H. I'm Christopher Grubb, and today we're going to talk about creative ways to create shade on a patio. We all enjoy the patio for entertaining, to lounge, but sometimes there's a challenge because of the sunlight to truly enjoy it. We all know about using umbrellas, but I've got a really creative idea that is a consideration that will almost create a room and protect you from the shade. One of my favorite things to do when you have a larger space, is to actually have fabric slide out and protect this whole area. In this patio, we used airplane cables. It's very easy to do it. It anchors into the house and the other surface and you have a distance that, with a rod, you simply slide out the fabric and it protects the area. They can be done in different segments as well so, if you need a smaller area covered, you don't have to have the entire thing shaded.
