Garden Gates


I have always loved wrought-iron gates. These two gates were made up to my design, and I am absolutely thrilled with them!
This gate is to the side of my driveway.

This is the front gate. The wall is over twenty years old, but works well with the architecture of the house.

Another photograph of the side gate. I added mosaics and gems to the flower pot, as well as mirrors, and finished it off with crushed marble.

A look inside the garden. In April last year I removed all the lawn and used the space to plant flowers to my heart's content. This is the result.

Another view of the garden - notice the hub-cabs!

A closer view of the previous photograph - when the sun is out this entire section of the garden becomes a mass of purple flowers!
