If you’re looking for that bit of extra shade for your patio or garden, sun shade sails are an affordable and easy way to get that additional cover.

Use them to protect your guests as they relax on the deck or in the pool, or to protect your car or lawn. Sun shade sails will have you garden party ready in no time, ready to cook up something delicious for your family and friends.

1. Shade & Beyond Sand Color Triangle Sun Shade Sail

Made with high-quality UV protected polyethylene fabric, this sun shade sail is designed to protect you and your family as well as your patio. The material is also breathable, as it allows rain water to pass through, so pools of water won’t collect, building up pressure and eventually causing tears. The breathability also allows light breezes to pass through, so you can keep cool and out of the heat of the summer sun.
