I have limited space so line my privacy fence with 1x8 boxes. The good news is that it makes it easy to apply a shade cloth setup.

Is that a shade cloth or a tarp? Looks awfully opaque to me.

It's shade cloth. Purchased a roll from Amazon. I liked the hunter green verses beige.
I did have to cut and add grommets but that was simple.
I think it's 80% UV.

Must be the camera, then, that makes it look so dark beneath. I was gonna suggest punching a bunch of holes!
