Picket gates are characterized by their vertical wooden boards, commonly known as pickets. These gates have a timeless and charming appearance, perfect for cottage-style gardens or those with a rustic theme. Picket gates are also suitable for areas where you want to create a boundary without completely obstructing the view.

Lattice gates are known for their intricate and decorative patterns created by intersecting strips of wood. These gates add a touch of elegance and create a visually appealing focal point in your garden. Lattice gates are commonly used to enclose a particular area within the garden or as a decorative element in the entrance.

Farmhouse gates exude a rustic and countryside charm, perfect for gardens with a farmhouse or rural theme. These gates typically feature a combination of wood and metal elements, such as metal hinges or latches, enhancing their vintage appeal. Farmhouse gates are designed to be sturdy and durable, making them an excellent choice for larger gardens or agricultural properties.

If you’re inspired by Japanese gardens and want to create a Zen-like atmosphere in your outdoor space, consider installing a Japanese torii gate. These gates are traditionally made from wood and feature a distinctive shape with a curved top and two vertical supports. Torii gates symbolize the transition from the natural world to the spiritual realm and are often used to mark the entrance to a sacred space within the garden.
