Garden canopies are one of those great ideas which can be used for many different things. They are often made from a piece of waterproof type fabric such as canvas. They are fitted to an outdoor section of a building like a large awning or cover. They can be home made with either canvas, a tarpaulin or drop cloth with the use of tent poles for adjustment.
This idea is very useful for those who like to entertain in an outdoor setting especially in the back yard where the garden is. It can help keep the sun off the entertaining area on a hot day, or if it happens to come in rainy when the guests are already settled comfortably.
It is also great for those who might like to spend a lazy afternoon or even morning out in the open air relaxing in the shade with a cool drink in the company of friends. They are also useful for someone who loves to garden and needs a place to put those plants that do not like too much sun or rain. This can be a lovely place to have a cup of tea or coffee amongst those well looked after plants.
Pre schools and child day care centers may find them useful for covering some of the outdoor areas where the children have play time. They may be of use at small schools for shade for the children during play time or lunch hour recess times, especially those places that do not have much shade. They are probably suitable wherever there is a need to expand on shade or protection from rain where children can be put to play outdoors.
Some garden canopies are small enough to be able to move around the garden area wherever they are needed for shade. These could also be used to cover children play areas in the backyard such as over a sandpit. The garden canopy is only limited by the imagination of those who own one, and those who are thinking of owning one to where it can be used.
