“Welcome to DIY Shade – Shadesails Made Easy. The Information here gives an overview of what the DIY Shade book covers as well as the SPECIAL OFFER we’re currently running. ”
Hello. For over a decade I’ve run a successful business designing and installing custom-made shade cloth sails. I’ve taken what I’ve learned and summarised it into an easy to read, easy to apply manual that makes it easier than ever before to install a DIY Shade Sail and get a professional result. Not only will you gain a great sense of achievement having installed your very own shade sail, you’ll save thousands of dollars!
Real Life Examples
I know this because all 3 shade sails to the right here are Real Life Examples of a actual shadesail installed by people who had never done it before. Using the easy to follow information these DIY’er installed their shadesail all by themselves. These guys did it and you can too! Just follow the step by step instructions showing you how high to make your poles and how deep to dig your holes. As you can see, the end result will be a professional quality shade sail at a fraction of the price you would have paid someone to come and do the job for you.
In it I look at some common shadesail designs and make comments about what works and why!
We have kept the Focus on Keeping it SIMPLE
DIY SHADE, Shade-sails Made Easy is a step-by-step installation guide for the DIY Shade sail installer. It covers the basic principles of designing and installing a shade sail. You don’t have to worry about complicated jargon. We’ve left all that out. If you’re planing to cover the Sydney Foodball Stadium with a shade sail then this book probably isn’t for you. If you’re planning to cover your courtyard or swimming pool then this book will answer all your questions and walk you step by step through the process.
“I certainly wish I’d had this book when I started my shadesail business all those years ago. It would have saved me a great deal of ‘on the job’ learning. “

Read actual reviews from people who’ve already bought the book…
We’d love you to buy this book and install you’re own shade sail. We’d also love you to give us your feedback. Here is what some people have told us already.
When it comes to installing your own sun shade I’d say don’t even think about it unless you get a few tips from the pros. This guy gives clear practical information about how to avoid the making what seem like silly mistakes in hindsight. I bought it and although my project isn’t finished yet, I’m confident we’ll end up with a great result. If I hadn’t ordered this book, I know exactly where I’d be now – in a hole, not digging one!
– John & Kylie
Read it from front to back. I’m going to put in a shade cloth sail this summer and wanted to learn all about it and figure out how to do it on the cheap but still be nice and look professional. This book helped me do all those things.
– Mark Ba
“This book really lays the whole thing on the table. It’s easy to follow but covers some pretty technical stuff. I reckon I might even start my own shadesail business after reading it.”
– Laura J
I like shade, I like cook-outs, I like my yard. I don’t much like digging holes. The value of this book to me was to know who to hire and what to tell them to do. The book gives sizes of poles, depth of holes and other useful information about how to design a really good shade sail for your yard. I’m expecting perfection.
– Trevor H
That’s me and I have a shade to prove it. I followed the guide. (I would have like it to be in imperial because its written for Australia which is metric and I had to do a few conversions but that wasn’t to hard) and now I have a cool shade and a happy wife. Life is good.
I looked at buying the book a while ago but never did anything. Now I’ve just come back and bought it and noticed that quite a bit of the information has been updated. There is lots of clear photos and explanations. I’d say if your even half handy at DIY stuff you could have a good chance of getting it right first go.
– Peter Tabu
Written in a practical easy to understand way I’ve found this book to be well worth what I paid for it. The information was presented logically and for someone like me who know basically nothing about this, I’ve learned a lot and feel confident to give it a go.
– Will H.
I looked at this a couple of times before buying it. Wasn’t a lot of info in the “Look inside section” but I went ahead and bought it and I’m glad I did. The book gives really good detail about how to plan the project and put it into practice. I’m a big one for doing a bit of research on any thing I’m doing new for the first time and as much as anything the value for me has been avoiding some of the big mistakes which I’m sure I would have made.
Fact is, you can scan round the internet looking for how to do this or you can just put your hand in your pocket and buy it and save yourself a whole lot of time and get everything you need right there and then. In this case, I’d say don’t waste your time trying to find this stuff out there in cyber land, it’s not out there, just buy this book, the info is genuinely good and worth the price.
– Nic M
If your looking for a book that is full of practical experience and charts and diagrams about how to put up a shade then you should consider buying this book. I’m not 100% sure that after reading it that I can do everything that he talks about but even he says that, do the bits you want and get a contractor in to do the rest. That’s what we did and it worked.
– Jessica & Rob
“I’m a semi-handy man and was contemplating putting up a shade in our yard but wasn’t confident about how to do it. I also wanted to know about how big I could go and if I could hook one corner to the side of the house. This book helped me work out what was possible and what was a big dodgy and, more importantly to know that I was in over my head. In the end it has helped me to talk to some contractors in an informed way and to give clear instruction as to what I want.” I plan to do parts of the job and get others in to do the ‘heavy lifting’. Glad I got it. Worth every cent!
– Ian R
“Think about it, the hotter it gets the harder it works, it runs for free, it’s 100% environmentally friendly and without a doubt quality shade is the safest sunscreen ever invented.”
Why We Love Shade
Learn From My Experience and Avoid the mistakes most DIY Shade sail installers Make
When I started my business back in the summer of 2000 I wish this information was available. It would have saved me thousands of dollars and countless “expensive lessons”. Back then I paid an engineer thousands of dollars to calculate all the sizes of holes, poles and hardware and provide them to me in a detailed set of engineering charts.
I’ve taken those charts and summarised them to make it easy for YOU as a Do-it-Yourself Shadesail Installer to read and apply them. They are right there in the book ready for you to use. The charts alone are worth their weight in gold if you’re considering installing your own shadesail. They’ll ensure that the work you go to won’t be wasted. That when you install your own shadesail you will be able to reference a chart that gives you the correct specifications for columns and footings.
BY THE WAY…
Did you know, shade sails also provide protection from hail. Here’s a shadesail we put up to protect this car in the driveway. Not long after it was installed a big hail storm when through Sydney and the sail filled with hail. The owner of the car took the photo on the left. After the hail melted we went back, gave the sail a quick re-tension and it was as good as new.
That’s right shade sails are also hail sails.
