How can I provide a patio with the most shade?

Patios - north or east facing

Patios that invite shade are suitable for hot regions…these patios should face north or east. A northern exposure is the coolest. Sections of a patio close to a north wall may never see the sun, but an eastern outlook will welcome the
cooler morning sun and ward off the hot evening rays. In cold climates, facing the patio north may require auxiliary heating and may never dry in winter.
