We added a conduit metal frame with side "curtains" and a "roof" to our grow box to prevent birds from attacking our plants and to prevent the sun from attacking our plants. It works well here in sunny Arizona where temperatures get up to 115 to 120 degrees in the summer. The curtains are made of netting and are attached to the pole with shower curtain rings. The tarp is attached with bungee cords.
