Re: Fw: Re Art in Garden talk


Joel had this one design that I loved for those of us who have privacy
fences. If you did that this would work. He made the gate out of the metal,
rather than wood, but instead of stopping at the gate, he took sheet metal
pieces and attached them to the two panels opposite each side of the gate.
The sheet metal pieces had cut outs of moons, stars, etc that matched the
gate. It was a very interesting idea as you then didn't have these plain
wood panels and this ornate gate. That way it drew the whole thing together.
If I do some kind of design on my drive gate I want it to extend from the
walk in all the way across to make it a whole piece. Just don't have a
design yet.

Where are you again Donna, I can never remember. We have some vines down
here that do take over the world!
