The gate is finished and hung snugly on the new garden fence. There is something amazing about going into the woods, gathering tree branches , and building a garden gate. I have to admit my handy husband did the structural part... the measuring, figuring , and most of the assembly with nails and screws . ( This does have to be a working gate after all)
My part you ask? Creative director. I designed it, picked out the branches according to their beauty, and assembled them in place.
Many have asked "how" ? Here are a few pictures of the process.
|We assembled the gate with galvanized screws .|
|Laid out the four sides of the gate .|
|We hung the gate with metal brackets .|

I call this successful! For the cost of a few pegs and a bracket set, we have a garden fence and gate for $17.00!! I was told for all the hard work that went into this project we had better yield a major harvest. Maybe I will start a local vegetable stand? That is for another day......
Today, I walked through my garden gate to water my garden... simply bliss!!!!!
