I think people should make sure that their gates and latches are in proper working order, I have so many yards where the gates are all twisted, the latches are stiff/stuck or broken and you have to basically slam the gate to get the latch to clip down or reach over and push it down, I have one where I have to stand on my mower to open and close the gate, like wtf. Then you tell people and they are like you just have to wiggle it or something silly. They don't seem to understand the frustration that comes with these gates. I realize that many homeowners don't even use their gate so they have no idea how bad it may be, they come in and out of a sliding door or something and never actually walk around their own property. I think all gates should have those springs that automatically pull it shut and hold it in place, I know they are a pain when you try to get a mower through because they are continuously closing on you, but a stick usually keeps them open and then atleast they shut behind you. Sorry to rant, man I hate gates. About 95% of my properties have them and only about 50% are what I would call a proper functioning gates. Lol.
