The right shade cloth for your garden - what to look for

When selecting the perfect shade cloth for your garden, understanding the nuances of shade percentages and colours is key. Unlike traditional woven fabrics, Pillar’s shade cloth is skillfully knitted, offering an array of benefits for your outdoor haven. One of the most crucial factors to consider is the shade cloth’s density, which determines how much sunlight it blocks.

Let’s delve into the specifics and find the ideal shade cloth for your needs.

Our shade cloth range is crafted from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). It is engineered to withstand the harshest summer heat, ensuring your plants remain vibrant and healthy. Moreover, our shade cloth acts as a formidable weather barrier, shielding your outdoor spaces from sunlight and damaging UV rays.

Shade Cloth density: Navigating the percentages

The percentage of shade cloth refers to how much sunlight it filters. For most applications, a 30-50% shade cloth is a versatile choice that strikes a balance between sun protection and light exposure. However, we understand that every garden is unique, which is why we offer an extensive range of options.

  • 30% Shade Cloth: Versatile and widely favoured, this shade cloth range is ideal for vegetables, fruit trees, and nurseries. Beyond sun protection, it also safeguards your produce from curious birds.
  • 50% Shade Cloth: The perfect middle ground, offering balanced protection for various plants and garden spaces.
  • 70% Shade Cloth: Often utilised in greenhouses, this shade cloth provides ample protection while allowing enough sunlight for optimal plant growth.
  • 90% Shade Cloth: Shade living and entertaining areas from heat and UV rays. Can be used as privacy screens and dividers or weather barriers.

Unveiling the colours: Complementing your space

Elevate the aesthetics of your garden with shade cloth that seamlessly blends in. Our shade cloth is available in colours meticulously chosen to complement Colorbond® steel shades such as Cottage Green®, Classic Cream™, and Woodland Grey®. Not only does our shade cloth protect, but it also enhances the visual appeal of your outdoor environment.

Where can you use Shade Cloth?

Shade cloth’s versatility knows no bounds. Here are some prime applications where shade cloth can make a significant impact:

  • Protecting delicate plants from intense sunlight
  • Creating comfortable shaded areas for relaxation
  • Providing essential shade for greenhouses, nurseries, and commercial spaces
