There have been a lot of severe storms in Austin recently. One storm was so strong that it broke the gate on our driveway. It wouldn't be a big deal and I'd probably just take the whole thing down, but we have a dog, which means that we need a gate. Replacing it has been on our to-do list for a while and it's it's literally held together with string right now, so I'll probably have to replace it soon.
Replacing the gate probably has future implication on what the backyard fence on whole looks like when it gets replaced
And maybe the frontyard planters too if we want to carry the them to the frontyard, like authentic mid-century landscaping would
So I've been waiting for the perfect mid-century fence inspiration to figure out how I'm going to replace the gate. I think I found it.
I love the stacked look and it's really thick which makes it feel strong and solid.
And if you get a glance from the side, which you probably would with a gate, it still has a nice look.
I didn't have a ruler handy, but I think it's 2x4s on top of 2x6s with about an inch overlap.
I'm going to wait on the gate a little longer (the sting is holding up fine for now) so that we can come up with a complete plan for both the front and backyards, but I'm pretty sure this stacked wood mid-century fence style is going to play a role in the final outcome.
