Very nice. How’d you secure the shade cloth to the frame?

Thanks, I used a couple different solutions.

The right side is a tightened stainless steel wire inside a length of garden hose. The shade cloth is cable tied to the garden hose.

The left long side and the short side uses shade cloth clips (see picture)

And over the edge, where the shade cloth changes direction, I used some more cable ties to stop it from bellowing when the wind gets under

Cool - I used the same clips on my shade tunnel. Keeps it nice and taught.

Looks like your system will be a nice one! Subscribed....

I would like my next system to be around the same size. Hopefully I will find some great inspiration.

Thank you

Here some pictures the additional shade sail, first plants (to see whether anything can survive 45 degrees c) and first ammonia reading...
