Posts for shade sails....wood or metal? - Can you use a cedar post to mount the shade sail? I bought a shade sail from Tenshon but haven't installed it yet as I am not sure if we can use wood posts. Please let me know. Thank you. Laura...from BC Canada

These posts are steel with a concrete footing base. You should be able to use wood as long as the members are large enough to handle the tension.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Shade Sails: Outdoor Rooms Take Wing
I'm particularly taken with the way these shade sails relate to the rocky desert setting and with the dramatic shadows they throw. They add a whole new dimension to the architecture and landscape.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Southwestern Garden Style
Patio overheads with thick wooden beams may be traditional, but if you need some shade (and who doesn't in this climate?) and don't want to add a permanent overhead structure, a simple shade sail can be stunning. Design tip: Plant trees near the house. It will help cool the adjacent areas as well as the house itself.

Note how different height fixing positions "warp" the cloth to give it a unique shape. we should do this. Also - are those mulitple cloths at the end ? Colour is rad.
