I have fixed several sagging gates by putting a big gate caster (or castor)
wheel on the gate.. As long as there is some kind of solid surface under
it, it does the trick for many years. Casters I installed ten years ago are
still doing just fine.
Just look up gate casters on the web. they are available many places. The
last two, I got from Ace Hardware. You may need to add a little something
to make the caster solid on the gate. I add wood and use big bolts.
Reset the two posts in cement with cement in between them, with or
without slabs or pavers. Set deeply, it will minimize or eliminate
the heave. If it does heave anyway, it may heave uniformly. For even
more stability, run those posts long and connect them at the top, too.
Use a sign like "Sal's Side Yard" or something equally flowery.
Or move the heck out of the Great White North, eh, hoser? ;)

Which begs the question, what areas of employment are so prevalent in
Hell, it's frequently cold up here in Canada, we should have a lower
unemployment then. Snowmaking? Icemaking? Summer air conditioning?
Probably no need for that definition if it's a location like Alberta.
Every person in Canada has heard and read about the employment boom in
that province. They've probably also read about the increase in the
accompanying cost of living too.
