GREENHOUSE SHADE CLOTH

Shade cloths protect the plants with light diffusion and UV protection. They also help to keep your greenhouse cool, improve plant ventilation, reduce water usage, and help to prevent sunburn on plants.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    Ask a Question
    • How long does it take for your orders to ship/arrive? ordering GREENHOUSE SHADE CLOTH - 30% BLACK. The order will consist of 2- 80'x20' sheets, and 2-80'x6'. sheets

      Our shade cloth typically ships in 4 business days as we cut most pieces to length.  We ship via UPS out of Ohio so shipping time will be dependent on your location.  Typically it is between 2-4 days of shipping time.

    • I currently want to built a 25wx80L high tunnel, what size of shade cloth do I need? And what size of green house plastic? I’m in woodland Ca, long growing season and very hot 🥵 summers.

      For shade cloth I would recommend 32' Wide. We will be listing this in the next few days.  For the greenhouse plastic it depends on the shape of your greenhouse.  The best thing to do would be to try to measure around the frame of the structure to get the width.  For the height it will just be your length (80') plus 2 times the height.

    • we need it for shading people on a 60 x 35 rectangle of concrete with poles every 10 feet....how can I mount this??? Is this shade cloth hemmed and have grommets?

      We do have shade cloth that has grommets but we would need to custom quote that piece.  All our shade cloth has sewed edges.  That can be secured with these shade cloth hold down clips.  They secure to the edges of the shade cloth and you can then hook a rope in the center groove https://www.bootstrapfarmer.com/products/cover-hold-down-clips-25-count

    • we were considering the shade cloth for the top of our pergola. do you know if rain water will pass through it?

      Yes rain water would pass through.

    • What is the unit of measurement being used when you say 6x30? feet or meters... also what colours do you have available?

      Everything is in feet and in the color black.
