Build and Attach the Gate
Frame the gate using 2x4 pressure-treated wood. Use a 45-degree miter cut to make two 4' pieces for the uprights, and two 32" pieces for the top and the bottom. Once the frame is assembled, use deck screws to add a diagonal piece of wood from the bottom right to the top left inside the frame (Image 1).
Attach the fencing material to the outside of the frame using the staple gun. Then add two 35-3/4" pieces of 1x6 material at the top and bottom of the outside of the gate, to match the rest of the fence (Image 2). The extra 3-3/4" of overhang on the top and bottom of the 1x6 will act as a stop for the gate.
Attach hinges and a latch using the hardware and instructions provided by the manufacturer and attach the gate to the 17' section of fence.
