Gates of the Hill Country, Texas, Page 2

.


Above, stone (done a bit differently) and functional gates between, plants in the middle. Not sure if this is one driveway or two. The fencing to the left and right of the gate appears to be metal pipe.


Above, same gate, a closer view, note the small black box on a pole on the far left, obviously some kind of entrance mechanism. Also note on the top far right, is a small solar panel for power, saw a number of these, and of course, middle, some kind of skull.


Above, similar building materials, stone, functional gates, and a Texas Star. This star is painted red, many are black or tan.


Above, stone, columns, gate, initial, plants, this gate has it all, I thought it was quite eloquent. The drive goes up a hill. The wall between the shorter columns in front and the taller columns in the back is curved along the ground and also gets taller as it goes towards the back columns. Beautiful craftsmanship.


Above, Texas sized functional, brick columns appear to have been painted. This gate is 8 to 10 foot tall. I find it interesting that they still manage to get some style into their functional gates.

Thanks to the gate builders of the Hill Country of Texas.
