Five things to do under a garden shade sail

So, you’ve made the decision and opted to install one of our shade sails. However, have you thought about what you’re actually going to do in the lovely shaded spot that will soon be a part of your garden? We’ve compiled a short list of suggestions below.

Read a good book 

Is there a better way to spend a warm day than relaxing in the shade with a good book? Find yourself a comfy chair, make a cold drink and prepare to lose yourself in the pages of one of your favourite reads.

Eat a meal

One of the best things about summer is that it allows us to eat outside and for some strange reason food always seems to taste better in the open air. Whether it’s a quick breakfast, spot of lunch, or just a refreshing cup of tea, sitting under a shade sail is the ideal place to indulge yourself.

Play a game

Be it chess, Monopoly or even snakes and ladders, nothing beats a good old fashioned board game. Why not challenge a friend or relative to a game out in the garden?


Working might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of uses for a garden sun shade, but you’d be surprised at how much easier it feels out in the fresh air instead of being cooped up in a stuffy office.

Sit back and relax

While all of the things mentioned above are a great way to spend time in the shade, perhaps the best thing to do is nothing at all. What could be better than wiling away an hour or two of a hot day just relaxing with your thoughts and maybe even having a little snooze?

Here at Shaded Nation we think a garden shade sail is a fine addition to any home. Not only will it make the place look great, it could boost the value of your property as well. We have a variety of shapes, sizes and colours for you to choose from and can even provide a bespoke design if that’s what you’d prefer.
