Gate and fence toppers are very popular for both residential and commercial fencing. A topper can help your gate stand out from the crowd, and adds up to a foot to a shorter fence to improve the privacy features of your fence. While toppers are easy to find, a gate topper that matches the style and functionality you’re looking for can be tricky.
If you are looking for a unique topper for your fence, consider one of these three tried and true styles:
Arbors are common gate toppers as they mark the entrance visually and look natural with wood fences. Arbors are also a great place to add climbing vines. A delicate vine of star jasmine or honeysuckle will add wonders to your backyard garden and are easy to grow in Florida’s climate.
Rather than adding a gate topper, you can install a gate with a built-in decorative element such as an arch. These are common for double-door gates and metal fencing, as it adds a sophisticated and historic appearance to your fence. An arched gate can also make it easier to spot the entrance from a distance.
Lattice toppers are common for both fences and gates, and can be easily installed on existing wood fences. If you add a lattice topper to your fence, you can match the gate topper or make the gate element slightly more decorative to mark it visually.
