Shade Sails: An Inexpensive Alternative
Updated: May 23, 2021
My husband and I have been talking about building a gazebo for a few years now. But since the cost of wood has gone up exponentially during the pandemic, we decided to look for an alternative. Tyler suggested a shade sail; after googling the idea, I agreed.
We opted for the AsterOutdoor Sun Shade Sail Rectangle 10' x 13' UV Block Canopy in the color Cream (the color is more of a soft yellow than a cream), purchased from Amazon. This company offers many different sizes, shapes and colors. The 10’ by 13’ sail was 60$ before tax. The quality isn't fantastic, but it does the job and adds coziness to the area.
Here are other affordable shade sails:
16' X 16' X 22.6' 190 GSM White Right Triangle Sun Shade Sail from Wayfair.ca
20' x 16' Rectangle Shade Sail from Wayfair.ca
You can find them at Walmart.ca as well.
