* Firstly insert the inner support poles, the ones that are NOT at both ends of your tunnel, by slotting one end over a Y Standard, then bending the pole to slot in the other corresponding side … width ways … Please note that this is usually a two person exercise …

* Now thread one end of the shade cloth onto one of the end support poles, then slot one end of the support pole over a Y Standard, then bend the pole to slot in the other corresponding side … again width ways …

* Now pull the shade cloth
over the inner support poles, then thread the end onto the final support pole … again slot one end onto the Y Standard, then bend the pole to slot in the other end … again width ways …

* Now insert the Link Poles in the drilled holes at the apex of the Support Poles ...

* The ends of the support poles should be 5cms to 10 cms below ground level … this will ensure that the ends of shade cloth will also be below ground level ...

* Taking one of the end pieces of shade cloth, start attaching it with the cable ties to an end support pole and main shade cloth
in the middle and then work sideways … it is important that you keep the end pieces of shade cloth square as you attach themstretch the shade cloth as you attach it ...

* Now do the same at the other end …

* At the one end of the tunnel create your doorway, by attaching an outer and inner wooden door frame in the centre … and securing it at the top to the support pole and to a wooden pole beneath ground level at the bottom … this can be constructed using rough inexpensive timber ...
*** Some GreenAgric Tunnels come standard with a Zip Opening which you can use as your main access, or at the opposite end to your wooden doorway ...

* Take the nylon cord and attach it below ground level to one of the support poles, all around the tunnel … when you pass a Y Standard, pull the cord and wrap it around the Y Standard … contnue to do this all around the tunnel ...

* Staple the end shade cloth piece to the inner and outer wooden door frames … once you have done this make a cut on the shade cloth between the wooden inner and outer frames …

* Back fill your perimeter trench … now stand back and admire your tunnel !!! …
then please take a few photos and send them to me ...

Good Luck !!! …
