Driveway gates increase the security and value of your Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Westside home.

We specialize in electric-motorized driveway gates. With over 30 years of experience Harwell Design installs some of the best in the city.

Modern design is super popular here in Los Angeles, Venice Beach and Santa Monica area and the modern aesthetic is what most of our electric-motorized installations consist of.  

All of our automatic driveway gate frames are constructed out of steel, so it's built to last. In beach communities, wood-framed gates tend to warp and twist, while steel framed driveway gates remain far more durable.

We also build craftsman style, arched top and custom stain finishes, to add a unique element to the wood. Most of our Los Angeles Driveway Gate designs allow for a built in pedestrian entry as well.
