Quick delivery. Less than £200 pounds for a 3m awning, very good value. Well made and simple to install with basic diy skills.

Have ordered from Primrose before and was just as happy with my purchase this time. Very pleased with my sail shades and delivery.
Will definitely use Primrose again and have already recommended it to friends.

Garden Shade FAQs

  • How to create shade in the garden?

    Creating shade in your garden can provide a cool and comfortable retreat from the hot sun's rays. From patio awnings to parasols or sail shades, discover the best garden shade solution for you with our wide range.

    Awnings: Retractable awnings are an attractive addition to any home or garden. Primrose Awnings will protect you whatever the weather with our hgih quality waterproof fabrics. Mount your awning onto the side of your house or a reliable wall to start enjoying its benefits and extending your living area.

    Verandas: Shelter in all seasons with a luxury veranda, covering your furniture come rain or shine from dawn til dusk. With controllable elements such as a louvered shuttered roof, open the louvres when you want to soak in the sun. Featuring sturdy aluminium frames reinforced with polycarbonate sheets, our modern verandas are available in a range of exquisite colours and sizes to fit your needs.

    Pergolas: These structures feature open frameworks that can support climbing plants like vines, adding both shade and beauty to your outdoor space. Consider positioning them over seating areas, walkways, or dining spaces.

    Shade Sails: Shade sails are large pieces of fabric stretched tightly between posts or structures to create shade. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, allowing you to customise your garden design. Install them over patios, pool areas, or anywhere you need temporary shade. Ensure the sails are properly tensioned and securely anchored for stability and safety.

    Gazebos: Gazebos are freestanding structures that provide a sheltered area in your garden. They typically have solid roofs and open sides, offering a combination of shade and ventilation. Customize them with curtains or blinds for added privacy and shade control.

    Parasols: For a more portable shade solution, parasols are excellent options. These can be easily moved and adjusted according to the sun's position. Look for sturdy umbrellas with UV-resistant fabric and a wide canopy for maximum coverage. They work well for smaller spaces like balconies, small patios, or as an addition to existing seating areas.

    Canopies: If you're looking for some shelter for your front porch or back door, canopies will be a great option for you. Create some overhead shelter with our selection of small and specialised door canopies.

    Plants and Trees can also be used to add shade to your garden, just be sure to check their preferred light requirements, and growing habit before you plant. 

    Remember, it's important to consider the orientation of your garden, the path of the sun, and your specific needs when deciding on garden shade solutions. Combining different methods can create a layered and versatile shade environment in your garden, ensuring you have a comfortable and enjoyable outdoor space throughout the day.

  • What type of awnings do you sell?

  • Should I get a triangle, rectangle or a square sail shade?

  • How do I shade my yard without trees?

    Garden shade is a necessity for most home owners to enjoy their outdoor space to the fullest. If you've not got any trees in your garden, don't worry! There are plenty of other ways to introduce garden shade to your outdoor space without the need for trees.

    If you have a reliable outside wall and would like to extend your patio area, an awning is a great idea. You can install awnings onto the side of your home to enable you to really make the most of your time outdoors.

    If you're not keen on attaching anything to the existing areas of your home or garden, why not try a free standing structure such as a verandagazeboarbour or pergola? These wonderful shading structures will introduce shade to your home with versatility. You can also use them as a focal point to design your garden around, such as introducing vines or climbing plants around your pergola or accessorising your veranda with a furniture set, outdoor lighting and a fire pit to really spark some joy.
