When you begin to investigate garden gates, you’ll quickly discover that there are so many choices on the market today.  You can get a garden gate that has built-in seats with a matching arbour overhead and walls behind the seats that can be used as trellises.  This type of garden gate can also be purchase in a single seat style with an open back and pergola roof.  An enjoyable place to stop, put your feet up and enjoy the sun.  Or to take a long, relaxing, appreciative look at the results of your hard work while you sip on a lemonade or iced tea.

You might prefer to get simple arched trellises that transition you from one area to the next in your yard.  You can add some nice twinkling lights to these to light up your yard for nighttime use.  With the right kind of growing vines, a trellis gate will enhance any garden decor.

To enhance your garden gates, you can also purchase matching garden chairs to make random seating arrangements in the different areas of the yard and they will also fit in nicely with your patio design.
