Out of all the screen material, tarp seems to be the best first time material for me. Ease of use and cost being the main criteria.
My plan is to get an 6x10 tarp. Attach the tarp to either fence by tying the grommets to the chain link fence using rope. I don't plan to build a frame.
My plan is to raise the tarp @ 3 feet off the ground. My fences are 6.5' high. That means that I need to figure out how to attach the 3.5' (is that correct math) of tarp at the top. OK, my question is how does one know whether to use canvas, vinyl or vinyl coated poly tarps?
It looks like canvas tarps on creativeshelters are tan, and based on research here white is best (but tan still works).
Incidentally, their shipping costs more than the actual tarp I want to purchase!
