    DIY Low Tunnels 

    Protect your seedlings from extreme temperatures, insects, and sunscald. Low tunnels give you many of the benefits of a hoop house without a big investment of space or money. Once built, these low tunnels are easy to move between garden beds or rows of crops. 

    Snap on clamps make it easy to switch coverings from greenhouse plastic in the coolness of early spring to shade cloth in the heat of summer.


    This low tunnel kit along with our 4' bender is everything you need to build a portable low tunnel in 10’ or 20’ lengths. Choose between shade cloth, insect netting, frost blanket or plastic sheeting for coverage. Use our detailed instructions to bend your own hoops and install connectors to make a sturdy low tunnel.
