I would fence the yard creating greater personal safety for yourself as well .  Add a good security light and camera system to further deter intruders.  See if your local Lions Club can help you out.
