Please describe the project specifications

This was our 2nd project for Twomey Cellars. They loved what Shade Sails did for their Healdsburg tasting patio. The challenge in this project was working with the existing square segmented walkway with a center focal point. Even though there appears to be a lot of shade, the old Oak tree that is looming above only has a year or 2 left until it will be removed. When that happens, the full shade potential of this array will find it's legs. The customer was very happy with the final design and shade coverage.

What is unique or complex about the project?

We have history with this customer so we moved into this project smoothly. This project sets itself apart with a very challenging geometrical landscape environment. It went thru the most design revisions any project ever has. They were very happy with how it complimented their architecture.
