Our greenhouse shade cloth is UV stabilized, rot and mildew resistant, and has an 8-year warranty with a 16-year life expectancy. Shade cloth is an important component of your greenhouse to keep your plants safe during the intense summer heat.
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.
You will want the cloth to cover from hip to hip on your hoop house or cover loosely over the desired area that needs protection.
