Shade Netting


Shade netting, also known as 'Shade Cloth', has a great number of useful applications around the garden and home. The netting is ideal for Green Houses, Aviaries, Protecting Livestock, Indoor Plant and Shrub Nurseries, for Fruit and Vegetable shade covering, Patios, Courtyards, Privacy Screens, Dog Kennels, Ferneries, Caravan Annexes, Barbeque Areas, Carports, used as Windbreak and many other applications. The netting comes in Black or Green in widths of 3ft (.9m), 4ft (1.2m) and 6ft (1.8m) and comes in anything up to 100m lengths (328ft). 


Shade netting is mostly used to provide shading to crops, vegetables and trees, extending the season and therefore providing a better crop and more full harvest. Shade netting's range of benefits make it perfect for use with Green Houses, Polytunnels, Patio Frames and Garden Crop Cages . Shade Netting helps to protect less heat-tolerant crops from the harmful rays of the sun during the hot summer months and helps to keep Green Houses and Polytunnels temperate during Autumn & Spring by reducing the loss of moisture and radiant ground heat. When installing any Shade Netting, staples or cable ties should be used to attach the netting to the frame, a tight fit means that the netting will be better protected from the elements.
