Free standing pergola with polycarbonate roof panels to keep out the rain and to provide shade: BABE, this is my favorite one so far, make it to fit the cement, then towards the pool, have an open sky top so grill smoke can escape
Using planters, fence posts, buckets, quick Crete, grommet kit and hooks. We needed more shade so decided to make this. Still need some plants in our pots but Im super happy with the results! Better then an umbrella. Back yard project.
