    Pros:  easy to assemble, good value
    Cons:  none at this price

    "If you spend a bit of extra time putting this together it turns out to be a perfectly decent gate. Materials are basic but the finished job will end up looking more expensive by applying some stain or paint. We are delighted with the end result, even more so when the neighbours ask you where it came from."

    Pros:  kit form allowing individual slat treatment, cheap, the ability to have a flat top/ curved top gate
    Cons:  timber quality, screw quality, untreated timber, overall finish

    "This product is average. It is the case of you get what you pay for. The product is untreated wood so it will require treatment with a wood preserver and then wood stain. It doesn't come with any hinges, handles, etc. This will have to be taken into account when looking at the price as they add a fair amount on to the overall cost (if you go for a reputable brand of treatment and stain). The benefit of the item coming as a kit is that you can treat all the tongue and groove edges thoroughly, to reduce the chances of decay and rot. I wasn't overly impressed with the quality of timber. I did buy online so wasn't able to look through the pack. The timber had a lot of knots, splits and faults in it. One of the slats was badly warped (curved width and length so the tongue and groove didn't fit together) and so the gate required the aid of a sash clamp to put it together. The overall finish of the curve wasn't great. I had to sand down the top of the gate as there was a rough edge to it from where it had gone through the mills. It might have been nice if it had been finished off properly. I would suggest buying a set of good quality wood screws or nails. The set of screws that comes with the kit are basic in quality and are the kind that once they have been used they wont come out again as the heads will be shredded. I personally want to be able to repair the gate if required; not buy a new one so I used a known brand. If you aren't worried about servicing parts of the gate then this shouldn't be a problem. The final point is that you will require a skillsaw once you have built the gate. The kit enables you to have either a curved or flat top gate. Trimming off wood from the bottom or removing the curved top. The easiest way to get a good finish (I found) is with a tool such as a skillsaw. All in all if you are on a budget be aware that you might need to purchase additional items in order to make a lasting, functional product and the wood might not be up to expectation."
