What makes our shade cloth different than others?

  1. Secure stitch technology allows pre-cut panels to be cut and used in any shape or size, great for the backyard grower and urban farmer.
  2. 40% UV blockage is the best for growing vegetables, reducing sunlight transmission while still allowing for rapid plant growth and optimal photosynthesis.
  3. Light, flexible, and slightly stretchy material allows for the shade cloth to be draped, strung, hung, or tied to posts. The lightweight design also makes storing shade cloth in the off-season easy!

Sold in 6-foot wide 6 x 10-foot long panels.

What can shade cloth be used for? Shade cloth is used in the following ways on our farm:

  1. Shade and protect delicate seedlings when first transplanted.
  2. Increase germination rates on direct-sown crops by reducing soil evaporation.
  3. Protect bell peppers and other crops from sunburn.
  4. Extend the season for cool-season crops like lettuces and leafy greens.
  5. Reduce the frequency of irrigation.
  6. Allow for cool-season crops to be started in a shade house with 40% shade cloth on it during hot, dry California fall weather.

  1. 5 out of 5

    This worked brilliantly to reduce the heat stress on my plants during the peak summer heat in the Inland Empire in summer 2020 while letting the plants thrive. Our temperatures reached as high as 117 degrees F. I attached the shade cloth to 4 wooden poles inserted into the ground by wrapping each corner of the shade cloth around each pole and holding the ends closed with binder clips. This shade cloth appears to be excellent quality and lasted well through the season. I definitely plan on setting it out again this summer.
