The country gate experts Blackwood Country Gates owner and timber craftsman Ian Lamshed has a passion for making handcrafted gates including wooden gates, farm gates, Tudor gates and country gates. Since founding the company at his Bellarine Peninsula home, he’s immersed himself in the work he loves, creating gates out of material that inspires him. But that’s not the end of the story. Using tools including blacksmith staples the hammer and anvil, he then makes accompanying hinges and gate hardware to fit his wooden or steel masterpieces. Blackwood Country Gates builds timber gates to last for years and crafts them from a wide selection of quality wood. While the gates fulfil a practical purpose, they are also beautiful objects in their own right. They can make a statement as driveway gates or add appeal as wooden garden gates. The Australian-based company started as a farm fencing business more than a quarter of a century ago. It has evolved steadily since then and the primary focus is now on creating gates, hinges and accompanying gate hardware. The gentle hills, water views and rural outlook of the surrounding countryside and farmland motivates Ian to craft gates that are true to the environment. They are durable, unpretentious, charming and full of character. If you are seeking a wooden gate – from a humble farm gate to garden gates – then contact Blackwood Country Gates for information. Our building repertoire also includes garden furniture, fences and horse stables.
