This courtyard style canopy was installed as part of a series by the BBC investigating the different ways in which small gardens could be laid out.
The canopy in this particular space formed an invaluable sunshade to a very sunny courtyard. It also had to incorporate a quick install/remove process, enabling it be put up and taken down over multiple occasions throughout the summer months.
When considering a canopy of this type, particular attention should be paid to the fixings, as brickwork is often very insubstantial and loads should perhaps be distributed over a wider area.
