Shade sails are a way of providing comfortable shade in modern landscapes. Each sail is a strip of fabric that’s been specially-designed to withstand an incredible amount of pressure. Each sail is mounted to steel posts and tightened so it won’t flap or move even in high wind speeds.

When to choose a shade sail

Placement and design

Start the process by running string along the areas where you’re considering a shade sail, to see where the shadow falls. This way, you can make sure the shade sails will cast shade on the patio or window areas that are currently too hot.

It’s good to have about 4-6’ of difference between one side of the shade sail and the other. This allows the sail to shed the wind. In addition, if you’re using more than one sail, having a bigger height difference between each one looks more modern.
