If you’re like me, when the summer sun hits its zenith, I go searching for the nearest shade.

Between super fair skin and an intense dislike of nature’s littlest pests, I’m a big, big fan of tents, pavilions and other backyard, poolside or oceanfront structures.

Tents, canopies and gazebos are just some of the structures you can use to create shade in your yard.
