You can build a cantilever shade structure using only two support posts with this Alpine bracket kit.

or mounting to your home is not an option, these cantilever "Alpine" bracket kits are a great way to create your own shaded retreat. You'll use only two 6 x 6" posts (set in concrete in the ground) and 4" x 6" lumber. We provide the brackets, tracks, bolts, and ShadeTree® Canopies in your choice of fabric, plus a handy construction diagram with a list of lumber requirements.

The frame can be stained or painted to blend with your home or fencing, and the retractable canopies slide effortlessly in strip-track that is attached to the framing. Each model comes complete with our patented "wind-release" system.

Attractive, and practical, too.
These are handsome systems that will add a comfortable, shaded area to your back yard, and will protect you and your children from the sun's harmful UV rays.
