This link is of creative shade ideas for your yard. The photo is one of my favorites. I heard from a neighbor that you do not need permits to build create this sunshade, because the canvas can be removed from the anchors. It looks so creative and pretty!
This is a cool idea for an outdoor patio, porch, or deck. You can roll them down for privacy or when the sun is shining right in. It would look great if they were all closed at night and there was seating and soft lighting.
