Wood (either softwood or hardwood) is the most common material which is used in the construction of garden gates. Hardwood gates are, needless to say, more costly than softwood gates but at the same time they usually last longer. A number of different varieties of wood are used in gates, the most common being idigbo, pine, iroko, cedar, oak and redwood. When correctly cared for a reasonable timber garden gate should give good service and endure for ten years or more, so it is worth spending a bit extra to obtain something that is really strong, so that you won't need to shell out again in the forseeable future.
