Light, simple yard gate of PVC and 1 inch pipe for the dog – rustproof and hinged

Here’s an easy and cheap gate system to keep small things in your yard or out of it.

A piece of 1 ¼ inch PVC pipe fits well over a 1 inch galvanized piping. It is rustproof, light and doesn’t scratch. It may be any height or width.

The metal pipe is driven into the ground and the PVC slides over it. The PVC rotates on the metal post to act as a hinge for the gate.

The gate frame is also made of PVC that is assembled with glue or stainless steel screws.

The plastic fencing or fiber screening is attached to the frame with plastic zip ties.

Anchoring the gate closed is simply a screw in the ground or a long nail.
