If designing a shade sail project in our experience we find that the more difference there is in the heights of the posts, the more dramatic the final design will be. Allowing them to lean backward 5 or 10 degrees gives the ´nautical´ feeling.
Using 2 or more different colour sails is very popular and gives depth in the design. If the sails overlap at some point then the look is even more dramatic. This can be done to blend in with the landscape or contrast with it depending on your style.
Our CUSTOM MADE shade sails are made with a stainless steel cable sewn into the perimeter. These cables will make the sail more stable in high winds and allow us to work with sails with less curves.
