Gates are an important feature of a garden–particularly if you enjoy your privacy, or if you have a fence. Regardless of whether your gate is in the front yard, backyard, or even leads to another part of a massive ornamental garden, as the incredible wrought iron and stone gate above does, adding flowers to the design is a perfect way to dress them up.
Some of the garden gates in this collection feature a single flower trained up the side of the fence or over a trellis above the gateway, while others feature a wide variety of ornamental flowers or wildflowers.
Regardless of how many varieties of flowers each gate features, you’re sure to love each design! Get inspired to dress up your gate and fence with flowers! Continue to the next page to see our gallery!
