Because my garden area faces south and west nothing would grow here. The block walls are so close they intensify the heat to the extent that even desert vegetation would not grow. Here is a solution I came up with and my husband and I went to work. We started with on 8' X 16' area as a test, when it worked we continued and now most of the south facing gardens are shaded. I am still in the process of trying plants but I am having amazing success with plants I had tried before to no avail. I hope this helps others who are facing extreme conditions to come up with ideas to enjoy your passion! Happy Gardening

Really nice, I'd love something like that for my orchids/bromeliads. Would love to see more photos too. Great job. Thumbs up
