Installation Process

1. Select and prepare your land

Your nursery location must be suitable and in good shape.

2. Prepare the tools and equipment to be used

These are the tool lists you’ll need to install the nursery shade cloth:

  • A meter tool for adjusting the size and measurement of shade cloth in relation to its frame.
  • Scissors to be used to cut shade cloth and iron wire.
  • A ladder that makes it easier to reach high places.

You are now ready to begin working on the shade cloth for the vegetable garden after preparing the materials and tools.

3. Set the physical layout of the nursery

We cut distorted poles to around 40cm in length and use them as pegs in the corners of our nursery. Place them in every location where we intend to install a wooden pole.

4. Dig the holes

Dig holes in order to erect our wooden poles. The holes should be somewhat larger than 150mm (15cm) in diameter and 600mm deep (60cm). They should be able to accommodate the poles that will be utilized.

5. Cutting the poles

In this stage, you must ensure that the shade fabric is properly sized. If it’s not the appropriate size, it’ll appear sloppy and you won’t be able to utilize it as intended.

Complete the following to get an exact measurement:

  • To determine the size of the shade fabric, use the meter tool.
  • Cut the shade cloth to the appropriate size.

6. Constructing the shade structure

Place the poles in the holes. Ensure the treated parts are the ones in the holes. After placing all of the poles in their corresponding holes, compress the earth to ensure that the poles stand strong and straight upright.

Now nail the holes together to join them. The nails should be 6 inch long and its best to use stainless steel nails.

7. Determining the cloth size

In this stage, you must ensure that the shade fabric is properly sized. If it’s not the appropriate size, it’ll appear sloppy and you won’t be able to utilize it as intended.

You should complete the following to get an exact measurement:

  • To determine the size of the shade fabric, use the meter tool.
  • Cut the shade cloth to the appropriate size.

8. Install side nets with terraces

Carefully put the side nets around the structure. Check that the fabric is securely fastened to the frame.

Place the roof netting carefully above the structure. Make sure the fabric is firmly attached to the frame.

10. Install drip kits inside your nursery
