Pergolas and other built structures provide height and solid overhead planes, but they need support and can fill small gardens with posts. Instead, consider suspending temporary canopy screens to create shade and make the garden feel more intimate. Lightweight sail-like screens need to be attached securely, but they can also be taken down when not in use.
