Hi bellacatandme

I'm in Bendigo, but any business that makes shadecloth sails would be able to do it.

I’ve just built a pergola and put bamboo fencing covers from Bunnings on top and also hung from the side which I can roll up when I want more light. During summer I put a double layer on top, tied down with cable ties and removed in autumn . So far seems to be keeping quite cool.

Living in the tropics I know all about sun, and the damage it can do, so when we needed shade over our small pool, outdoor eating area, and the end of the patio, we installed a large outdoor umbrella that can swivel to cover all three areas if needs be. It can be folded down in winter too, which is a bonus.
