Shade Cloth Uses

Discover the unbelievable properties of Red Shade Cloth. Recent studies have shown that roses flourish under the color red, yielding more blossoms and taller plants with more foilage. Black spots normally seen in the heat of summer disappear. Tomatoes also thrive under the color red. You will be the envy of the neigborhood with your tomato crop.

Blue shade cloth encourages dwarfing and flowering delay. Creates a compact plant with deeper green foilage. Grow more plants per square foot. Also looks great as a decorative touch around your home or pool.

Knitted vs. Woven Shade Cloth

What's the Difference?

Woven is constructed from woven polypropylene. It is about 30% heavier than knitted and typically costs about 30% more. The lifespan is about 10-12 years. Woven is more plastic looking than knitted and has a distinct grid of horizontal and vertical lines.

Woven cloth does have two major drawbacks. It is only available in black and will unravel if a hole occurs. Primary application is for greenhouses.

Knitted is made from knitted polyethylene and has an expected life of 7-10 years. More cloth-like to the look and feel and has threads running in various directions. Due to the construction, it will not unravel if cut or if a hole occurs.

We sell about 95% knitted due to the variety of colors and strength of the fabric. Hundreds of uses including back yard shade, windbreak, deer fencing, aviary and carports.

What Percentage Do I Need?

The percentage listed on shade cloth refers to the percentage of sunlight and corresponding UV rays blocked. 60% shade blocks 60% of the sunlight.

The most common application for shade cloth is backyard shade - over a deck, gazebo or pergola. For this application, our most popular product is the 65% Ultra Tan. Also popular are the 60% green, 50% white and 80% black. If you live in a warmer climate, you may want to consider the 87% green or 87% grey.

Other popular applications:

  • 30% Shade Cloth - Great for pond netting and for keeping larger leaves out of swimming pools. For growers, 30% is perfect for protecting your geraniums and chrysanthemums.

  • 40% Shade Cloth - Keep your veggies from burning with the 40%. Also great for lillies and bedding plants.

  • 50% Shade Cloth - Use the white 50% for a cooling backyard shade. It hotter climates, one customer from Arizona quoted "Last year, despite the hottest summer on record, because of the white 50% cloth I was able to pick tomatoes, watermelons, chard, and lima beans all the way through to October." The 50% black serves as a paintball barrier and also protects your ficus from the heat.

  • 60% Shade Cloth - The 60% green is a popular choice for backyard shade. For growers 60% works well on orchids.

  • 65% Ultra Tan Shade Cloth - The most popular choice for backyard shade. Neutral color combined with shade factor provides an awesome combination.
