Don’t forget to see to the gateWHAT YOU’LL NEED: Your chosen gate, galvanised screws, screwdriver, wooden blocks, drill, level, and a friend.HOW TO: Now that your fence looks great, don’t spoil the effect with a rusty old gate. There’s a smorgasbord of gate styles available, and the look should reflect the personality of your house. If you live in a modern dwelling, for example, people should not enter the property through an ornate wrought-iron gate. First, confirm the size of the opening and buy a gate that will fill the space. Elevate the gate on wooden blocks and ensure the gate is straight using a level. Use galvanised screws to attach the gate hinges to the support pole, checking that everything is level before tightening the screws. Having a friend to support the gate while you work will make the whole process much simpler!AVERAGE TIME: About an hour.TELL US Have you recently updated a fence?

10. Modern statementA contemporary home calls for a contemporary gate, and this one fits the bill. Its geometry and dimensions create an alluring entrance, and the gate also gives this home some added security. The door swings open to reveal a long boardwalk through verdant gardens. Lovely.
