Best Melbourne Shade Sails from Landscaping Melbourne

Shade Sails installed in Melbourne, Victoria by Artisan Excavations

Shade sails are designed to create outdoor shade and provide relief from the heat of the sun. Using the same technology as the sail of a ship, they consist of a flexible membrane that is suspended and pulled taut between several anchor points. Sail shades are a fantastic solution to the burning summer heat, providing protection from sunburn and skin cancer.

Shade sails are both functional and very attractive

They’re more than just useful, however – they’re also very attractive. Available in a range of colours and sizes, shade sails can add an element of interest and appeal to your Melbourne home. They can also be used in any other public setting where people gather and need protection from the sun’s rays, such as car parks, playgrounds and swimming pools.
