A driveway gate makes a stunning and secure first impression to visitors arriving at your address. But choosing a residential gate takes careful planning and consideration.
Homeowners aren’t always experienced with the practical details of landscape design and gate installation. At Rick’s Fencing, we’re here to help you avoid extra stress and wasted money. Here are some important details to consider before you install your driveway gate:
- Make sure there’s room off the road to park and wait for the gate to open
- Make sure your gate swings away from the road, and not into traffic
- Gate placement works best on flat, straight portions of the driveway
- Leave entry room for large vehicles like moving trucks and emergency vehicles
