This week I bought a “sail Canopy” from the web to try as a sun screen in my garden.
I was going to have it between the posts of my pergola.
I have often thought of putting one in my garden designs.
I am glad that I have tried it out first.
The material was far too flimsy.
The attachments and ropes were inadequate.
It was not a strong structure.
I am going to return it.
If you do think of putting one in your garden here are some guidelines.
Purchase one from a well known sail manufacturer.
The material will be strong.
Fittings must be able to take tensile strength.
Pergolas are not a good anchor point.
A house wall probably would be.
These are not quick solutions for shade in the garden.
