Where to buy shade cloth?
« on: July 12, 2019, 12:58:57 AM »
Looking for a good shade cloth of around 30% to be used for a couple of 5í tall hogwire enclosures that Iím putting a couple of potted trees in. If anyone knows a good place to buy some, PLEASE let me know. If recommending Amazon, please provide link. Thank you.

I don't know how easy it will be to find 30% shade cloth, most that I've seen at stores and nurseries is between 50% and 70%, with 60% being the most common.

If you have a Harbor Freight nearby, go check out what they call Mesh Weave Tarp.  I've been using it for a couple of years, and buy more every time they have a 25%off sale.  I think it's 65% shade cloth, very good quality, comes in four or 5 sizes, has a reinforced hem with grommets.  I'm using the 8' x 16' size and it's $30 regular price so I've been paying $23-24 for it.  Harbor Freight has more sales than a dog has fleas.  Get on their mailing list and wait for the 20-25% off coupons.

greenhousemegastore is decent for shade cloth. I'm not sure how their prices compare to other dealers though. Good luck in your search
