If your deck or patio is partially covered, drape lengths of fabric or canvas between the joists to create shade. Space out the pieces of fabric for a more transparent look, and add lights to illuminate the space at night.
No-fuss lighting doubles as garden art! Elegant and efficient Solar Etched Dragonfly Lights require no hard wiring or batteries. And that dragonfly pattern that makes the shade pretty by day is cast on the ground at night!
