Am I allowed to take down a gate at my rental & not put up another one?

The property was rented out with a gate across the driveway; however, the gate is getting old & a new one needs to be installed. This will cost a lot of money I don't have, plus I'm having trouble with the tenant allowing access into the backyard. It doesn't say anything in the rental agreement... show more The property was rented out with a gate across the driveway; however, the gate is getting old & a new one needs to be installed.

It doesn't say anything in the rental agreement about the place including a gate.
Update: The tenants are on a month to month lease.
