Hi everyone, im putting in a small front yard gate and am in need of some clever ideas on latches. The gate will be right against some thick ivy that I dont own, and dont want to run the risk of doing any serious damage by doing some heavy cutting and putting in a post with a classic gate latch. My idea is to drive a rod of some sort into the ground deep enough so that its really sturdy and only sticks up about 5" or so just enough so that the bottom of the gate can catch it an latch onto it. Hopefully you can see in my rough illustration what I mean.

Anyone aware of any latches that can achieve this idea? Im invisioning a spring latch that I can easily slide open with my foot....
