    Garden Shade Cloth

    $47.40
    Our highest quality garden shade cloth is made with secure stitch technology. This stitching allows for the shade cloth to be cut into desired sizes without fraying. This 40% garden shade cloth is made specifically for growing fruits and vegetables. By only blocking out 40% of the UV light, you can protect delicate seedlings, prevent sunscald on vegetable plants, reduce evaporation, and more! Many different shade cloths are sold for garden use, but they block out too much UV light, leaving the plants to struggle and grow slowly. Our custom designed shade cloth is made to help urban growers and growers in warm climates thrive. On our farm here in Southern California, shade cloth is THE most important tool to keep our farm thriving during hot periods.
