With the last rain storm we had, our tarp awning got torn and battered. I took it down, I never liked that thing anyway. It was loud when the wind blew, and very cheap looking I thought.
I had my sons take it off, then I got some bamboo fencing. It comes rolled up, and you just have to unroll it. We wired the white poles in a grid so it could just sit on top. Then we tied it on with hemp rope. I tried to match the color of the bamboo on top, and the trees on the side polls. I wanted the polls to disappear. What do you think so far?
