Top 5 Modern Garden Gates

What Makes A Gate Modern?

Modern garden gates have a range of styles and sizes, but their common characteristic is to feature bold, clean, straight lines in their design.

This doesn’t mean that modern gates are boring, of course; far from it. Trellis and hit and miss styles still have a place in the contemporary garden, but old-fashioned intricacies and fussiness are out, replaced by greater simplicity and an increased sense of solidity.

Why Choose These Particular Modern Gates?

Our Top 5 Modern Garden Gates showcase a variety of styles but all of them have the following premium features:

They’re Made from FSC®-certified Wood

Forget metal, plastic or any other material, modern garden gates should be exclusively made from timber. And, if they’re made from wood, it HAS to be ethically-sourced.

They’re Pressure-Treated

All 5 of these garden gates are pressure-treated for a longer life. Therefore, you don’t need to coat them in preservative or paint because there’s no danger of them rotting, whatsoever.

15-Year Guarantees

The manufacturers show complete confidence in their wooden gates by supplying all of them with a 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

Matching Fence Panels

A modern garden gate suits a variety of fence panels or can act as a standalone side gate. What sets these apart is that you can purchase matching fence panels for all of them, which is excellent news if you’re looking to replace your entire fence run.
