Some plants are sensitive to intense sunlight. We have to protect them from drying up. We need to have a cooler place for them without the hassles of transferring from time to time. Plants also need protection from birds and other animals that may destroy crops. Riverstone Black Woven Shade Cloth can do the job for you.
The Riverstone line of shade clothes is designed to give shade and protection anywhere you want it. This cloth is easy to use. It is UV-stable and will last for a long time. All woven shade clothes are proudly made from US-manufactured black woven Polypropylene strands. The woven cloth makes it firm and strong to give a sufficient airflow at the same time.
All shade cloth comes with rust-resistant brass grommets for securing the shade cloth. The grommets are set approximately 2ft apart around the border of each shade cloth.
The Riverstone Black Woven Shade Cloth helps to continue growing period and protects assets from bird-related damage. The shade cloth keeps plants, people and animals cool and reduces moisture loss. It gives better ventilation than other substances.
Riverstone offers its shade clothes in different sizes. Available widths are 6ft, 8ft, 10ft, and 12ft and seven assorted lengths (10ft, 12ft, 15ft, 18ft, 20ft, 25ft, and 30ft).
The shade clothes are also available in many different shade-blocking percentages. The percentages reflect the amount of shade that is being provided. For instance, a 30% shade cloth would block out 30% of the light, where an 80% shade cloth would prevent out up to 80% of the light. This also shows how tightly the shade clothes are made.
Note: This product ships on Tuesdays and Thursdays only and can take 8-10 days because the cloth is custom cut.
