    I don't know what a transparent awning is  :|

    Why do want one?

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    No.  If it's in place all summer your garden will dry out and die.

    Permanent awnings, or sails, are really only good for terraces where everything is in pots and you take care of the watering.

  • Bit like @Fairygirl in wondering how a transparent awning would work and where you would site it. The pic shows a nicely planted garden which obviously benefits from the climate.
    If you are after a permanently "dry " space, perhaps a latticed arbour with some evergreen climbers ?
    Otherwise, as @Obelixx says, you will need to consider your watering regime.

    Easy peasy. A transparent awning is an awning that is transparent. ;)
    Why the OP is asking this question rather baffles me. Wait for the ad?

    @Papi Jo- I'm convinced there's an ad coming, but you know how it is - giving folk the benefit of the doubt and all that  ;)

    I must be in a good mood  :D

  • @Fairygirl and @Papi Jo.............I obviously need to up my game here ........I just assumed it was a genuine query albeit a tads weird.
    Looking at the OP's previous query, the transparent awning will probably be part of the Hornet/Wasp control plan..........No, I've no idea either.............He/She/It may be better off considering the Locust problem :D

    Give them the benefit of the doubt @philippa smith2 and then be vigilant for SPAM

  • hey guys i took off the hornets or i don't know what insects they might be..if you ask me how just pm me.

    I just wanna cover the plants but it seems not right after all. Maybe a mesh net.

    Why i got to feel that this gardenersworld seems like a battlefield landscape?

    @rachelleyar  If you cover your plants how are the insects going to pollinate them?  Plants need insects. 
    Why do you want to get rid of them?
