An empty backyard is a blank canvas for homeowners to create the ultimate paradise. Whether it’s a sprawling space or a pocket-size yard, creating a practical and picturesque retreat isn’t complete without retractable canopies.

These lucky homeowners in Uxbridge, Ontario reached out to ShadeFX with a concept for an outdoor cooking station and alfresco dining. Working alongside a local contractor, a massive 32’ x 18’ wooden pergola sits on stone columns with concrete caps. On one end, a stone countertop creates the outdoor kitchen space where the structure cantilevers.

Adding versatile shade to the space, ShadeFX customized two 18’ x 16’ manual retractable canopies in a Harbor Time Antique Beige fabric. ShadeFX coordinated installation, flange mounting the retractable canopies with integrated track supporting beams. All system components are painted a ‘beige grey’ to complement the wooden structure.

“…Captured the look and feel we were trying to achieve perfectly. We are completely satisfied with the results of the work performed on our outdoor area and would not hesitate to use ShadeFX again.”
