How to Create Shade in Your Backyard

July 18, 2019


Whether your backyard is big or small, it can sometimes seem like a struggle
to find shade during the summer — especially if your backyard is
completely bare. If you’re looking for some
ways to beat the heat and enjoy the comfort of your property, here are some
ways to create shade with ease:

Purchase an Umbrella

You might have seen this suggestion coming, but it’s true —
a gigantic umbrella will really help make a difference. Whether you’re
purchasing one for the center of your outdoor dining table or you’re
looking into a free-standing model that can be placed anywhere, umbrellas
are still one of the best means of blocking out those harmful rays and
keeping you cool all season long.

Plant Trees

While you might not be able to see results instantly, it is truly the most
helpful of solutions. Trees are an excellent way to not only cast shade,
but they can also add character and depth to any yard. Speaking of the
phrase “long-term,” you’ll want to carefully plan out
where you’ll plant each tree since roots can continue to grow and
cause extensive damage to pipes that are below the ground. Before planting,
it’s best to call 811; they’ll be able to tell you which areas
you should avoid placing a tree on your property!

Build a Gazebo

Another excellent way to bring some shade to your backyard is to have a
gazebo built. These outdoor structures not only fit perfectly in any space
they’re implemented in, but they will also make for a beautiful
spot to relax, unwind, and hold a conversation. The best part about a
gazebo? You can have them constructed to match your home — which
makes for the perfect custom accessory for your backyard!
