Two shade structures for garden: one is attached to patio beam and raised bed, other is freestanding. I used cross over clamps in several places instead of cutting conduit to exact size (I wasn't sure this design was going to work and didn't want to cut pieces yet - decided to leave it that way). Maker Pipe connectors used: T-connectors, adjustable 180 degree connectors, adjustable angle flange, adjustable angle hinge connectors, structural couplings, and crossover clamps. See pics for how freestanding structure is secured to ground and stabilized against wind.
