Hanging Instructions

When hanging shade cloth pieces larger than 100 sq. ft., you may need extra center support to prevent the cloth from sagging in the middle. One easy way to do this is by running lightweight cable from corner to opposite corner, forming an X pattern that the cloth can rest on. For pieces larger than 400 sq. ft., you may need cables running end to end every 4' or so.

  • Best money I ever spent!
    This 70% shade cloth does an amazing job of keeping the heat off the side of my house and providing a cool place for my big Bernese Mountain Dogs. Best money I ever spent. Great quality and appearance. I would highly recommend.
  • The width and lenght
    The width is 12' but the length is not 20' it is about 19'. Great screen just wish it fit better. I had ordered one last year same dimensions and it was the correct measurements.
  • yardenergal
    Great product which lasts a long time
  • Fit my application perfectly.
    Great purchase!
  • Greenhouse cover
    Great quality just what I ordered, fits my green house great, looks good on and is doing a great job keeping it cooler, the hot sun does not shine in and burn my plants
  • Shade Cloth
    Very nice. Had to stretch the cloth to make it fit, but that gave it a nice appearance. Easy to install with two people.
  • nice shade cloth!
    This is my second green shade cloth purchased from Greenhouse Megastore, and I'm very happy with both of them. They are very nicely finished on the edges; the grommets are great; and the one I bought a year ago is holding up very well in some challenging weather conditions (severe heat in summer, freezing in winter). I would not hesitate to recommend these shade cloths!
  • Great shade cloth
    I really love the quality of construction. The edges were folded and stitched with lots of grommets. I use it in greenhouse and to give shade to chickens and koi pond here in Florida
  • 12 x 12 fabric cover
    The cover worked out Great with my Greenhouse. It also blends in with my back yard. A perfect addition. I will buy the cover again when it wares outIn the Arizona Sun.
  • shadecloth used for ground cover
    Used as ground cover for a football tailgate area. Good Quality. Works Perfectly. Much lighter weight and bulk than turf.
  • Alternate Use
    I purchased the 70% shade cloth as a sun screen for an elevated deck. It works exactly as I had hoped it would. I can highly recommend this product.
  • sun shade
    Used it for pool deck cover, works great. Price was good,service was good
  • Perfect
    Just what we needed to cover our stock tank swimming pool. The grommets are well made into the binding, If I ever need another this is where I will order from.
  • Patti
    This is our 4th Shade Cloth from Greenhouse Megastore. Very pleased as usual. Greenhouse Megastore is our go-to place for most of our Garden Center and greenhouse needs!
  • Shade Cloth
    It does all that I wanted. It stands up well on windy days and being able to see through it is nice. But it is not water-proof. This should be obvious and yet I was surprised.
  • Great Pruchase
    We put this on top of our pergola, it is great, provides shade and yet lets air in. We are very pleased with this purchase.
  • Extremely Good Value
    Our shade cloth arrived on time, the quality exceeded our expectations, and it is now shading our greenhouse plants for the summer. Great buy!
  • Shade when needed
    Recently purchased shade cloth is providing needed shade for our deck arbor as hoped. Looks neat and attractive in place.
  • Hobby Farmer
    Good quality product for a fair price.
  • Shade Cloth, 70% Green - 6' wide x 12' long, fabri
    Arrived as advertised. Fast shipping. Quality seems good. The grommets are all evenly spaced and the seams are all in good shape. Only time will tell how well it holds up to weather and hard UV exposure.
  • Shade Cloth
    This product is ideal for any shade application such as for pergolas. greenhouses, decks etc. Quality is tops e.g. I have a greenhouse covered in a 16'x16' 70% green that stays on all year. The first one lasted 10 yrs and stayed put all year!Rain and wet drips through and even marble sized hail did not hurt it. Great value!!!!
  • wonderful
    This wonderfully well made shadecloth has saved my orchids and other plants from the scorching sun of florida.. so well made, and a breeze to install...great product, fast shipping..thank you!!
  • exactly as described.
    Fast delivery and it already had grommets which made it easy to hang.
  • 70% Green Shade Cloth
    I received the cloth five days after my order and have been pleased with its quality. The edge reinforcement was folded securely over the edge of the shade cloth and had a double row of stitching to attach it. Additionally, the solid brass grommets, every foot, will allow me to attach it securely to my mechanism. Looking forward to years of use.
  • Perfect
    Met expectations, quality product
  • Shade Cloth
    Great product. Just as advertised. Really cooled off our area.
  • Sunscreen
    Excellent purchase! Absolute best quality!
  • Great Looking Shade Cloth
    I am very pleased with my purchase of this shade cloth. I ordered a 12 ft. X 12 ft. and it fits perfect. I ordered the green color, 70% shade. I look forward to having it for many years, as the construction is good, and there are plenty of gromets on the edges. Money well spent.
  • very cool fabric
    Fabric arrive on time and as promised. I have used it for 1 month now and the plants love it. The plants would be burned up by now if not for the shade fabric.
  • Great sun shade
    Sun was scorching my Azaleas.put the Green Sun shade up next to the garage and pinned the bottom down with tent pegs, works Great!
  • Does the job
    Works well as shade for our animals. Has eyelets already in place, so we use it with plastic fenceposts to make small shade tents for our poultry. They seem to enjoy it and are less stressed than before we added the shade. We have been using them for a couple months now without any problems or malfunctions.
  • Extremely satisfied
    I purchased the green 70% Tarp. It seems to be of good quality, mine was a special size.It took 10 days from order date till I received it. Size was the exact dimensions I ordered.I am very pleased with this product & company
  • 70% green shade cloth
    worked perfectly for what i needed it to do. 12' x 20' over top of a small pond to cut down on algae growth.
  • shadecloth
    Perfect to deflect the hot, bright rays of the sun from my rabbit hutches in the afternoon.
  • 5x8 green landscape 70% cloth
    I am actually using the cloth on my sail boat to filter out most of the sun. It's a perfect size and does the job that I wanted it to. It's much cooler in my boat since I put it up. The quality is excellent as it's been up for a month with no sighs of wear.
  • Shade Cloth 70% - 12x12 Green
    Recently received the cloth and put it on top of a pergola. I was amazed at how much heat the cloth diffused. It works great. The quality of the material is very good, lightweight and great color. Since I just received the cloth a couple of weeks ago, I cannot comment on the durability, but I'm sire it will be fine judging by the quality of craftsmanship and appearance. Shipping was fast and complete. The professionalism of the company was outstanding. A pleasure to do business with such a company.
  • Shade Cloth, 70% Green - 20'wide x 20' long, fabri
    Well made, perfect fit, shipped & arrived quickly!
  • An excellent compromise
    As often happens in home improvement projects my plans exceeded my budget. I opted to delay my dream of a custom built patio cover but we still need protection from the hot sun. The shade cloth worked out well for us. It is extremely well made and the nylon binding is very strong and the grommets are well placed. I secured the 4 corners with springs so it stays tight. The cloth is 18 feet wide so I ran two lines of nylon rope about 4 feet in from each of the 10 foot sides to support the center of the cloth. Lining the ropes up with and using zip ties to secure them to grommets allow the cloth to billow up in the breeze but keep it well above head height and give the canopy an attractive scalloped look. Of course there will be no rain protection but we don't have much in Southern California but a 70% decrease in the hot sun light is much appreciated. All and all an excellent compromise that turned out to looking better than I had hoped.
  • Shade cloth
    Works wonderful over my puppy kennel! Keeps the heat way down. I recommend this product highly.
  • Shade Cloth Size
    The only problem I had with the shade cloth is that is was not the size that was advertized. I ordered a 12' X 18' and received a 11'6 X 17'6 which was not what was advertized as the size. I needed the full 18' to totally cover my sun room. Also one of the corner grommets tore when attaching to the building.
  • hobby farmer
    Was able to screw tarp to top rail of my enclosure using the 12 spaced grommets. Great quality product. Keeps my chickens in and the hawks out.
  • Greenhouse Shade
    Good fit, and extra brass grommet holes made for a good secure hold. Well see how it holds up now in the AZ sun.
  • Vegie garden shade cover
    great qualityexelent service
  • Just what we were looking for
    We put up a Pergola on our deck last year and were very disappointed that there was still too much sun on our desk. Once we received our 70% Green sun screen we simply used zip ties to attach it to the Pergola and BAM! Instant Shade. It took about ten minutes to install and can easily be taken down in the winder for storage. This is great!!!
  • Very good !!!!
    I am amazed at how much this cover has cut down the temp. in my green house. With the door open it remains about the same inside as out. Before the cover, it would be 80 to 90 deg. out side and 110 to 120 inside. Today it was 96 out and 95 inside. Very satisfied.
  • Shade Cloth
    The shade cloth is absolutely necessary, otherwise, to prevent the greenhouse from overheating.
  • Shade cloth
    12x12 green shade cloth 70%. As described. Very Satisfied.Reb
  • Julia
    This is a great product. We were looking for something to provide shade for our chicken run and this fit the bill. It provides a cool area for the chickens.
  • dog kennel shading
    This is the 2nd shade cloth we've purchased from you for our dog kennels. Very pleased with quality of product. We would like this product avaialable in an 80% shade. The 70% does not block the hot Virginia sun enough in the summer.
  • works great
    After putting the shade cloth over the greenhouse roof, my ventilation fan went from 8 hours a day to rarely on.
  • homeowner
    We have no idea why it took us 7 years to finally install a shade cloth! This has been a very hot summer in upper New York (we are 1/2 hour from Canada). The temperature on our deck, with the cloth, is about 10 degrees cooler than the temperature of that day. We are recommending them to everyone.
  • pergola shade
    I was extremely happy with the quality of the shade. The size was exactly what I requested and the workmanship was very high. I will defiantly recommend your product to future buyers.
  • the person that paid the bill
    I didn't care for the black boarder. would haveliked to match the canvascolor. That's it, everything else is OK.
  • Shade cloth
    Quality,well made and sewn, gromets are perfect for what I need. Cuts the heat in the greenhouse by 20%
  • Works great on my kennel!
    I replaced a conventional tarp with 70% green shade cloth to provide a shaded area in my dog's kennel. The 6' x 12' size shades over half the kennel. It's light weight and easy to install using bungee cords. No rainwater accumulates on it as on a tarp; I'm very satisfied with this purchase.
  • Shade Cloth
    Love it! We have a south facing deck, and the summer sun is too intense to enjoy just sitting on the deck.This works perfectly to make it cooler and more comfortable to spend some down time on the deck.
  • Stock shade cloth
    High quality, fast shipping, I like the website and will do business with the company again in the future.
  • 3+ years and still like new
    Summers with over 100 degrees weather. Times with very high winds and a few storms with heavy rain. This cloth is awesome. Not a single problem. I made a cut in the wrong place and thought it would probably start ripping under stress. It's still there as I made it; no stretching or ripping. It's resistance to our very strong sun is amazing.
  • Greenhouse Shade Fabric
    In April, 2012 I ordered the 70% shade frabic for shade for my dog kennel. It arrived promptly, exactly as ordered, and serves my needs perfectly. Thanks
  • long-time gardener
    I purchases this shade cloth based on other reviews and am glad I did. The product is very well-constructed with lots of grommets. The binding is excellent. It is well worth the price and I would recommend it to others.
  • SHADE CLOTH
    SHADE CLOTH 12X16 WITH BRASS GROUMETS WAS TO EXACT SIZE AND DOES WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO DO(BLOCK OUT 70% SUN).VERY GOOD PRODUCT.GOOD QUALITY MATERIAL.
  • Great Product
    I bought this shade cloth to shade my chickens for this awful sun and heat we are having here in Virginia,It works perfect ,It makes it about 20* cooler for them .I could not be more pleased with the shade cloth.After ordering the shade cloth I received it very quickley.Thank to the Folks at Greenhouse Megastore.I love your product.Sincerely Anne M. Miller
  • Business owner
    Good product at a great price but the packing is sub-par. It was crammed in a box instead of rolled witch has made tackling my project just a bit more overwhelming. I haven't stretched it out yet and rolled it up so I can use it.
  • great product
    this is the best shade cloth i have ever used very easy to cut and it does not fray it looks much better than the black and provides the perfect amount of shade here in the south allowing us to grow lettuce all summer long its also very durable i highly reccomend it
  • Shade Cloth
    Shade cloth has lowered my 100 + temperatures in my greenhouse by about 20 degrees during this hot spell we are having in June in Alabama. Sizes were perfect and easy to attach with grommets pre-sewn. Great product.
  • shade cloth
    I ordered my shade cloth to fit a 12x20 carport canopy. It was a perfect fit. It was made well, edges were strongly bound and had plenty of grommets.
  • Greenhouse Megastore quality
    I rely upon the high quality cuts, binding, and grommeting on shade cloth used for my 20' by 35' Tucson garden. The heat and direct sun in this area makes gardening a challenge. When we built a fully enclosed garden, the roof was made with 70% Green Shade Cloth that had been bound and grommeted. The installation was easy and neighbors & strangers visit the garden with comments about the cool oasis feel. The vegetables and flowers flourished even in the hottest, dry weather. I decided to add extra panels this year and ordered again from Greenhouse Megastore. The orders are always correct, neatly packed, and promptly shipped. Many thanks to your store and your friendly associates.
  • Shade cloth extends deck usage
    Purchased shade cloth to provide relief from the sun when we sit on the deck. Difficult to describe , but the shade cloth is overhead on tracks attached to the beams of our pergola. We can slide them back when we don't need them, but since our deck is exposed to direct sunlight all day during the summer, they are used daily. The shade cloth protects us from the sunlight and makes the deck noticably cooler so we are more likely to enjoy being outside. The shade cloth has made the difference between being able to sit on the deck versus remaining in the house to avoid the sun and heat.
  • 70% Green cloth
    Good Service,good product. Thanks
  • Well satisfied
    The quality of the screen cloth was superior to what I had been using and delivery was prompt. You can,t ask for more. Thank you. I will certainly return.
  • ShadeCloth
    This is a life saver for our greenhouse. I wish it recommended the J hooks required to attach it and offered to sell them. I spend an hour at Lowe's sorting through dozens of differnt hooks. I wonder if white would have reflected more heat. It is still very warm inside the greenhouse.
  • Excellent product and customer service
    I purchased 4 custom sizes and 2 pre-made size shades with grommets. They were well made and an excellent value for what I needed. I was not clear on one of my sizes and when it arrived, it was not what I wanted. When I called customer service, the service I received was second to none. I am looking at purchasing some more in the future and I will definitely use Greenhouse Megastore for those purchases. Great product, great price, great service.
  • Hot in Texas
    I love my shade cloth! It came in the exact size I needed. I imagined a shaded green house to protect my vegetable garden. So with some PVC piping and rebar and your wonderful shade cloth I got my greenhouse. It is working great. My garden is protected from the Texas sun. Today, it's hot and sunny and my garden is doing great. I was very happy with the quality of the clothe and the reinforced edging. The Texas sun can eat up everything with time. It appears durable and I have hopes of it lasting for quite a while. Thanks again.
  • Great Product
    The product is great. Definitely keeps the area considerably cooler. Garden is doing great in 90+ degree heat. Can't describe the difference that the cover has made! Even working under the cover has made a difference.

  • Great shade
    This is an excellent shade for my greenhouse we built, I have roses, and lots of vegetables growing and they are doing very well, it is very hot here 101 and higher, I would recommended this product to anyone great shade. thank you
  • Excellent Product
    Excellent material. Binding and grommets are of high quality. Excellent fit over out new cedar polycarbonate greenhouse. We are very pleased with this product.
  • Great shade screen
    My first shade covered area I had to use two 6 foot wide by 22 feet of shade cloth. this worked but visually it was not a clean solution. The 12 foot wide shade cloth worked out so much better and it looks great.
  • Green Cover
    This has a nice look and is very good quality. I think I should have gone with a higher UV rating to get a little more shade, 80% instead of 70%.
  • Lifesaver on Sailboat in Mexico!
    I cut pieces of this material and used for shade cloth on my sailboat in Mexico's Sea of Cortez. Wow, what a difference. 115 degree days became tolerable! At anchor or under sail, using this cloth for sun shades allowed hot air to flow up through and also didn't act like a sail. I used it for over 2 years there and the same stuff for 4 years in California for sun awnings. Finally sold it to a fellow boater who now thinks I'm a god. Now, I am using it on my new sailboat, at my farm for gardens, sun awnings, and shady spots. Saves a fortune in utilities and discomfort!
  • Great shade cloth
    I have made two purchases of green shade cloth and I got both orders within a week. This really helps against the hot Texas sun. Great for my dog kennel.
  • Well worthwhile
    Very pleased with the quality and the fact that it doesn't rip when trimmed.
  • cooler deck spaces
    We purchased a new home on a treeless lot which makes some very hot summertime conditions. Until our trees can provide a shade, using shade cloth has made our deck a living space anytime of the day. I am expecting neighbors to repeat our solution for a summertime shade.
