First you would need an old door…Cut to height

No more moving a bale of peat to enter The Barefoot Garden

Had to run to Delphi Supply to pick up hardware…

Strap Hinges (which we opted not to use these), Stainless Steel Screws, and a Latch

First we needed to adjust the opening. We achieved this by adding a 2X4 to the hinge side post.

We used scrap wood to lift the gate from the ground, and used pickets to ensure spacing while attaching the hinges.

While digging for screws I came across these antique hinges in the shed…We opted to use them instead…Fitting. They are probably as old as the door…

We then attached the latch.

And these are my Boys…

They stood at the gate and barked while we were installing the Garden Gate in  The Barefoot Garden…

They are so lucky they are cute…
