Someone who understands!

BEST 1st. post I've read in a long time!

I have a small 2BR CYV that is 9 years old. I only open my gate about 3 times a year. As you see that hedge, which started out small holly bushes, need to be trimmed about 3 times a year and then I fill up the brown paper bags and move them to the driveway for pickup. My neighbor did ask once a couple of months ago to let the exterminator in my backyard to treat his home for termites. So the gate has been open about 4 times in the past 12 months. Otherwise I keep a lock on the gate as do most of my neighbors. I almost forgot, I did power-wash the patio a few months ago. I do that about every other year and it makes a big difference, especially around downspouts.

Maybe the neighbor put a gate in the white fence so they could access that side of their house?
If you’re on corner lot and houses are on your left (facing) most time you would have two gates because there no house on the street side if you’re house in first on the block and not the last house on the block. I am the last house on my block and I have I gate cause I have house on my right. The guy at the other end of the block has two gates cause his house at the beginning with no house on his right. So, yes some have two gates. My villa 15 year old don’t know how they are designed now?

In the first diagram, house "A" has two gates.
