These ornamental driveway gates were designed & built by JDR Metal Art for one of our Atlanta, Georgia customers. It features a 20′ wide x 8′ tall metal oak tree along with a mare and foal accenting each side of the gate.
We worked with the NE Fence Company who handled the installation of the gates and gate openers. As you can see, they did a fantastic job of putting it all together!

Looking for a Custom Ornamental Gate Design for an Atlanta Home?
We make our designs from scratch using our customers ideas. Here’s a dual swing Atlanta driveway gate we completed to customer specs in 2014. And here’s a set of Atlanta metal gates we completed in 2015. Once we have the basic measurements of your driveway entrance and the general design theme then we are able to put together a drawing of the gate frame and a rough draft to establish the focal points of the design. Then we are able to add onto, revise, rearrange and otherwise modify the design until it looks exactly how you want it. Once the design is finalized we are ready to begin building your gate!
This St. Louis project that we are currently working on at JDR Metal Art is going to be a wrought iron oak tree driveway gate that will be mounted between two stone columns. We have coordinated measurements with the property owner to make sure the gate will fit well at its final destination.
This 5×12′ plate of 3/16″ thick steel has been traced with the outline that we will be using to make the tree. The trunk will be extended by splicing it to the rest of the tree with another piece of plate cut from the leftover material.
After a few hours of cutting..close to the halfway point with the tree.
Fitting the outside frame together on the fabricating table. Each end of the gate needs to be 4’6″ tall so as to stay below the capstone on the column…while the center slopes down to 4’0″ tall.
Sparks fly as a MIG welder is used to superheat the metals for joining. The leafs become permanently attached to the branches of the tree by using this tool much like a hot glue gun.
Cloud of welding fumes lit up by the blue welding arc (above) while the picture below shows the cooling molten metal on a steel leaf after it has just been joined to a branch.
A coat of red primer helps the finish coat adhere better to the gate.
The topcoat is an oil rubbed bronze paint from Rustoleum.
The leaves are quite detailed and authentic looking.
