    It is 105+ here, which means 115 in the sun! I hung sun screen from Home Depot all along my fence line using teeny spring clips - was easy! They are in the tool dept. and are cheap, thought I'd pass this along in case anybody is looking for an ez way to provide shade. I'm an unhandy gal, so I was happy to find another tool to add to my essential fix it box - right next to the duct tape, zip ties, and baling twine. [​IMG]

    Get the black, it looks way better than the light stuff. It comes in a roll, but don't be fooled by the length, it unfolds three times longer:).

    When it rains... does water go thru it?

    It does, but it does help with wind.
