Did you watch Love Your Garden on ITV last night? If so, did you spot our shade sail?
Last night’s episode featured a garden renovation in Eastleigh near Southampton, whereby an ‘uninviting patch of uneven lawn’ transformed into a wonderful cruise ship-inspired heaven for Rosie and her husband Tony; the theme truly fitting for the location given Southampton is the cruise hub of the country.
Rosie has spent over 38 years looking after and nursing sick and ill children, so is rightly deserving of this makeover, whereby she can spend hours relaxing in her retirement. The idea behind a cruise theme transpired from her and her husband’s love of cruising in her spare time, and as she says ‘it was the only time I felt I was able to relax’.
One of the key features of this new garden was a shady seating area for relaxation, and what better accessory for this than our very own ‘Kookaburra Shade Sail‘ – Alan has great taste. The ultra-tight weave of the fabric has been independently tested to UPF34+ making these sail shades near impenetrable by sunlight. More than 96.5% of harmful UV rays are blocked out as a result, making it a perfect spot for Rosie and her family to spend many a summer day under.
What a great end product I think you would all agree?
