How do I secure a patio cover?
Our backyard is exposed to the setting sun which makes it very hot in the summer and bright when the sun is out. There are no trees so we purchased a patio cover to block some of the rays. The issue we have is securing the cover. We purchased pots and set poles in quickcrete, then attached the cover with the hooks to the eyelets. If there is any kind of wind, the cover moves so much, the concrete planters fall over, thus causing a mess with all the plants and furniture on the patio. There is a privacy fence, but we live on a hill and the fence would not provide us the height we need. So, I am looking for some creative ideas as to how we might secure this patio cover and be able to enjoy our backyard more! I attached a picture of what we purchased.
