The arrival of spring means that it’s time to consider what needs to be done to your outdoor space so its ready to be enjoyed. However, spring weather in Canada is often unpredictable. Heavy rainfall and cool winds can ruin patio furniture or interrupt a barbecue and force you to quickly move inside. Because of our changeable spring weather, installing retractable awnings in Canada will allow you to spend more time outdoors, even during rainy spring weather.

5 Ways To Enjoy Your Retractable Awning This Spring
If you’re still wondering how you would use a retractable awning in Toronto and the surrounding areas to boost your outdoor enjoyment this spring, here are some ideas to inspire you.
- Barbecue. When spring arrives, backyard barbecues are a great way to get friends or family together and reconnect after winter hibernation. But barbeques can be a bit of a struggle with spring showers and unpredictable weather patterns. A retractable awning will provide you and your guests with some shade and allow you to keep grilling (and stay dry!) even if it’s raining.
- Host a formal dinner party. Hosting a dinner party, complete with elaborate menus and elegant place settings, can be a lot of fun, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. When you have a retractable awning, there’s no reason to keep your guests cooped up indoors. Set the party up outdoors and enjoy the peace of mind to be able to choose sunshine or shade with the press of a button.
- Get your garden ready. Preparing planters and flower pots can be time consuming and hard on your back and knees. With an awning, you can bring your new gardening projects to the protected area, which means you will no longer have to spend hours in the sweltering sun. Grab a comfortable seat on your patio furniture and enjoy planting in the shade produced by your awning.
- Let the kids play outside. Kids love being outside, but in the warmer months parents worry about avoiding sunburns, mud, and rain. When you have an awning, you’ll have a safe and dry area where kids can get a healthy dose of fresh air while being protected from the sun and rain.
- Read. If you’re an avid reader, you probably have a favourite spot on the couch where you can sit and enjoy a good book all winter long. But now that it’s spring, you can enjoy the outdoors while you read. However, reading outside can be a struggle due to the glare of the sun. With an awning, you won’t have to worry about straining to see the words on a page or your Kobo eReader.
