The corten steel entry gate to the house and garden is linked to a hidden wire fence that keeps marauding rabbits from devastating the planting inside. Rodents will gnaw some cactus to death if not protected. This also provides increased security when all can be locked up tight. The double Dutch gate allows views through the top half for glimpses of vivid golden barrel cactus beyond. It's a great way to make an entry visually compelling as visitors approach so they'll naturally want to see more color beyond. The bottom door is kept closed to keep pets inside and prevent native ground squirrels or packrats from entering here. This gateway also demonstrates still more Dreese-Williams unorthodox design with an overhead decked out in elk antlers.
