Tips for Building a Wire Gate
It’s sometimes referred to as a fence gap, a Western gate or Texas gate. Whatever you want to call it, a wire gate is economical. And anyone capable of building barbed-wire pasture fence can fashion a gate, using the same basic materials and the same tools. It might not be as pretty as a store-bought gate made from brightly painted steel tubing, but it’s functional. And some folks think a well-built wire gate is aesthetically pleasing, too, in a rustic sort of way.
