16 gorgeous garden gates

Welcome to the garden! With these pretty gates to greet you, you'll want to spend even more time in your gardens!
  • Welcoming wall

    This garden entrance has it all: it's an arbor, trellis, and gate, all in one! The whtie wall adds height and dimension to this space, which is built into the side of a hill, and the trellises on either side of the gate serve as windows, offering a view into the garden ahead.

  • Asian inspiration

    This pretty gate has an Asian feel to it, but it would fit in well with any setting. If you have access to a welder, you could recreate this yourself. Weld a metal grate to a frame, then tack on pieces of sheet metal for the vertical bars. Paint the whole thing red, and you're set!

  • Ornamental iron

    This ornamental wrought iron garden gate may not do much to keep critters out of the garden (they could just walk around), but that's not its purpose. It was made to be beautiful, and it is!

  • Barn-style entrance

    These simple, rustic-looking garden gates made from reclaimed barn boards fit in beautifully with the low stone wall separating this orchard from the rest of the yard. A very high wire mesh fence surrounds the orchard, but it doesn't distract from the view at all, and is hardly visible. The stone wall doubles as a bench, making this spot perfect for entertaining!

  • Pop of color

    This pretty sloped garden is full of green and gray, and the brightly painted fence and gate provide a much needed pop of color. This type of trellis-style fence is perfect for supporting morning glories, clematis, or other vining flowers.

  • Garden gifts

    What a great idea! If you have neighbors that walk past your garden, hang a basket of veggies on the gate for them! An inexpensive chalkboard on the front of the basket invites passersby to share in your garden's bounty.
