I ordered 2 triangles (lime green and turquoise) and thought we could overlap them to make a square but no matter how and where you set your posts, it's not going to be square. We used the to cover our large patio so our furniture would not get so faded as the sun comes around to that side of the house after 12 pm and stays until dark. Living on a mounatin, we get some heavy winds and lost 4 big umbrellas last year. After reading other reviews, I thought this would be worth trying. This summer we had winds that exceeded 80 m.p.h. and while these winds took down and uprooted 150 year old oak trees, these sun sails held strong throughout the whole ordeal. These heavey winds are not normal for this area but it's happened 4 times already and the sun sails are still hanging. They do need to be tightened as they are sagging a little now from all the winds and rain. One thing we are going to change is the way they are hung. My husband planted 2 - 12' posts, 3' in the ground, topped off with cement and covered them with a heavy white plastic, square insert (made for fencing, capped it and bolted larger eye hooks at the top side of the posts. The other eye hooks come off the posts on our outdoor kitchen (that part of the bar has a roof and 20' wooden bar top) Since the 2 triangle sails didn't work, I ordered a square one. The sail comes under the roof line above the bar top and keeps the rain off the bar stools. The sail angles down a little from the other posts to allow water to run off. (Don't know what they are called but the "T" shaped things that you tie a boat off on a dock is what we are looking to use to replace the screwed in eye hooks.) This would make it so much easier when the sun sail needs to be tightened. The way it is now, is just too much trouble to deal with. We did replace the ropes they sent with a little larger ones simpley because of the constant winds blowing up this mountain but if you don;t have that problem, the sent ropes would work just fine. Since we now have 3 sun sails (2 triangles and 1 square) we put the large, square turquoise first and added the lime green to the top side and it blocks out more harsh sunlight. They do give shade but the mesh keeps you cooler. Just wish they were waterproof. They do drip rain when it comes down. But it has saved our cushions from getting faded and held up through heavy winds - I'm impressed with these sun sails.

I haven't installed this yet, but I will follow the advice of others regarding the hardware. The green is a deeper spring green than the color shown in the photo. I wanted a more yellow green, as shown, but in the harsh Florida sun, I'm sure it will fade to that color soon enough. Also got the turquoise triangle shade to pair with this one for a more interesting look.

The sun shade works great on the farm! I ordered the other shape too and liked them both so much that I ordered another set, this time in green.

I ordered both the square and the triange and they work great on the farm. I ended up ordering another set in green to put by the pool on the farm.

Love the look! It has held up great in very high winds! The colour (green) has not faded at all (5 months of being up) We are very happy with this purchase!

Very, very happy with my two shade canopies in green. I just love them and it is great to sit on the deck in the hot sun in Florida and be shaded. Wonderful, Wonderful!

Love the shade ! Easy to install and looks wonderful in the birdcage above our putting green. Great value !! Would definitely order any item from Overstock because I have been pleased with my purchases thus far.

My dark green sun shade was easy to install and adjust to get the greatest benefit. We needed to shade a large picture window from hot morning sun on our deck. It also is a good way to divert rain from a seating area.

I have received more compliments on my shades. I purchased the square ones. My first choice was beige but I procrastinated and they only had green to choose from at the time I purchased them. I cannot comment on the durability yet, I've only had it up two weeks. Would buy them again! Absolutely love them.

I can't wait to set our Square Sail Sun Shade up! I wish there was more color choices. however, We would've gone with red or orange, or maybe a light lime or moss green.

What a great item! We have the sails, one green one yellow over our deck. We had NO shade and the deck was unbearable during the day. Now we have shade and love it. My brother has his over the swimming pool and they are great there also. Perfect for the sunny hot south!

Love this shade sail! It keeps my yard much cooler in the summer. I had one previously, which lasted for a few years, and would have lasted longer if we had taken it down in the winter. The green color was the only one available, which wouldn't have been my first choice, but ended up looking very nice in the yard. A little tricky to put up, but can be done by a rookie

We have put this up in several locations - over the pool when it was too hot, over the garden swings and chairs and have it suspended with Green clothes lines. Cheap, strong and invisible as they come out from the trees. We used pulleys and lots of extra line, soo we can move it about and it looks like it floats. Very cool. I love it/

I chose green for the most shade. The material is very ,very thick & very sturdy which will make it easy to clean & stand up to adverse weather as well as the sun... All the fixtures come with it & instructions too, I am very happy with this choice & the price was outstanding!! I'll be back to shop for more fantastic finds.

I purchased 3, 2 triangular and 1 square for my 16x26 deck. Quality is stronger than expected, good hardware and the color green is nice and dark. If you compare to other websites, the price is a fraction of what others are charging AND no hardware included. For the price of 1 big umbrella, I purchased something that makes a statement! Love it!

Back yard now has the look of a resort! Love the high quality shades. It took us a few hours to put up two-yellow and green shades- to find spots that made the tension just right on the triangles. I am sure the durable looking thick material will last for many years.

I had to return two square sails, one was too big and the smaller wouldn't work with my rectangular pergolla. I now have two green triangle sails and am going to add a third. I am very pleased with the product and also have found that dealing with Overstock.com is the best. Very low shipping, amazingly quick delivery and easy, easy returns.

I purchased the Sail Sun Shade for my vegetable garden, we have temperatures over 100 degrees for almost two solid weeks, Losing all my tomato plants early last year because of the high temperatures, I decided to try the Sail Sun Shade to cover the plants and the plants are still green and producing tomatoes since being covered by the sail shade.

We ordered the lime green. The price for the quality of this products is pretty incredible. This is a very dense shade cloth compared to the fabric we have purchased from home improvement stores. The detail of the sewn in strapping is really attractive and adds a nice detail. The hardware on the sail is very nice as well. It looks very polished in our yard and brought much needed shade to our back porch.

I purchased the Sail Shade to put over our pergola. It looks great and works very well keeping out the sun.It has been up for about 3 weeks and so far shows no sign of fading or wear. The fabric is thick and tightly woven however It will not keep out rain. The hooks are heavy and do well when tying down the Sail Shade. I ordered the green one and the color is exactly as pictured. I do wish it would have been available in larger sizes.
