Now, firm up the subsoils using a compactor with least compressive force of 3200 pounds and begin adding 6-7 inches of crushed stone on top. Add thickness of 2-3 inches at a time until within 3 inches of the string line.
An alternative to a complete awning is a shade sail. Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.
Pergolas and arches can be ornamental or functional. When using an arch for a functional purpose, you could add a swing or bench to create somewhere cozy to sit and enjoy your garden. A pergola can be useful as an overhead patio or deck covering and can be designed to add shade to an outdoor seating area.
