You still could make a corner to support the gate by cutting back into the parking lot 2-4ft but then you kind of lose that space. That would support your gate on a corner.

Can you snap some close ups of those hinge's? the last time I had to span a good distance, local hardware stores didn't sell anything that heavy. I had found a guy/blacksmith and he forged me some really heavy duty hinge's.

I am thinking that all you are missing now is a moat and a draw bridge, lol.

I will try to snap a pick tomorow morning when the fix it guys go out. The hinges are really designed to use a 5/8" x 4 inch U-bolt around a 4 inch steel pole. they look about 3/16" thick. they have teeth on the inside to grip the pole. I will let that side dig into the oak posts.

Northern tool has some great wheel assist for gates. They work great. You install them at the opposite side from the hinges at the bottom of the gate.

That is probably the nicest fence I have ever seen, makes me feel embarassed about mine. Went cheap on mine at home, neighbor was tired of looking at the dog **** in my yard, so went half in on a fence, and they wanted there half to be as cheap as possible lol.

got back from vacation number 1 and had some time to stain fence, used 25 gallons of stain and adds 625 to cost of fence. but it now matches barn building and looks great. hopefully should add some life to fence as well. 2 photos-
