These look simple enough and someone who does this kind of thing for a living could probably have some of these structures up in hours. The typical homeowner though would probably have all sorts of hassles. I could see where an enterprising handyman could make good money and not charge an arm and a leg at the same time. Kind of a win-win kind of situation potentially.

Some friends of mine in Ridgecrest will be putting up some simple shade structures late in May to protect some tomatoes, strawberries and peppers they are in the process of planting. I'll probably wind up helping out, but shade in the desert is absolutely necessary for a successful vegetable garden!
