    2012 brings a terrible heat wave to Wisconsin. I purchased this to help save the vegetable garden from getting cooked in 100 degree days. It worked wonderful to cut the UV rays and there is plenty of light for the garden. I did make sure the netting was 6 feet from ground level to allow for disappiating moisture and heat. The insects can get in fine to pollenate. Be aware, the outside edges are not reinforced so you need to fold them over before tying on rope. It is rather heavy so you need to prop up portions of the netting with a center support and probably side supports too. I used leftover 6 foot fence posts. Tie the netting securely so it does not rip out of its ties when there is a wind. Watering is not a problem because the holes are plenty big. This defintely saved the vegetable garden.

    I have used shade cloth for about 30 years , so when I put up this item, right away I sensed something wrong. When I use 50% cloth , I can feel sharp a drop in temperature compared to full sun. This did not happen with this item. I actually cut out a segment of my other cloth and compared the density of the net. The weave of this item was obviously less thick. I thought that perhaps the wrong cloth was sent , but the replacement that Gempler was so considerate in sending was also unsatisfactory. I don't know how one can verify this professionally, but this is my personal opinion.

            I've been trying to grow some carrots in a row that catches the full afternoon sun. It took about two weeks for the seeds to germinate and about two days for the sun to kill off the young plants. After I put this cloth over the row, I replanted and was pleased to see the carrots coming up in six days this time. After a week, I still have happy healthy young plants that are growing every day. This cloth made all the difference as far as my carrots are concerned.
