Unique Fence Design- Fence Plans with Horizontal Gate in Toronto
Here are unique fence plans with a horizontal gate. We created this fence design in Toronto in the Beaches Neighbourhood. It also includes a horizontal board fence section atop a retaining wall.
When working on a tight budget on any project it is about adding inspired features and keeping the rest simple. The understated architectural home is certainly minimalist, so we gave it a dressed up gate to work with some existing privacy screens in the front yard, and kept the rest of the fence simple. The gate gives a pop of detail in an understated fence plan. If well built we expect a fence like this to last 20-30 years.
Building our Unique Fence Plans
These unique fence plans were designed with practicality and functionality in mind. These are the plans that were actually used to build these fences and gates. For this reason, we did not include the basics of fence building that are included in DIY designated plans. If you need the basics, send us a note after ordering and we will send you a basic plan as well–free of charge.
Finishing this Unique Wood Fence Design
The gate and support posts are red cedar to be finished with semi-transparent stain, and the PT portion of the fence will be finished with a solid color to make the gate pop. We added another portion of the fence with horizontal boards as a garden backdrop as well. (see images above) Use a high VOC finish for best results. Follow the manufacturer’s stain guide for the best results. There are rules to applying an exterior stain that may not be common sense.
