My gate threshold is 3 ft and I want to make sure that I closely match the gaps used in the rest of the fence. I recently had a lot of fencing done, and the only real mess they made was of a gate quite similar to this -- in which they made almost every mistake that could possibly be made. If you have a saggy, badly-built gate there are two quick, cheap fixes, and you might even avoid potential problems by working these into the actual design of the gate.
Another way to strengthen the gate, is by inserting one or two diagonal, tight-fitting struts (the lower end of the diagonal should be at the hinges' side).

All Built Fence Company Affordable fence installation, construction, buider, design, repair. Because they have moving parts, gates are likely to need repair or replacement before the fence itself. The strength of a gate is 80% dependent on the stability of the post which supports the hinges. For easy, illustrated instructions on how to cement in a fence post, please jump to that part of How to Fix a Wooden Fence. If you need a gate which is wider than six feet, perhaps for a boat trailer, plan a double-door gate with hinges on both sides.
Another gate design (not for the boat gate) is a Dutch door gate split into a top and a bottom. To build the gate, measure the gap and plan a gate door which is 1" less than that space.
You can add a cable running across the other diagonal now or after the gate has been working for a while.
Once the frame is screwed or nailed together solidly, use blocks of wood to lift it into position for the attachment of the hinges.
The last step before starting the fence pickets is to cut off the extra height of the fence posts.


Do not attempt to butt the fence pickets against one another without leaving space between them for a little expansion from moisture.
I recommend starting with a single screw to temporarily pin boards to the frame and check if their bottoms scrape as the gate swings open. Here's a sample photo of simple gate with a support cable and turnbuckle but no diagonal brace.
As you fill in the gate with pickets, you will likely be left with an odd space requiring the modification of at least one picket. Despite taking twice as much effort as the fence itself, making a new gate that opens and shuts cleanly is a very satisfying experience.
You don't want the gate to swing one way or the other all the time, it should be nicely balanced. How to set fence posts in concrete, how to frame a fence, how to attache horizontal cedar fencing.

Building a beautiful garden gate is a straight forward process, if you use the right plans and materials for your needs. A wide fence is harder to engineer because of the additional weight, but you should at least give yourself a gate wide enough to maneuver a wheelbarrow through.


Home depot sells a wide variety of hinges as well as a few shrink-wrapped sets of gate hardware, including hinges and latch. If you surface-mount the hinges, the latch will need to be on the same side, which should almost always be inside the gated area. It may be tempting to build it with smaller tolerances, but gates always sag over time, and it is preferable to have a gate with a slight gap than one which scrapes by each time it opens.
You can check if the gate is square by comparing the diagonal distance between the corners.
Include a turnbuckle so that it will be easy to adjust (tighten) as the fence sags down at the latch end.
My husband and I have been looking at the different types of wood that we can use to rebuild our fence, and also comparing prices. I prefer the hinges to be on the inside so that the gate is somewhat hidden from the street view. The difference between these numbers, in this example 45", is the proper height of your fence frame square. Judge for yourself if it is better to have the gate pickets two full inches above the ground than to have the gate start to scrape after one month of settling. After reading the installation instructions, it says that the fence boards must be installed on the side where the door opens. Ideally the top and bottom of the gate will be the same width, but measure it and build a gate to fit the actual space.
Either orientation will work, but I recommend laying the diagonal brace flat against where the fence pickets will be.
