It's right next to the house. There is a 4 foot space, a walkway next to the house. There's a wood fence on the other side.
We want a gate to close off the entrance. We don't need it to actually be secure, or locked or anything. Just something low cost that doesn't look too bad. Usually, when they put in the fence, they also install a gate. But somehow, it didn't happen.
It's a rental house for a friend. He doesn't want to spend much money on it.
He also doesn't want to ask the owner to put in a gate. Owner hasn't raised the rent for years and he has a theory that if he starts asking for things, he'll start thinking about the house and will raise the rent.
Does anyone have any ideas of what we could use for something that looks like a gate?
Here's a photo, if this works. The house is on the left, the fence is on the right. And there's an opening between. With no gate.
