How to Optimize Sun Protection in Your Backyard

It’s that sunny and hot part of the year, the time when most of us throw away our shoes and choose to enjoy some fun in the sun. We apply sun protection creams and put on our hats so we can enjoy our backyard and garden magic. Aside from different benefits, the sun brings to our minds and bodies, being excessive to it can cause serious health issues, as sunstroke and sunburns. Fortunately, aside from a good sunblock, there are other ways to protect you and your family from the harmful effects of sunlight. Here’s what can be done.

Trust in Mother Nature

Did you know that natural shading and evapotranspiration can reduce the temperature up to six degrees? It’s amazing how nature is generous and welcoming. With natural shade, you can enjoy the shade and the cool air during hot days. Creating a tone from natural sources is one of the most beautiful ways to protect yourself from the sun. If you have no trees in your backyard, you can always plant them.

Furthermore, if you plant trees that are native to your region, they will be as twice as beneficial to you and the nature around you. You are impatient and want to enjoy your natural shade as soon as possible? No problem, go for some fast-growing trees, such as weeping willow, red maple, Chinese tallow tree, cottonwoods and Lombardy poplars. If you rely on Mother Nature, one thing is sure: you will be protected from harmful UV light and save some money on air-conditioning.

How about an outdoor umbrella?

They can be used for more than protecting you from the rain; umbrellas are perfect for sun protection as well. If you like having a tan but don’t want permanent sun protection, then portable shade structures are simply perfect for you.

It ‘s nice to know that guys at Sydney Shade offer innovative wall-mounted outdoor umbrellas that not only save space and protect from the sun but also considerably enhance the visual appeal of your outdoor setting.  If you go for portable shading, you will not make a mistake. After you get it, all you have to do is call some friends, make delicious food and enjoy the summer.

DIY’s for backyard oasis

If you don’t want to spend your hard-earned cash, you can always choose to make a shade on your own. There are many creative and beautiful DIY shade ideas to use for your patio, garden or backyard. We hope that some of these ideas will hit the shady spot, so put your handy hats on and roll up your sleeves, because there are some these fantastic ideas. The perfect thing is that you can use all kinds of materials, from wood to fabric, even water reed.

If you prefer wood, make a roof screen or pergola with an oriental lattice shade. It will give your patio fresh and mystic look. If you are a fan of wire-hung canopy system, there are fantastic ways to save some money and make your backyard shady and cool.

As you can see for yourself, proper sun protection is essential for our health. Make sure you utilize a great backyard UV protection, so you and your family, can enjoy your outdoor space safely. It’s true that professionally installed shade systems often cost more, but they do offer higher degrees of sun protection, and they are better in resisting the elements such as rain, wind, and snow. Whatever you pick, the most important thing is to have your place in the sun, or in this case, in the shade.
