Once again, Scarecrow made another request for shade.
Some star pickets/post (4, in this case)
2" Ag Polypipe
Hacksaw to cut pipe
Don't forget to click on the piccies for a closer look.
Select your site. This was an area that had a willow tree providing shade where Scarecrow did gardeny things.
Unfortunately the wind destroyed it one day. Hence the request.
Wack in the pickets.
Cut your pipe to length and wack them onto the posts.
The 2" pipe slides right over the top.
In this case the two polypipes are 4 metres long and the gap is approximately 3 metres.
This is a more-than-adequate span for here.
Cover with shadecloth. This is 70% shade.
Add a table and bench and do your gardeny things.
In the near future I am planning on using the same technique to build a small carport to provide shade to our 3 vehicles
