My SFG setup

Post  sfgbeginner on 5/26/2014, 2:46 am

Here are pictures of my sfg setup.  Trying to think of ways and materials to use to construct hoops over the gardens to provide some shade.  Not mechanically inclined but can follow instructions LOL   Very Happy

Never mind ..... I have to figure out how to show images here.

Thanks, Sanderson .... I am on a quest today to figure out the best way to shade this for part of the day.  Will look at the links I was given.

Thanks, Sanderson !!!!

Post  sfgbeginner on 5/26/2014, 1:37 pm

OK .... went to the store and bought some pvc pipe and brackets.  They did not have any shade cloth there.  My most difficult decision now will be to decide what kind of shade cloth to get and where to get it.  I guess I will keep searching through the forum to see what others have done.  Wish me luck !!!!!!!      Smile

Type in Shade Cloth!  Gauze, burlap, window sheers, commercial shade cloth, doubled tulle (bridal veil), etc.  Happy browsing!  Very Happy

JOANN's fabrics has a 50% off on one non sale item this week.  Until Sat.  Bridal veil tulle usually runs $1.49 for 54" wide and $2.98 for the 108" wide.

Kay,  Thanks for the tip.  I could use some wider tulle so I can double-up.
