  Garden Getaway Brackets for Shade Structure Kits
  make installation quick & easy!

Now you can easily build your own free-standing wood "Garden Getaway"

using these easy-to-install steel bracket kits, with either the ShadeTree® Forester or Strip-Track model canopy systems. Hardware kits include all metal corner post brackets and bolts needed to complete the job, plus attractive post caps. Easy-to-follow plans with details of lumber materials needed are also included (Lumber and Forester or Strip-Track overhead canopy and track system purchased separately).


There is no complicated measuring, sawing, hammering, drilling or post-hole digging required

. Simply drill holes in line with brackets, then insert bolts. Posts do not need to be buried into ground as heavy-duty steel corner brackets add sufficient strength for a stand-alone system. ShadeTree canopies are easily installed after wood frame system is completed. System can be easily dissembled for moving to another location if desired. Makes a fun weekend project!

shade stuctures corner detail
A specially-designed steel corner post support system makes this a very strong structure. The design specifies husky 6 x 6 (nominally 5-1/2" x 5-1/2") posts with 4 x 6 beams. Posts do not need to be buried into the ground as the heavy-duty corner brackets add sufficient strength for a stand-alone system. The steel brackets and handsome post caps are pre-painted a pleasant garden green to coordinate with most fabric colors. Corner brackets can also be used for structures attached to house.
A shaded "getaway" shade structure you can build to create a cool, outdoor gathering area for friends & family to enjoy! Shadetree Canopies Shade Structure
