Garden Gate #16 features an upper grid of approximately 5″-7″ square, with lower horizontal planks stabilized with our signature thru-tenon running loose through each of the lower planks.
CUSTOM WOOD GARDEN GATES #16
Mill Valley, CA
Let’s call this a Craftsman revisited/American Farmhouse style. Low pitch, extended eaves, divided windowpanes, full casing trim. So where does the horizontally-oriented fence fit in? It seems at odds with everything else. Far too rustic given the manicured condition of the residence itself. Perhaps they should have gone deeply in debt by commissioning prowell to continue the gate design throughout the fence panels. On the other hand, there are no rules; It’s your house and at your discretion to have fun–while staying within your budget. Prowell will not visit you in debtor’s prison.
