Throwing a Father’s Day Barbeque: Recipe Ideas
With Father’s Day right around the corner, many children (and some mothers) are scrambling to find the perfect gift. But what does your dad want? The truth is that most fathers want nothing more than to sit back and relax this Father’s Day. So instead of giving your dad an elaborate (and probably expensive) gift, give him something he will really enjoy – a nice relaxing backyard barbeque. Because let’s be honest, the one thing most dads like more than relaxing is food.
Get the right gate
Like most other aspects of a chain-link fence, you have a few options when it comes to choosing a gate for it. This page summarizes the primary choices you’ll need to consider.
Walk-through or drive-through
This mainly concerns the width of the gate. Will you need to allow a car to drive through the gate or not. Typically, a walk-through gate consists of one panel and will allow a person or possibly a lawnmower to move through it. A drive-through gate usually incorporates two panels that latch in the center.
Swing or sliding
A swing gate pivots on a hinge like a door, while a sliding gate operates sliding glass door by moving along the fence. While swing gates appear in either walk-through or drive-through varieties, a sliding gate is almost exclusively used in a drive-through context. Sliding gates are ideal for incorporating electronic opening systems.

Do you need a driveway gate?
The reasons for installing an automated gate for your driveway may initially seem obvious. They provide added privacy and security for your home and can make your property more attractive. But there are a couple other benefits of gates that you may not have considered.
Keeping things in
Gates can be a great way of keeping children and pets from getting out of your yard. When someone is coming and going, it gives you the chance to make sure you know where the kids and animals are and restrain them if necessary.
Keeping things out
People aren’t the only things homeowners want to keep out of their yards. Many spend a lot of money on tall fences to keep deer out only to leave wide opening for them at the driveway. Tall gates that compliment a deer fence are available and effectively keep deer out.
