Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to 6 Ways to Cool Off Without Air Conditioning
I can’t stress enough that the best way to beat the heat is to block the sunlight before it reaches your house. Whether you do that by hanging shades, installing awnings or even planting trees, the most effective use of the funds in your home-cooling budget is in this first step. When you’re planting trees for shade (or installing any kind of shading), think about the sun’s path through the sky. It may help you to check out an app called Sun Surveyor (or a similar one) that can help you track the sun’s path and how its rays hit your house. See 7 great shade trees

Shades, awnings and shade trees are more efficient in cooling a house than inside drapes. An app, Sun Surveyor, will help you chart the sun's path over your house.
