Stylish sun canopies for your garden

"What a difference it has made in cooling down our deck area from the hot afternoon sun."

"Works and looks great. This looks good and gets lots of compliments."

"The sails look fantastic. They are very high quality. They do a wonderful job of keeping temperatures more comfortable and lessening glare. "

"Excellent product. I bought one last year and decided to add a second one this year for more shade."

"I had my doubts about the quality because of the low price, but I couldn't be more pleased. Even the included hardware was surprisingly far nicer than expected."

Why choose Shade Sails?

We're getting shade sails for our garden this summer because we love being outside but we're a fair-skinned family. My older son is a redhead. We worry about the kids getting too much sun, and we don't really enjoy being out in the powerful sun either.

We're putting shade sales up over the kids' sandbox area so they have somewhere to play and keep out of the sun. We're also looking at creating a shaded patio area so the adults have somewhere to shelter from the sun too.

Portable Shade Sail

You can even have a Shade Sail to take with you when you are out and about. Great for the beach, park and outdoor festivals and shows.
