It doesn't happen very often, but we sometimes have to revisit a project. This time, we had to tweak the PVC pipe gate due to damage it sustained.
With few exceptions, there are very few unannounced visitors to Steph's backyard, but recently there have been a few neighbors back there. It was nothing bad, they had come into the yard to look for their cat. Unfortunately, the gate was broken in the process. You see, the gate opens inward, but the neighbors pulled it out causing damage. The damage was extensive enough that we had to take it down to make repairs.
We are hopeful that the new repairs will prevent any further damage. In hindsight, we realized we should have used the third hinge from the beginning and should have used screws on all the connections. The water collection was a surprise, so we would never have thought to put those in originally.
