    Outside LL grow area.

    So I had to make a little detour seeing as how my GH wasn't going to be finished any time soon due to finances. So I had to setup a new outside grow area.



    My goal is to build the bench and extend the shade cloth over the top of it. I have plenty of shade cloth on the other side of the GH.


    Early in in the build its looking good and I'm still designing how and what to do and how fancy to get.


    I get the frame built and start adding slats.




    Almost done laying the slats.


    After the night of day two the bench is finished. Now all I need to do is add misting system and poll for hanging plants.


    Poll is installed and shade cloth draped over.
    I tightened the shade cloth up when I re secured it down. It was too dark after moving plants out of GH to get a pic. Those have to come later.

    This build took me approx two days with the build and the third day I spent a time moving plants and draping cloth over. The entire build is made of pallet material. The only things new are the nails and screws.

    50% shade cloth. My main goal is to just protect from noon day sun. I've used lattice effectively as shade too. Let's light in but as the sun moves a different part of the plant is getting hit by light at a different time.
