More than just an added layer of security, your gate and fence are the first things people would see—a “welcome sign” of sorts for your home. Because of this, the gate and fence should establish the signature look of the house itself.

Have your architect design a gate and fence with lines that reflect your house’s façade; and use materials that are evocative of the overall character of your home.
