    Hi Rudy, I found when I went to purchase my privacy fence that the 6x8 panels are actually very affordable! You can also make a neat fence out of pallets too!

    Do you mean gate?

    How wide is the opening for the gate? Single-swing gates can be used on openings up to 12 ft. Openings wider than that should have two gates that meet in the middle. Yes, it's more trouble to open and close, but it prevents damage to the posts and hinges. Here is a link to general layout rules. https://www.amazinggates.com/Gate-Layout-s/80.htm

    An alternative to the double gate is a rolling gate that moves sideways along the inside of the fence. A concrete pad should be poured for the fence to roll along. Here is a link showing the basic hardware. https://www.istylefurniture.com.au/istyleinnovations/hardwarekit/h22.jpg

    I made these wind-breakers/privacy screens to go round my deck from pallets, i'm sure you could do something similar and make a gate or fence for your driveway. It is so simple to do and best thing pallets are either free or cheap. I'd suggest getting a couple of long lengths of timber (the width of your drive) and then laying the pallet slats from top to bottom rather than horizontal like mine are, brace them from behind and attach to fence posts. Good with your project hope this helps. Dont forget to post a pic of how it turns out.

    I think that a new tile should definitely be put to the fence as well, so that the whole composition is in harmony with each other and there is no contrast, but only the beauty of the picture. I think that when I decided to do resin driveway installation a few months ago, it was the best decision for me and now my yard looks incredibly cool. I hear compliments all the time and am proud to have found a good service for it. Of course you should think it through and even consult with professionals so there are no mistakes, just awesome results in the end!
