HA HA HA HA Now for the gate… My wife and I built the garden gates this last year and covered them with chicken wire. We don’t have chickens but we do have voracous jack rabbits. The gates are simple 2×2 redwood frames and cross brace and we used a bisquit joiner and TiteBond III glue, (waterproof) and no screws or nails, (except for holding the chicken wire on). So far the gates, both, are as strong as the day we installed them. Here on the high desert the gates have srvived 120 summer temps, 17 degree winter temps, rain and two weeks ago 8 inches of snow. Oh, we used Thompson’s deck sealer on them.
