Your Perfect Garden Awning

Our garden awnings are designed to be durable and offer you high levels of protection, providing shade during sunny warm days and shelter for light rain. These structures have high-quality water-resistant fabrics with UPF 50+ as standard, meeting whatever design needs you to have and keeping you protected.

Curious as to what type of garden awning works best for you? Take a look at our guide on patio coverings.


What Is An Awning?

Patio awnings tend to be attached to the building, for example over patio doors or large balcony areas, but they can also be freestanding, with a framework supporting a fabric roof that is either fixed to the ground with concrete foundations or on stabilisation boxes.

To know which one would be ideal for your patio, consider storage and assembly: freestanding awnings tend to be more flexible with installation taking place away from the property, whereas patio and pergola awnings are fixed to the building with wall brackets.


How Are Garden Awnings Used?

Providing shelter on patio areas, freestanding awnings tend to be used in backyard gardens that need shading but are too far away from the house to have a structure connected to the building. This way, garden awnings offer more usable outdoor space when the sun is shining harshly, offering shade to your guests without requiring wall mounting.

Patio awnings mounted near windows are ideal for anyone who prioritises keeping a home cool and fresh through the day, at the same time making it possible to entertain outdoors. They can keep temperatures down by blocking direct sunlight from windows, and also avoid sun damage on decor pieces. One of the most common choices is retractable awnings since these can be extended or retracted depending on weather conditions.
