The first thing we might think of when we hear the word ‘canopy’ is the leaves of tall trees which make a heavy cover overhead, not allowing the sun to touch the heavy undergrowth in dense forests. In modern times, ‘canopy’ has a different meaning. Canopies, or outdoor canopies, are temporary coverings used in open outside space. However, there are a number of varieties of canopies, and one has the opportunity to choose from hundreds of canopies that are easily available at retail shops and online as well.
A few types of canopies are outdoor shade canopies, outdoor canopy tents, garden canopies, pop-up canopies, KD canopies and so on. Canopies are not only meant for taking rest in the outdoors, but are also concerned with the protection of your valuable outdoor assets. Usually, the canopies are attractive and sturdy. They serve as cover, shade and shelter for your patio, greenhouse, party, flea market, parking space, nursery, plants, flowers, camping area, garden area, pet, storage, deck, pool, barbeque, dog kennel, outdoor event or construction area.
Not only this, a canopy can also give shelter and protection to one’s car, truck, recreational vehicle, boat, Jet Ski and other such things. These fancy and multi-functional canopies can also be used as a free-standing carport, dock house, gazebo, garage and virtually any other cover. However, the most popular canopy of today is the portable canopy. A portable canopy is the one which can be carried from one place to another without much effort. Usually these canopies are foldable. The portable canopies are basically tents without sides, just a top supported by poles.
