Re: other gate pics

Agreed. Microclimates are valuable. Still I think it might be important to give even more attention to spacing when plants have reduced air flow because of a solid fence. You can also achieve the microclimate with shrubbery which will allow some air through. And as for sun, if that solid wall reduces sun you need to space plants further from it if they are sun lovers or choose something else.

I'm not against privacy fences, I just know that they do change the environment, sometimes for the better though as Ceres suggested.
