As a sun protection for the terrace, the fabric roof, tent roof and screen compete with the parasol. They shield from spectators and delicately keep out the midday heat and blinding sun.

Summer mood thrives on dog days on the dark side. If you dream of a secluded spot in the green, you can grow knotweed, pipe winds or trumpet flowers on the bamboo grille and replace the parasol with stately potted plants. Wood panels make patio boundaries opaque all year round, but require some maintenance. Awning fabric can be cut into any shape and used individually on the terrace. The hard-wearing fabric fanned as a sail, curtain or screen cooling and defied wind and weather all season. With the garden hose you shower dust, dirt or pollen from the fabric from time to time. So that the sun protection does not moss, hibernate the sun sail in the garage, in the basement or in the attic.

Sun protection - sun moth

The striped giant fan hangs up on the wall on rainy days and unfolds its nostalgic protective effect only when ordered.

That's how it's done

The five compartment elements are made of 15 millimeter thick, waterproof lacquered MDF board. Drill a hole in each of the elements and paint them half blue and white.

Then connect all the parts with screen hinges. Attach the wing to the wall with three angles on the front and back. Its lower edge rests on a transverse metal plate, which is held on the side by two screwed-on angles. If the construction is well anchored in the ground, the screen can also withstand stronger wind and rainy weather. If proper cohesion is required, push a bolt through the holes and lock them with the nut and washer.

A fabric sky over the terrace

Under the fabric sky of this country house pergola, you can even dream in the north from the south.

That's how it's done

Two window-high solid wood pillars of 12 x 12 centimeters sit on post anchors in 20 x 20 centimeters of concrete support foundations. They are connected by a log. For the sky, stretch a rope at a 30-degree angle, diagonally between the wall and the post. A horizontal tension rope carries the curtain on one or both sides. For hanging, attach rings or eyelets to the fabric panels at intervals of 30 centimeters. The tent roof can be flexibly opened and closed with the help of a double-sided Roman blind pulling rope - which can be bought in the curtain department.

A tent roof as sun protection

In the cool shadow realm of the half-tent, you can also find peace and relaxation in the midday heat.

That's how it's done

Cut an isosceles triangle out of awning fabric and hem the edges. Then punch eyelets in the corners and in the middle, the side lying on the floor. For suspension, dowel a ringed metal tab into the masonry. You clamp the sail with carabiners between the wall and floor. A nice holder on the floor is provided with boulders wrapped in ropes, but pebble-filled linen bags also ensure the hold.

That's how it's done

Place the tubs “safe from puddles”, for example on clay feet. Flowers can then climb up between boulders from the garden center on the homemade grid made of three-centimeter-thick bamboo tubes. To keep the whole thing, wrap wire and bast around the cross points.

The screen on the terrace

The sound of the sea comes from the loudspeaker.

That's how it's done

For the Mediterranean step screen, cement round wood into perforated prefabricated concrete feet from the hardware store and attach a removable wall bar with metal brackets to the wall. Sew sheets of awning fabric with loops so that they can later be pulled over the logs in a gear-like manner.
