How We Help

Architects & Designers

The design of outdoor areas comes with its own set of challenges for landscape architects in our Aussie climate. Not only is ensuring adequate light shade for garden and alfresco areas important, but in these water-wise times, limiting water loss from evaporation also comes into play.

Incorporating designer shade sails and elegant umbrellas into your designs shows thoughtful consideration of your clients’ ongoing use of their outdoor space.


We have a great relationship with construction companies and independent builders and understand the constraints under which they work. At Project Shade we know that working to specifications is vital, and that on time delivery is an important part of managing a workforce. When you have trades and labour teams to co-ordinate, any delay can result in cost blowouts.

Builders know that there is a lot more to domestic and commercial building projects than just walls, floors and roofs. The aesthetics of the outdoor areas are also important, and including the option of shade sails or shade structures from Project Shade’s range can be a real value-add to your quotes. Thoughtful points of difference like this can mean the difference between winning a job or losing it to a competitor.Whatever the size or shape of the area, we have a solution that will be just right.

Residential Improvements

Australian’s are great renovators, and for tradies involved in making improvements to people’s homes there is a lot of satisfaction in these transformations. Because we love entertaining out of doors, there are some key elements that are often requested in a reno project, including:

  • creating indoor/outdoor al fresco areas,
  • installing outdoor kitchens,
  • landscaping garden areas,
  • building decks and patios, and
  • installing pools

Important to all of these, but often neglected at the outset, is providing the shade and shelter necessary to ensure the comfort of users. Offering the option to provide and install  these as part of your works can really set you apart in a client’s decision-making process.

At Project Shade we have a huge range of shade sails, shade umbrellas (our cantilever umbrellas look amazing in cabanas and pool areas!), and shade structures in colours and styles to appeal to even the most discerning client.
