I love lattice. It provides a great growing area for climbing vegetation, and much artistic base. This is a gate I built to enter our upper lot. It is built to resemble the surrounding lattice, but be sturdy enough to be a gate. I also wanted to have an arch to knock down all the linear look of the surrounding items. As you can see by the picture, the gate’s right 2/3 open as a normal gate. The left third as a long steel pin that locks into the neighboring post to open the entire width up for large items.
You might also notice we installed a keyed entry (same as house key) for protection against entry.
