Custom Planked Garden Gate: Handmade By Master Craftsman
We have created a traditional, solid wood, custom planked garden gate with an eyebrow arched top. The gate features a vertical planked wood main panel, with an opening at the top below the semi-arched top. 3 wood planks (vertical in the center, and one diagonally across each side) are the upper opening for added security to your garden entrance. The solid wood, vertical plank design, gives the gate a traditional feel, and the thick, solid, old growth timber provides a maximum level of security and durability to the elements. The perfect side entrance gate should always do three things: create a private intimate atmosphere, protect your property, and hold up against the toughest weather.

History Of Wooden Garden Gates Through The Eras
Wooden garden gates have been used for centuries as an essential feature of gardens and outdoor spaces. They serve multiple purposes, including providing security, delineating boundaries, enhancing privacy, and adding aesthetic appeal to a property. The history of wooden garden gates can be traced back to ancient civilizations, and their design and construction have evolved over time.
Ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, were among the earliest known cultures to incorporate gates into their gardens. These gates were typically made of wood and served both functional and decorative purposes. They were often adorned with intricate carvings and designs, reflecting the artistic sensibilities of those civilizations.
During the Middle Ages in Europe, garden gates became more prevalent and played a vital role in castle and monastery gardens. These gates were primarily made of timber and were designed to be sturdy and secure. They were often fortified with iron or metalwork, serving as a means of defense against intruders.
In the Renaissance period, garden gates took on a more ornamental and elaborate style. Inspired by classical architecture, the gates featured symmetrical patterns, intricate carvings, and sometimes even painted scenes. These gates were often made from high-quality hardwoods, such as oak or mahogany, and showcased the wealth and status of the garden owners.
During the Victorian era, garden design became more formal and structured, and the gates reflected this style. Wooden garden gates were commonly constructed using pickets or panels with decorative elements, such as finials and scrollwork. This period also saw the introduction of wrought iron elements combined with wood, creating a distinctive look.
In the 20th century, garden gates became more standardized and mass-produced. With advancements in manufacturing techniques and the availability of new materials, such as steel and aluminum, wooden garden gates started incorporating these materials for added durability and strength. However, traditional wooden gates remained popular among those seeking a more rustic or traditional aesthetic.
Today, wooden garden gates continue to be a popular choice for homeowners and garden enthusiasts. They are available in various styles, ranging from simple and functional designs to elaborate and decorative ones. Modern wooden gates often incorporate sustainable practices, such as using responsibly sourced timber and environmentally friendly finishes.
