Mesh Products for Grass Protection
What do you think is the best color for grass protection mesh in summer? Black? White?
The answer is GRAY or BLUE!
Grass needs visible light length (380~780nm) for growing.
On the other hand, ultra violet has a bad effect on grass growing.
(1) Black mesh can block ultraviolet (81.7%: blocking ratio).
At this point, black is good for grass health.
But, black is the most heat absorbable color.
So the black mesh gets so hot, and it can cause grass withering.
Now, how about white?
It looks good for plants and white doesn’t get hot.
But ultra violet can go through white mesh (57.1%: blocking ratio).
So, white is not appropriate for grass protection too.
(2) Gray and blue are suitable for grass protection.
Both colors don’t get too hot. And they pass through the light accordingly.
Not too much Ultra violet, but also not too less visible light.
