The simplest garden gate can make a huge difference in the presentation of your beautiful garden, and most importantly of all, it will keep your garden safe. No one wants that ugly eye sore at the edge of their garden with its rotten wood and rusty hinges. It can put anyone off from wanting to enter your garden, and if you are planning to sell you house forget it. Potential buyers will take one look at your garden fence and wonder what else you have left so carelessly to rot.
Time‐travelling back a few years, the best option for doors between house and garden were central‐opening double doors (French doors) which are still popular today. Fifty‐ish years ago, sliding patio doors enabled us to embrace more light in the home. Typically, these comprised two panes of glass that could slide left or right within side‐by‐side parallel grooves so that, when closed, natural light and a good view could be enjoyed. To open, one door would slide to overlap with the other door so that the total width of the opening was similar to that of French doors. Another down‐side of sliding doors is that they all too often became 'sticking' doors which became worse with the introduction of double glazing, doubling the weight of the doors and reducing the glass to frame ratio.
