Here is a lovely old wood picket gate , with a curved accent , leading into a downtown Charleston, SC home near the Battery.
I really liked the style of this old fencing , the graduated heights and the heavier large supports of the posts.
I saw these a few times also, large impressive wooden gates leading into the driveways. Almost all the driveway gates were painted black.
This was on Tradd St., an unusual large double dragon gate ( this of course is only one half, I would love to have closed the gates to get a great picture of them together...but my luck...I would have accidentally locked them or something...so left them open.) Again, something I considered for longer than I should have.
Here was a backyard gate and fencing, looking a little worse for wear but interesting design.
Most of the fencing had ivy growing through it...I remember this shot because their were some men doing yardwork across the street...and one started singing a lovely Mexican song...I have no idea if it was a lullaby, a love song or what...but I did not want to leave that spot as it was so romantic.
This was a double gate leading into a very gorgeous home near the Battery. Great design.
Here is an example of the combination picket fence separated with a brick column and the heavy wrought iron in the front. Charleston -style through and through.
Here was one of only about two fences I saw painted a different color than white or black, looks like a rebel homeowner protesting against convention...this was a putty/yellow color.
Very charming , very inviting look.
Huge driveway entry gates painted white with wrought iron in the openings.
I hope you can get some ideas for fencing in your yard or garden with these photos. I will be showing some more of Charleston wrought iron, statues, fountains, houses and doorways soon.
" Enter by the narrow gate ; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it . " Matthew 7: 13-14
