One should not pay less heed to the look of a garden gate. A garden gate should look like something straight out of the story books, something that will make visitors feel like they are entering another universe. So the basic requirement for garden gate decor is creativity. Get as creative as you can get. Make the gate of metal and carve the metal in such a way that it looks like creatures all over the gate. Make it out of wood but not let it look boring and normal. Use your creative mind to fish out designs that defines your personality as well as your garden.
