Let’s explore how we can bring your vision to life within your budget while adding those special touches like an inbuilt BBQ hood or contemporary privacy panels.

Our journey started in 2020. The pandemic forced us all to stay at home and we wanted to find a way maximise the use of our outdoor space and to be able to use it more comfortably and regularly. At that time, we were not able to find a suitable garden shade that suited these needs, protecting us and our garden furniture regardless of the British weather.

We all want to enjoy our garden and outside area, with a Hampshire Shade you can open the shade fully and enjoy an open view of the blue sky. Or choose to close it, always safe in the knowledge that you will remain dry, whatever the wind and rain had to offer. It’s fully waterproof too, that’s unique within the UK for a retractable shade, bespoke to individual sizes and your requirements.

Transform your outdoor space with Hampshire Shade, the ultimate solution for enjoying your garden in any weather. Our bespoke retractable shades are fully waterproof and designed to protect you and your furniture from the elements. Choose between manual or motor-driven options, available in a variety of fabric colors to suit your style. With an aluminum construction and anodized finish, our shades are built to last outdoors while providing a modern touch to your pergola frame.

Concept & Initial Proposal

Our journey together begins with a friendly, no-obligation phone consultation. This allows us to gain a clear understanding of your vision, timeline, and budget for your garden project. Whether you’re still in the brainstorming phase for your outdoor space, considering adding some shade to your existing pergola, or seeking a comprehensive frame and shade solution – we’ve got you covered. Following our discussion, we will provide an initial proposal tailored to your needs along with an estimated cost. Our aim is to help you create the garden of your dreams while respecting both your time and financial investment.

Design & Order

At this stage, we will conduct a site visit to confirm the feasibility of installing a pergola frame and shade in your desired location, as well as to measure all necessary site dimensions. We will also discuss the available material and finish of your pergola frame and shade design to suit your project. Upon completion of this stage, we will furnish you with a full proposal detailing your chosen specifications, a timeline with a scheduled installation date, and a thorough breakdown of costs. Upon approval and receipt of a deposit, we will proceed with manufacturing your pergola frame and shade.

Manufacture and Install

Each and every pergola frame and shade we create is meticulously designed and expertly crafted, without compromise, right here in our Hampshire workshop.  This approach allows us to minimise any on-site fabrication, ensuring a seamless installation process for you. We believe in keeping our clients, like yourself, informed at every step of the way, so rest assured that we will provide regular updates on the progress of your project. To ensure a seamless process, we kindly request that the final payment be settled before delivery and installation. By taking this step, you can sit back, relax, and watch as your garden transforms into a beautiful outdoor haven right before your eyes.


While it’s true that the cost of our bespoke Hampshire Shade and frame might exceed that of mass-produced, self-assembly alternatives, the value you receive is incomparable. Each shade is meticulously designed to reflect your unique lifestyle and handcrafted in our local Hampshire workshop.

Our design, is unique in the UK, offers a full blue sky opening for those sunny days and a truly waterproof closure for when the weather turns. This comes paired with a modern or traditional pergola frame, hand-built to perfection.

The final price varies depending on factors such as the size of your desired frame and shade, chosen materials and colours. We can tailor-make any individual size up to 6m x 3m or combine them into ‘kissing canopies’ to cover larger areas.

We understand that budgeting is an important aspect of any home improvement project. That’s why we’re always ready to discuss ideas within your budget range while advising on design choices that offer savings without compromising quality or style. We can even incorporate bespoke features like an inbuilt BBQ hood or contemporary panels for added privacy.

Remember – investing in your garden isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about creating a space where you can relax, entertain and enjoy life at its best!
