Gate fence post is important....Is it sturdy?
Hinges next....are they secure?
Cross bracing, and some small through bolts....carriage type.
1/4 " or 3/8" will stop sagging.
Some can use a wire and a turn buckle.......
Plywood on one side.....
all some ideas......
Corner angles.....another thought.
they come in all sizes and shapes...

My aunt has a wooden gate on a wooden fence about 4-5' wide. It's dragging
on the ground and the pickets are coming off. I can cut off a couple of
inches from the pickets so it won't drag any longer, but I'd like to make
sure the gate will stay in good condition.
I'm not impressed with the way the gate was built, it looks almost as if
they cut the fence, added a diagonal brace and hinges. (No pictures, the
gate and I are in two different states.)
If I rebuild the gate, how should I go about it? I've found only a little
bit on the Internet about building a wood gate.
Make it to fit, don't make it fit.
