Privacy Gates with Trellis Fence Designs

These stunning privacy gates and trellis fence designs were created for a client in Burlington. This is a project we did nearly 20 years ago in Burlington, so forgive the poor image quality.

It is an interesting and well-designed project so we have kept it around for now but it is ready for an update. It is a trelliswork fence with a privacy gate– you can peek in the trelliswork but you cannot see through the gate.

Think of a solid entry door with 2 sidelights.  It is a solid heavy design that can be used to create a trelliswork fence any size you like.

Gate Plans with Privacy

These are gate plans that utilize a laminated sheet of marine ply. Designed to last a couple of decades, this gate will not sag. It features a peek a boo trellis screen in the middle to add a prestigious look! The gate plans are DIY and Step by Step.

It is actually a quite simple detailing, but the layering of parts makes it look more elaborate. You will need standard carpentry tools, nothing more complicated than a table saw and miter saw.

You should have a year or two experience to breeze through this plan.  Consider sealing the posts before putting them in the ground for extra durability. Read our stain guide in the plan for more tips!

A Trellis Fence Design

This trellis fence design will walk you through the process of building a private or open trellis fence.  It comes with a more private gate and a private option for trellis side screens as well.

This trellis design may look difficult and involved, however, it is actually fairly simple to build.
