Jon Lamb wrote an interesting article about garden shade in the Adelaide Advertiser recently entitled “Gardening: Creating a shady character“.
The article highlights the differences between shade sails and shade cloth, primarily that shade sails are designed to block out more UV which is dangerous to humans but beneficial to plants.
It has a really good guide for the levels of shade advised for different types of plants including vegetable gardens.
At 1800 Shade U we can advise on the best positioning and fabrics for your shade structures so that you can have the best of both worlds – human comfort and a healthy garden.
