The back of my house gets limited shade in the summer months, and with this heat wave I have been looking into options for shading the lounge area. I think we will use a shade sail as a temporary option, but would love to have something more structural. In the meantime I will draw inspiration from these great shady areas.

|Arbors provide wonderful shade and structure with less time to mature like the trees.
Planting a climbing wisteria will also provide color.

|I love how modern this arbor feels, white and streamlined. The wide top grid will not provide enough shade in my yard, but if I add shade sails between would be perfect.
