Hi Ken!!
Very nice!! I was thinking of using the whit plascic lattice make a frame for mounts but I like the whole shade house of lattice
Are the corner poles 4x4's or 2x4's on my cell zooming gets a bit fuzzy so was hard to tell for me. Are the poles sunk into the ground and concreted or is a box frame sitting on top of the ground? I'm trying to figure out a practical way to construct one, I was going to this past summer but had so much going on andthen the heat waves this year so maybe this coming spring/ summer. We also have high winds here so the lattice will keep it from blowing over lol

I relly love the way yours looks!! Oh was that shade cloth up on the top or did you use some sort of sheeting poly material of sorts?

Lattice shade house

Hi,
The corners are 4 x 4 poles. The poles sit on concrete holders. Shade cloth on top.

I like the lattice...you can hand a lot of plants in a small space.

Ken
