Garden canopies create an inviting and dramatic retreat in your landscape. Situate the canopy around your garden for a cozy space to enjoy in the evening with friends and family. Plant colorful flowers and scented herbs around your space for a beautiful landscape design. Scatter solar lights around the canopy for a warm and magical glow at night.
Clear out the space of weeds and debris before installing canopy. Rake the ground to ensure the space is level and smooth.
Dig a hole for each of the four hedge posts. Dig a deep-enough hole so at least one half of the hedge is buried into the ground. For a good-sized canopy, buy hedge posts between 10 and 12 feet in height.
Place the hedge post in the hole and fill the hole with remaining soil. Press firmly to make sure the post is securely in the ground.
Plant creeping vines in containers around the base of each hedge post. Over time, the vines will grow around the hedge posts.
Attach outdoor canvas to the top of the hedge posts using wood screws. Use one piece of material for the canopy. Allow an additional 2 to 4 feet, so the material drapes over the posts.
Layer 2 to 4 inches of outdoor pebbles under the canopy to create a smooth surface. Enjoy your new garden canopy.
