The Q&A Archives: Patio

Question: We have a large slab of concret off our yard and leading out toward our garden. We would like to put up a shaded fixture so we can sit outside and watch our garden, but how and what can we use on the concret that can give us shade?

Answer: There are many options you could consider: large retractable awnings that hang suspended from the side of the house; sun umbrellas can be placed in stands; you could plant a shade tree to the side of the patio. You might consider adding a lattice work "ceiling" to your patio as well. I hope this gives you some ideas.
