Shade Installation: Drape the shade over your greenhouse and secure it with rope through the grommets. If you have roof vents, open the vents all the way, then drape the shade over the greenhouse and tie down with a small amount of slack. Anchor stakes can be twisted into the ground or eye bolts can be twisted into the wood sill plate to provide another place to attach the lines.
If your greenhouse has cresting, simply place a grooved piece of wood on top of the cresting, then drape your shade panel over your greenhouse. This will prevent the cresting from poking holes in your shade panel. Shade panel should be tied down loose enough for your automatic roof vents to open and close.
Take down, dry, fold and put away for winter. Can clean with mild soap and water.
