Different types of gate,Gate cabin and compound wall
A compound wall serves to demarcate the site, protect one's property, ensure privacy and enhance aesthetic appeal. The most important reason for having a fence is security. Not only does a fence prevent encroaches from moving into your property but also effectively restricts entry into your space. Most city houses are independent units and therefore invariably have their compound walls.
A gate or gateway is a point of entry to a space enclosed by walls, or a moderately sized opening in some sort of fence. Gates may prevent or control the entry or exit of individuals, or they may be merely decorative. Other terms for gate include yett and port. The word derives from the old Norse "gata", meaning road or path, and originally referred to the gap in the wall or fence, rather than the barrier which closed it.
