CUSTOM WOOD GATE #96  
 


Point Mendocino, CA

The original Garden Gate #96 on a perfectly lovely landscape and residence, overlooking the coastline at Point Mendocino in Northern California.

Our purpose here is not to provide a pair of wood gates that upstage the surrounding landscape and residence, but, moreover, a design whose subtle beauty is inherent to the setting.

.The schematic of a tightly created landscape of native grasses and plants, pitched against the open expanse of the Pacific. Linking one to the other are the centerpiece garden gates.

Odd, in that the site is relatively close to the Prowell shop (3-1/2 hrs north), and one of the more unique and intriguing gardens within the entire corpus of the landscapes Prowell has been involved with. And yet, given the infrequency of the drive north, it might as well be Maine.

CUSTOM WOOD GATE #96  
 


Point Mendocino, CA

A single garden gate on the south side of the property, flanked by the same continuous hedge.

And for those wondering why this blissful corner of the universe is not more populated than it is: Note the sky--a pale sky dulled by the interminable fog. And wind. And mist. And cold.

Let's take a Sunday drive. We leave the Prowell shop, heading west and within 5 minutes we're passing through heavenly rolling meadows banked by groves of ancient redwoods as we approach the protection of the low coastal hills. We lose the sun, replaced with a sudden otherworldly fog squeezing through the low passes and at this juncture we roll up the windows and you understand my insistence, back in the heat of Sebastopol, on bringing along a warm wrap. We turn on the wipers to clear the mist and a Mozart sonata to clear the carbons from our minds while passing a farm or two, peopled by the ancestors of the original Italian dairy farmers of the mid 1800's who remain the sovereign caretakers of this heaven on earth while like we process the hills turning greener and the dairy cows spotting the countryside as we bank into the last turn and merge along the coastline with the visibility reduced to the yellow line or two dividing the road between the crumbling sandstone on the right and the seemingly endless nothingness on the left where the known world disappears down an invisible 400-foot embankment to an empty beach littered with driftwood and whale bones as we turn on the heater and turn up Mozart against the sound of a wind that threatens our course between the yellow lines and now we reach a floating existence, crawling along, insulated from anything and everything linked to the Sebastopol reality we departed only 20-30 minutes earlier. The aforementioned mental carbons drain onto the headrests, replaced by the empty space of thoughtless thoughts in this world so wisely protected long ago by insightful zoning as a preserve of climatic shifts, of geographical departures, of timeless cultures, of a backdoor Sunday drive just around the corner, while simultaneously light years away.

And finally, the house itself.
Note the putting green.

 

 

Why is it, after all these years, that a simple comment from an admiring customer can still have its affect. Upon completion of this project, the general contractor forwarded over a note sent to him by the homeowner with whom we had not met nor had contact with during the course of the commission:
"Incredible . . . wouldn't it be wonderful if the professional world was populated with c. prowells .

Base Price + 13% (Featuring 5 grid columns per row. )

Illustrating #96 at only 36" height. Showing a grid pattern of five across instead of three. The added grids horizontally gives us smaller grid sizes, which in turn translates into a higher middle gate rail. A necessity here, on such a short gate, lest the grids dominate the proportions.

Something's wring with the posts. Too tall.

CUSTOM WOOD GATE #96  
 


Atlanta, Georgia


A landscape almost dominated by stone walls that is quieted, or perhaps endeared, by the introduction of the workmanship and subtle design offered by these small garden gates. In a year or so, when the planting schedule matures, the entire landscape will appear more inviting.

Shown with the Rocky Mountain Hardware Gate Latch #414

Seattle, Washington


A Seattle, Washington residence showing the Garden Gate #96 with the lower pickets at a closer 3/4" spacing instead of the standard 1-1/2".

Note the subtle alignment of the fence panel horizontal grid divider to the gate's horizontal grid divider.

Also shown with Fence Panel style #19.

Seattle, Washington

Another entry into the same courtyard, showing the #96, as a double Entry Gate flanked by modified Fence style #2, with the pickets on both the gates and panels set at the more narrow 3/4" spacing. An ideal way to maintain a modicum of privacy while not resorting to the aesthetics of a solid barrier fence. At 3/4" spacing, the viewer, at 6' distance, must stand within five degrees of dead center to see through the spacing. At greater distances, the visibility closes even more so.
