If you want to separate your outdoor space from your driveway or a street but you want to maintain accessibility, consider a gated arbor.

Wrought Iron Garden Mirror Gate

While this may not look like much to the naked eye, it is actually a long mirror attached to a wall in which an applied lead design is made to resemble a wrought iron gate. What you see in the mirror is a reflection of the garden IN FRONT of the mirror, not a gate, in which you are looking through to see the garden. I have always wanted to do this.

Backyard Landscaping Ideas

Make sure you have a sturdy, escape-proof fence that is tall enough to keep your dog from jumping over. Also, make sure gates can be locked. Never leave your dog unattended for long periods of time. Here, a vinyl, gnaw-proof picket fence keeps Fido confined when needed.
