Every redesign needs a focal point. An item that immediately catches the eye and stands out as the centerpiece for the design. For a backyard in Whitby, a tall modern structure and retractable canopy stand out as an impressive feature in the outdoor space.

The homeowners outfitted the space underneath with synthetic wicker couches and cushioned chairs where they can relax without a care of impending weather. Its placement makes it the perfect spot for the family to gather, spend time together and watch the activities in the rest of the yard.

Local landscaping company DPR Landscapes helped the homeowners create the backyard of their dreams. They custom-built a unique wood structure for the beautifully renovated outdoor space. Specializing in creating lifetime spaces that stand out from the rest, the DPR team reached out to ShadeFX for a dynamic shade solution to protect the newly formed gathering area.

After consultations with our Product Specialist and submitting a sketch of the dimensions of their structure, a 14’x12’ retractable canopy in a dark Harbour Time Onyx fabric was specified.

“ShadeFX products are of the highest quality and are the perfect finishing touch to our outdoor structures. Our clients love them, and that’s why we continue to recommend ShadeFX for all our outdoor structures.”

The eco-friendly rope drive ensures smooth operation of the canopy when retracting and extending the shade. In addition, the canopy can be locked in place anywhere along the track if the homeowners prefer partial coverage.

With the signature pieces in place, no rain or sun can stop the homeowners from fully enjoying their stylish, and now functional backyard.
