Driveway Gates by JDR Metal Art

We love building artistic driveway gates which feature a wide variety of wildlife animals. All of our wildlife themed decorative driveway gates are plasma cut by hand from either steel or aluminum and can be made to custom fit any driveway size. Designs can be rearranged and semi-customized for your personalized driveway gate so if you want to incorporate parts of different gates you like into something entirely new then contact us and we can design it for you!

 Illinois Wildlife Driveway Gates

Corten Steel Deer Gate

Illinois artist metal entry gates with deer and fox silhouettes plasma cut by JDR Metal Art.

This 20′ dual swing deer gate was designed to rust to a fine purple patina. Mounted to local stone columns, it is made from Corten weathering steel and will develop a beautiful rust patina over time until eventually the rust achieves its final look; a slightly purple-hued rustic finish that seals itself off from further rusting.

We installed these dual swing gates at a private hunting reserve in Cuba, Illinois.

For openers to install Apollo model 3500/3600 driveway gate openers along with an automatic exit wand and a wireless intercom/keypad system. The weather was uncooperative with lots of rain, high wind, and then snow but we survived and this picture was taken and sent to us the next spring by Jeff Martin, landscape architect for this project which now features native prairie grass and wildflowers along each side of the driveway.

Louisiana Wildlife Themed Estate Gates

Bear & Deer Driveway Gates

Driveway Gate Bear Deer Bear Paw Ranch Missouri plasma cut by JDR Metal Art

The bear depicted on these plasma cut ranch gates happens to be “Gentle Ben” of TV fame in the 1960’s…now memorialized in steel making up the driveway gate at Bear Paw Ranch in St. James, Missouri where Gentle Ben was born and raised. The gate was custom designed and fabricated for the gentleman who now owns the ranch. Our client’s son’s wedding was coming up soon and the project was time critical. We were able to get the gate delivered to him to be installed with a couple days to spare before the wedding. A whitetail deer is featured on the other half of the gate. A truly one-of-a-kind design with all design rights privately held by gate owner.

Bear Themed Iron Gates

This 16′ bear-themed entry gate was built for a fun couple who spend their time between Florida and their family farm, the Mountain View Estate, in the beautiful Adirondacks in upstate New York. We had the gates powder coated with zinc rich primer for corrosion control with  a flat bronze topcoat. We delivered the gates from Columbus, Ohio to New York and installed them there along with an Estate Swing 1000D automatic opener package.
