Shade Cloth

Versatile shade cloth is a proven method of cooling plants and animals and provides better ventilation and water permeability than woven materials. It's available in a wide selection of sizes, colors and shade percentages to meet your application. View the slideshow below to see a real life example of how shade cloth can benefit you!

Red raspberry patch as a result of 2 weeks without rain
and with moderate watering

Red raspberry patch as a result of 2 weeks without rain but constant watering and covering with shade cloth

Area in upper right was shaded with a 50% shade cloth

A steel fence post was used as a vertical support topped with a piece
of 2 inch PVC and round cap on PVC pipe

A plastic grommet can be attached to the ends and sides of shade cloth
and secured with a bungee cord

With the shade cloth about 6 feet off the ground watering
is still possible with a fan spray

If the fan spray is applied on top of the shade cloth the water will
go through the shade cloth

If a spray stream is used, the water stream will also go through
the shade cloth

Shade cloth is very light and "floats" between plastic grommets

In this example, the air temperature was 100°F at noon; the ground
temperature was 135.7°F

The temperature of the berry bushes on the outside of the
shade cloth was 104.7°F

The temperature of the berry bushes under the shade cloth was 94.6°F

Enjoy!
