Easy Shade Strategies For Your Outdoor Living Space

Increase your outdoor living time by adding shade to your garden. Additional shades aid in allowing your outdoor living space to become more comfortable and protect you from the sun’s harsh rays. The ceiling plane is generally the most overlooked element in landscape design. Whether you want a solid, transparent, large, or small, a ceiling plane will add more sense of personal privacy. How will you add shade to your outdoor living space?


Nothing beats vine over a pergola. Not only does it add shade, it is also aesthetically pleasing. The most common vine is the Evergreen clematis. This vine has beautiful, shiny, dark green, and good-smelling leaves that lasts all throughout the year. Another common vine is the Wisteria which has trunks that are thick and strong over time, which easily tears down roof gutters and deck railings.


The best thing about canopies is that you can place them only temporarily. Having a party this weekend? Go put up your canopy. It gives an intimate feel for you and your guests.


Putting up a large umbrella is probably the easiest way to enhance the shade of your outdoor living space. Don’t be afraid which umbrella to use because there are variety of styles that would complement the area. You can also pick colors that sets the tone.


Another wonderful way to put up a temporary shade in your outdoor living space is a shade sail. It is easy to attach and remove them from a free-standing post. Also, this gives a more lively look to your outdoor living area.


You can string up a canvas shade to your outdoor space. You can use fabric, bamboo, or shade cloth – it just depends on your mood.
