it looks great on our new deck and offers an alternative to an umbrella. we live near the water and the "sail" concept fits in perfectly with our nautical decor.
I purchased this shade sail for a small area on my patio where I want to place additional seating in the shade. Very sturdy, nice looking. In the grey it looks somewhat high tech and modern which matches my outdoor decor. In my case, I could have gone one size larger so measure your space carefully and make sure that 8' is going to provide enough shade. I only gave 4 stars because one of the hardware packages was missing the eye bolt which is a critical piece. However, if you shop around you will find that comparable products at the same price point do not even include hardware at all. I appreciated this...
Yellow is not every body, but it works perfectly for my decor. The shade is easy to install, and it makes a different in a hot summer day. Even my dog would notice and go under the shade and chill. The material is heavy and once it is installed, the material will relax(it came in folded in a box) and the weight will pull it down a bit. I have to tighten the ropes every couple days at first. But it is very nice.
