Garden Shade Sail

Shade Sails

Shade sails are a really popular way of quickly creating somewhere in your outdoor space that you can shade from the sun when you have no trees or other ways of getting shade.

Tensioned shade structures are brilliant for providing shading over patios and decking, swimming pools, barbeques, bars, entertaining spaces and seating areas.

Not only will they make shade to get out of the sun, sails can help provide an undercover area from rain! It’s not always cold when it’s raining so you can still be outside, but rain can sure spoil it for you if you are entertaining outdoors and you get caught out by a shower.

They are also useful for making shaded outdoor play areas for children to reduce the potential for sunburn while still enabling them to play outside.

Designing with Shade Sails

Make all kinds of designs using one shade sail or by combining many sails. They can be overlapped so several can be used to cover a larger area, or placed at angles, and twisted. Small or large you can use them to provide shelter outside doorways and windows, or stretch them out across larger areas for shelter or architectural style effect.

If you can’t find something to suit from the ready-made market, think about getting sails custom made especially to suit you, they can be made in different fabric shapes too!

Sail Shapes and Colors

Either pre made or custom designed different shapes such as triangles, squares, and rectangles means you can make something to fit in with any outdoor area.

A lot of different colours to choose from, whether you want sails to blend into the surroundings naturally or stand out with a splash of bright colour to set off your plants and flowers.

Fabric and Fixing

Flexible UV resistant fabric of high density tensioned with stainless steel cables to pull the sails taut between structures or purpose made supports. The tautness of the fabric is what allows them to withstand windy conditions.

Shade sails are an affordable and easy way to create shade in a garden or outdoor space. According to an article on The Garden Glove, installing shade sails is as easy as making sure you have strong supports, such as the side of a building or a post. The article also notes that these patio shade sails require a lot of tension to get them to stretch tight enough so that they look right and don’t flap around in the wind.

To create a shaded garden using shade sails, you can install them over an outdoor seating area, a patio, or even a pool or hot tub. A FreshPatio article notes that shade sails can also be used to transform a driveway into a carport. When installing shade sails for a garden, it is important to choose a location that receives enough sunlight for the plants to thrive.

Overall, shade sails are a great option for creating a shaded garden or outdoor space that is both functional and visually appealing.
