Spring has arrived, urging us to embrace the outdoors where shade structures become essential for a delightful experience. They offer a convenient spot to sit, meet, eat, gather, and conduct business outdoors while taking in the scenery. With warmer days ahead, more people are inclined to spend time outdoors, highlighting the importance of shade in creating inviting outdoor spaces. Join us for our April CEU session with USA Shade: Best Practices for Design and Specification of Fabric Shade Structures.
