Hello there I own my own home but don't want to drill to put in gates, I'm not 100% sure on landscaping and future changes so don't want anything fixed just yet. Issue being security is very important to me, I do find people often go round the back of my house without permission. For the last 5 years I have had mouldy old pallets blocking the sides of the house, I really want to get rid of these as look ugly and hard for me to get around. Are there any no drill options open to me? I need more of a visual barrier really thats enough to stop people as apposed to fort knox. Are there push/tension fit gates like child stair gates, or could I stick/glue a gate on and remove after? Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to think of a solution for you but I'm not quite sure which of your priorities come highest . If it is security then I can't see how anything push fit will deter anyone . It doesn't take much effort to kick those things off . I've done it to many a baby gate . If it is a visual barrier then maybe a roll of that wicker or willow stuff you can get from garden centres . If mouldy old pallets aren't stopping people getting into your back garden and that is your priority , can't see that as being much of an obstacle . I think you need to decide whether it is security or a visual barrier you want because if it is security I think you will have to get the drill out

Use met post spikes to but in wooden fence posts and attach your gate to them

Just want a basic barrier, doen't need to be secure. Its a mental/human nature thing, if a house has no gate or anything on the sides people think they can just walk around the back, put a basic gate in or pallets and people tend to not go back there, they are having to open or move a barrier and gain access to your space, I have seen you can get push fit stair gates for as little as £15 maybe one of these but it would go rusty in a second, wood would rot and want to avoid wood if possible, would love like a heavy duty plastic one but no one makes stair gates in plastic. Wish someone made push fit gaden gates. I would happily put a bamboo screen up but I need to get round the house often so need a gate or easy move barrier, I'm trying to avoid wood and such due to a mould allergy and like plastic/metal which can be wiped down.

Not a lot of option for off the shelf. Something like the pic below where you put the fence parts down the side of the house leaving the supported gate at the end.

The more bespoke option would be to get a fabricator to weld a 3d freestanding box section and mount a gate onto it.

Like that if only you could get the gate stand alone. If you type 'arch with gate' into amazon you can get very crappy cheap free standing things, not sure how long these will last, and if I add a couple paving slabs the hold it down would work? The two walls I have either side, is a house wall, and a solid slate rock face, I could try and glue something with 'no nails' to both walls and tie arch to these attachments same goes for the gate you picture.

Any particular reason why you don't want to drill fixings into wall/house?

Because within 6 months one of the walls in question (slate bedrock) will be dug out, and the gate will need to be in a different place, this is just temp

I've got something that might do the trick at the end of the passage down the side of my house . I use it to hide the dustbin . Can't for the life of me remember what it is called but it came from Ikea . It is basically a screen like arrangement made of metal which is made up of plant pot holders . It hinges in the middle so you can use it as a kind of gate but to look at it you would think it was solid . It cost about £20 and looks quite decorative . Would that fit the bill ?

sounds good did you buy it recently? and therefore they may still sell it?

I've just had a look on their website and I can't see it but it is from the socker range . Check out socker plant stand on Google images . I bought mine this summer so they might still do it

Use met post spikes to but in wooden fence posts and attach your gate to them
Ground is solid stone :(
You can get met posts that bolt into the ground, so you'd only need to drill 4 holes for each post in the stone

It's easy, you simply mark the holes, drill the holes, put in anchor bolts, place the base and then tighten the nuts. Put a fence post in the met post and tighten it up, then hang your gates on the fence posts
