Have you ever thought of planting trees near your home? If you do, it will provide shade for you during the hot summer months. When trees are tall and thick, they can provide quite a bit of shade and keep you cool. It is important that you get a professional recommendation on the trees that will work best for you. You could even have a nursery come to your granny flat for better recommendations about what to plant and where to plant them. We advise against doing this yourself unless you find very reliable information on your own.
