Do you need a garden gate? This free-standing gate (no need to dig!) is designed to work with wire deer-fencing. It’s a simple DIY design.
This wooden garden gate is beautiful, easy to build, and easy to attach to deer fencing. It also has a simple weighted automatic closure! I wish we could take credit for the design. But that honor belongs to our friend Shane. We copied his design for this project! (With permission, of course!)
Here are a few of the features of this DIY garden gate:
- It’s tall enough to keep out deer.
- Attaches nicely to our metal deer fencing.
- It’s free-standing, which means we can move it if we decide to expand our garden. It also means we didn’t have to dig holes for garden posts… something we wanted to avoid on our rocky piece of land.
- We made a weighted closure, which ensures our garden is deer-proof even if we forget to latch the gate.
