We've decided to bit the bullet and buy some sort of shade appartus for our deck this summer. I kept waiting for deals last summer and by the time they came, there was nothing left to buy.
I am going back and forth between a big umbrella and a gazebo. By gazebo, I mean that freestanding kind you can get a Target--basically a decorative tent.
An umbrella would be nice because it can be tilted to block the sun. It would also be easy to take down.
A gazebo would be nice because it has mosquito netting. And it would block rain a little better than an umbrella. But it would be hard to move and take down.
What should we do? I need opinions. Cost is basically the same so don't use that in your decision making. Let's hear it!
