To give a bare back garden a focal point, create an outdoor lounge area with basic gravel. A simple white sunsail over head pulls everything together. A painted tree stump in a white lacquer creates a unique textural table. >> pretty space for summer!
We built this awning off of the barn we live out of in the summer time. Its very simple and very cheap to make AND it works very well. If you want to put up a quick and easy shade awning, this basic design can be adapted to work in many situations.
