DIY Simple Backyard Shade - Put PVC pipe into bucket then pour cement around it. Once dry, put bucket in tall planter, surround bucket w/ gravel, top w/ soil. (Not covering pipe) Stick bamboo pole into pipe & hang fabric w/ ties through grommets.
Using planters, fence posts, buckets, quick Crete, grommet kit and hooks. We needed more shade so decided to make this. Still need some plants in our pots but Im super happy with the results! Better then an umbrella. Back yard project.
