The summer months are upon us and we are all trying to find ways to beat the summer heat.
Backyard BBQ’s and summer outdoor activities are a common way to spend the long heat filled days. Making sure everyone stays cool and covered is important when spending time in your outdoor space. Here are some great ways to add shade to your backyard and keep the summer heat at bay.
If you have a smaller space that still requires some respite from the heat you may want to consider an umbrella. Umbrellas are great for any space, but if your area is on the smaller side the mobility of an umbrella is fantastic. Easily moved for the changing of sun exposure and easily taken down for easy storage. Umbrellas can provide a great shade option.
If you have a bit more space to work with, add shade to your backyard with a tent. Tents are great for providing a covered environment by a swimming pool or a place to beat the heat while you eat your BBQ meal. They come in many different styles and sizes, which make it easy to accommodate your outdoor area. Tents also provide a great area to place your patio furniture under and enjoy meals with family and friends without feeling overwhelmed by the sun.
If you are looking to add shade to your backyard, larger scale pavilions are fantastic. Hosting larger numbers of guests or if your backyard can accommodate a pavilion this addition is a lifesaver. A pavilion can easily provide an added outdoor living area to your summer oasis. Pavilions are able to accommodate a much larger shaded area that can be used for many different purposes during the summer months.
A great addition to a tent, pavilion or a patio are water misters placed around the perimeter of your shady space. Misters are a great way of cooling down your backyard environment. Providing a relaxing escape from the hot summer sun and making sure everyone feels hydrated.
Making sure your outdoor area is shaded and comfortable is important. The summer sun can sometimes be deceiving. Providing shade and staying hydrated is an absolute must this summer.
