    This would be beautiful covered in a blooming vine. Choose one that grows well in your zone, as you probably get lots of hot sun, right?

    1. Clean the sand stone with an acid wash. Seal with stone sealer.
    2. Clean and fill both sides with a sand base, and rocks. Use rocks of different sizes, and several large ones. And maybe put in a cactus or two.
    3. Paint cattle gates and fence with bronze paint. Paint your wagon wheels the same bronze.
    4. Hang large lantern, one on each side, between the supports. You can use battery operated lights or solar lanterns.
    What I've described would be low maintenance and a clean look. Hope this helps get the ideas rolling.

    There is sure too much going on, such a mish mash. Do you just leave the gate open, or is that white box an intercom and buzzer entrance electronic gate? Maybe paint it to match the fence with a nice epoxy paint. or remove if not in use. Put up an electronic warning system when someone drives through the gate.
    Why such high iron? is this to keep deer out of the pasture, does it serve a purpose? Think I would paint the new stuff. I once painted our ranch's entrance pipe fencing and gate using epoxy paint in dark green.
    Looks like fence in front of fence. Can you simplify all this by removing the old unused or damaged portions, and if need be replace with matching fence.
    I think I would find a prettier name plate for over the drive. Recycle some old wrought iron or make one of wood and finish with epoxy.

    Take those numbers down and attach more modern ones to the top of a side gate. If you're painting, use a high contrast color so they stand out.
