Gates becoming more commonplace

According to a recent report in the Wall Street Journal, more and more consumers are installing gates on their properties. They're doing it for both security and privacy reasons.

Are you noticing this in your communities? Are your customers seeking homes with gates pre-installed, or are you noticing more gates going up?

And what do you think the impact of this trend will be on neighborhoods? Gates can surely give the individual homeowner a deeper sense of security, but does it discourage trust between neighbors?
