We can use a variety of timbers to make our driveway gates. For this lovely set we used a Scandinavian redwood which is a softwood. It’s Latin name is Pinus sylvestris. This timber is not on the CITES ( Convention on international trade in endangered species appendices) and is widely available from well managed sources.
Redwood softwood gates - The Wooden workshop Bampton DevonThis timber can be used for gate construction and is a cost effective alternative to hardwood timber but it will require maintenance as it must be treated with a stain / paint once hung and be regularly maintained to preserve the timber.
