For softwood gates, a simple application of treatments such as wood preservative or oil every year or two will keep your wooden gate looking good all year round for many years to come.


Privacy… something we all need once in a while, especially if you live in a bustling area. Homes that are situated in high footfall areas, may wish to find a way to reduce how much people can see of their property. A couple of our wooden gates can help to reduce unwanted attention and nosy neighbours, for example, a Chilton or a Easington Wooden Gate.
