Know which material you want for your gate. There is aluminium, steel or sometimes wood. Think through what will best suit your home and which one you like. Wrought iron is the popular choice. They allow shaping into different designs.

Style of the gate

How about one big gate or two halves attached and clipped in the centre? This also depends on the lay of the land, like sloppy or uphill.

Manual or automatic

Choose between manual and automatic models. Automatic ones will sense and open while the manual ones have to be opened by oneself. But if budget is your concern then do not go for automatic ones as they are costlier than the manual.
