    A "green gate" using a planter on wheels made out of a galvanized horse trough. It can roll open and shut. Brilliant idea!

    rolling garden gate. Galvanized horse trough filled with soil and planted with arborvitaes. The trough measures 2 feet high and deep and 8 feet long and cost about $140. To move it, Jon built a wooden brace for the bottom and attached an old piano dolly he had in his basement.

    Green Gate - A living gate at the end of the driveway. Rolls open to let you in and rolls closed for privacy. This structure started with a galvanized horse trough filled with soil and planted with arborvitaes. The trough measures 2 feet high and deep and 8 feet long. To move it you need a wooden brace for the bottom and it is attached to an old piano. Using this planter allowed the owners to circumvent a neighborhood rule that says fences and gates can’t be taller than 6 feet.
