When choosing a front gate for your property, you want to find one that is functional as well as decorative. With so many styles available, how do you know which one is best for your home? Here’s a list of gate designs and their benefits to help you make the best choice.
Gates that swing into your driveway are an excellent choice when you have a level area and ample parking room in a garage or side drive. They are best in areas where your driveway opens on a busy road. This can mean cars or joggers. Opening in, they won’t affect the daily movements of your neighbors.
If your driveway moves uphill or is quite short, you’ll want to choose a gate that swings out toward the street. This will keep it from sticking or blocking your parking space. However, these are best on rural homes where they won’t interfere with traffic.
An option that won’t disrupt your neighbors or your parking area is a sliding gate. As long as you have fence space along the front line of your property, you should have room for a sliding gate to open.The best way to judge what gate you need is to take a good look at your driveway and see what kind of space you have available.
