Help on garden gate design
I have been thinking about various ways of designing the gate which will be the entrance to my backyeard... and the first thing people will see is the pond. So, I want to give the peope a "hint" that they are entering something which has a japanese inspiration. ANd I also want this to affect the gate itself. So, I have in paint created a rough sketch on what I planned to build. I definetly want it with a door, so the moon gates are out of the question...

And make any suggestions and alterations you desire to (in your opinion) make it more like it would belong to a japanese garden. I have thought about making the walls with bamboo, but since the house and all its walls are "western style" it would be too much of a distraction.
And both the walls and the gate has a tiled roof which allow water to flow away.
I would be happy if you perhaps also can provide links to pages with pictures of similar garden gates...
