Shade structures are excellent for areas that do not have tree protection from the sun. They can be made from wood or metal, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Read on to learn more about the 4 most popular shade structures and how they can best serve your yard.

Gazebos (Standalone Shade Structures)

Gazebos are standalone shade structures that are perfect for gardens and playgrounds. Because most gazebos are round or square, they are best suited for areas that have a similar width and length, although long gazebos work well for undercover eating areas. Gazebos usually have a permanent covered roof and are generally hard-wearing. With proper care, gazebos will last for decades. Because they tend to be more ornate than other shade structures, gazebos are great for bandstands or elegant backdrops for photoshoots and weddings.

Shade Shelters (Commercial Shade Structures)

Shade shelters, or commercial shade structures, are great for spaces in between other structures. They take up less room than a gazebo and can be installed with a retractable roof, while the majority of gazebos do not have this feature. Some shade shelters may require replacing with time. Non-fixed shade shelters can be stored seasonally and are perfect for golf courses, events, and fundraisers. Learn more about the difference between a gazebo and a shade shelter.

Playground & Picnic Covers (Park Shade Structures)

Playground covers protect playing children from burns, and protect playground equipment from weather damage. They can be built to retract and are also versatile for the addition of more play equipment. Picnic covers also work well for family or community meals. They protect diners rain or shine, and can be built with sturdy support. Learn more about how to use a shade shelter for community events.

Shade structures come in a variety of sizes and styles, and can even be custom made! Learn more about what we do or contact us to ask a question or get a quote on your own custom shade structure.
