You should be able to do this for $30(tarp) + $25 (PVC) + $20 (rebar) + $10 (rope) = $85. I would spend the extra $40 to add another rib and another 5′ of length, personally.
- How long are the rebar spikes? Is a foot sufficient?
I would think 2 footers would do for rebar. It’s cheaper to get it in 10′ lengths and cut, but they sell them in 2′ lengths as well.
- What’s a clove hitch?

- There’s no crossing over of PVC pipes? Just 3 in parallel, one on each side and one down the middle?
Can you provide step-by-step instructions? I would surely mess it up trying to interpret this!
All PVC is parallel
l, as you say. Going with 4 ribs, although more material expense, would give you a larger shade area and more stable structure.
I will try and post a parts list and erection instructions in a bit.
