What is a Shade House?

While not recommended it may be that a school prefers to construct a shade house rather than install a Plant Growing Unit (PGU). There are a number of commercial designs available (Search – Shade House). The cost will vary depending on the size and nature of the Shade House.

The Auckland Regional Council produced guidelines for the construction of a shade house and these can be downloaded here. Note that the prices quoted will now be out of date.
