But I'd prefer something that allows the wind through, but I don't know how bad the dust is, maybe something more solid would be better for keeping the dust out? Or is keeping the dust out a pipe dream and I should just go for a breathable shade structure?
We use a costco carport frame covered in 70% shade fabric over our kitchen area.
On the windward side, we double it up (140% shade, drops the temp by 40 degrees!) and it provides a decent windblock and does a remarkable job at cutting down the dust blowing through.
Until you touch it anyway...
