Slanted triangle

If you want to build a different type of sunshade (non-rectangular/square), you can choose the slanted triangle option. The angle can give you a beautiful effect on the shaded area while also letting the water runoff when it rains. A slope of approx fifteen degrees is better for proper draining of rainwater.
