We need fresh eyes to look at our outdoor living area problem. We are desperate for some ideas for the west side of our pergola which heats up in the afternoon sun. We've looked at a motorised awning, but not sure that it will fit under the gutter or that it will be suitable on windy days. Considered a cantilevered extension which we could put shade cloth over, but we've been told the beams would fall down. We've also considered a shade sail but where we would need to put in the uprights we have a brick retaining wall so it would be awkward. Husband is not keen to add the uprights for this and is also concerned about winds. I also considered outdoor type curtains but the screen panels in the pergola concertina when we want t open the area up, and the curtains would be in the way of this. Any suggestions?
