How to Put Up an Outdoor Canopy

Although there are many different types of canopies available which all require slightly different techniques, there are some basic guidelines to follow. Following these simple steps will help ensure that your canopy goes up properly, without damage and with minimal effort.

Unpack and Identify All Parts

Your canopy may come with a separate cover, or the cover may be built into the structure itself. You may also have purchased separate weights, anchors, trusses, or other canopy accessories. Before you begin, make sure that every required part is close at hand. If you need to pound stakes into the ground, be sure to have a mallet handy as well.

Clear the Ground

Whether you plan on setting out a temporary floor for your canopy or simply enjoying the grass, it’s essential to make sure that the ground you’re setting your canopy on is free from rocks, sticks, toys and other debris. There are a few reasons for this.

Stepping on a rock is not only painful, but it can throw you off balance and bring your half-erected canopy crashing down. In addition, if you plan to use any type of ground cover under your canopy, debris or toys will create unsightly bumps and most likely rip or tear the ground cover.

Enlist a Partner

Some larger canopies require more than two people in order to set them up safely and properly. However, many small and medium sized portable canopy shelters can be put up with two people. Attempting to put your canopy up on your own, however, is likely to result in frustration and failure. Enlist a willing friend or family member.  You’ll save yourself from headaches, and the frustration of leaving a canopy crumpled on the ground, awaiting a helping hand.

Enhance Your Canopy with a Path

Canopies are great for nearly every kind of outdoor entertaining, and they’re also excellent places to gather for everyday relaxation. If you plan on leaving a canopy up for a whole season or even permanently, you’ll want to think about creating a pathway to your new outdoor living space. Creating a path not only makes your canopy look more permanent, but it’s a chance to do some creative landscaping and enhance the look of your entire property!

Choosing the Path Itself

Choosing the material for your path should depend on your budget and on the permanence of your canopy. If you plan to use this spot as an outdoor entertaining and relaxation area for years to come, then you can look into materials such as concrete or stone. If, on the other hand, you’re not sure how long the canopy will be in place, consider simply removing the grass from your pathway and landscaping along the edges. This will make it much simpler to let the area go back to simply being part of the lawn once the backyard canopy is taken down.

Remember that while individual pieces such as pavers and stones can be installed on a DIY basis, a cement or concrete path needs the experience and equipment which only professional installation offers.

Have Fun with Landscaping

A path is a smaller landscaping project, so have fun with it. If you’re using a plain dirt path, remember to treat for weeds so unwanted growth doesn’t compete with what you intentionally plant. Stamping down the dirt also gives a more manicured appearance and cuts down on loose dirt being tracked indoors on your shoes.

Creating low borders is a classically beautiful idea, whether they’re cool greens or bursting with bright colors. You can even add a whimsical touch with an archway to define the beginning of the path…let some climbing plants grow up the sides, or add twinkle lights to really make your outdoor canopy area sparkle!
