With Driveway Gate #9, in Marin County, we first introduced the Colonial Weave pattern in 2000 for this 1918 residence on seven landscaped acres where we were inspired to mimic the original Colonial Weave porch railings.

We also illustrate one option for managing a soft slope in the driveway grade. Each picket, from right to left, grows increasingly longer, with the bottom horizontal gate rail parallel to the sloping grade. This is referred to as a 'Racked' Gate, and is an additional 6%.

The grade drops approximately 7" left-to-right.

The upper section of each Drive and Pedestrian Gate provides an opportunity to design toward the precedent of any existing architectural details. Here we pick up on the pattern of the house porch and veranda railings, which unfortunately is not visible from the driveway.
