Garden Gates

This Arching Cottage gate with Trumpet Vines is "California Eclectic" - Succulents, geranium and front yard swing set in Newport Beach 


Elegant brick walkway with rose arbor arching over the entry way in this Laguna Beach cottage.
This simple PVC gate is flanked by privet hedges. It needs some color or more white flowers in pots.

Craftsman and California modern with Bower vine

This casual unpainted teak gate is fun and funky. It suits the tiny friendly clapboard cottage

The curved brick walk way add charm to this entry. There is no gate but a wooden triangle will hold the wisteria when it droops purple cascades of flowers next spring.


Even the most casual of gates can be charming. This is an old style chain link fence with a trellis holding stephanotis - the white flowers are intoxicating. They grow very slowly and only in part shade. This vine may be more than ten years old.
Picket fence gate- this is also pvc ( not my material of choice but popular because they advertise in California the advantage of never having to paint or worry about termites. The plastic does age, oxidize and get chalky looking in our moist weather of Orange County Coastal California

 

Wooden craftsman somewhat Oriental feeling without any vines.
