Design Services

At Shadeport we offer an extensive design service which uses computer modelling software to generate 3D imagery to so you know exactly how your new shade project will look before a single hole is dug.

This software can also track accurate shadow information for different times of the day and year so you can see how the design will complement your space.

At Shadeport we pride ourselves in providing our customers with a completely personalised design service which takes into account your individual projects budget and needs.

Generally it is desired to place the low point of any structure towards the north to allow maximum shade protection to your proposed site.
