Do you want to clean up your garbage/recycling bin collection area? Or maybe you need an extra wide gate that operates properly with good heavy duty hardware? This customer in the northeast community of Coventry Hills asked us specifically for a gate with an opening of at least 48 inches (four feet) between the posts so that he could get his black and blue bins in and out of the yard easily in all seasons. When planning a fence installation and considering the width and locations of gates, think about where you will potentially be moving items such as lawn mowers, wheelbarrows, and even snow blowers or recreational items. Gate latch hardware normally faces the inside of a yard, and you can also add any regular padlock to the heavy duty gate hardware to make any gated entrance more secure.
