How to Measure Your Clothesline For a Cover
We purchased this clothes line cover for our old metal Hills Hoist clothesline to provide our yard (particularly the grass) with shade. Our grass wasn't coping with the hot summer days and was dying off. From that perspective the shade has worked wonders and we now have a green patch of grass under the clothesline.
The only issue I have is with the size of the cover. For our 4.8m clothesline we needed to get the 5.48m shade cloth. We understood that the cover would be bigger than our line and would overhang, but there aren't enough ties for the size of the line. In the middle of the sides it folds back under the line that its tied to and dips, making it impossible to use the outer line. My hubby is looking to rig something up, but for the money we paid I would have expected a few extra ties along the size given the length. 2 ties between arms works for the smaller covers, but you need more for the larger distances. We have hung clothes out on the line and my hubby is very happy that we don't have to stand in the harsh sun while hanging it out, and the kids love playing under it as well. It does offer a considerable amount of shade and cooling to an otherwise unshaded backyard, and we've had no issues with the clothes drying.
Overall 4/5 stars - would have given 5/5 stars if there had been more ties and we didn't have to make modifications to a $320 purchase.
Lifestyle - Thanks for the feedback Melissa we really appreciate it. Unfortunately our supplier does not make the 4.8m cover anymore which is why you had to get the bigger one. Other cover styles are available that would have fitted your size line better. Thanks again. Melissa on 23rd Jan 2014
I purchased this product for shade for my family day care and it was absolutely the best investment I made... Very happy with look and practicality Narelle lascelles on 4th Nov 2013
My Hills Hoist is extremely old and looked pretty bad. It is hidden away down the garden
I am really happy with the shade cover and really like seeing it there.
Apart from protecting the clothes it gives a huge amount of shade in a very hot part of the garden.
For the first few days I used to go down the garden just to see it which a bit sad!

I bought this product for my daughter-in-law. it was easy to install, is well constructed and looks great. It keeps us cooler when we hang out the washing, cools the artificial grass underneath and protects the clothes from harsh sun. It also provides additional shade for the children to play in the back yard. The overall effect transforms our backyard space. Thank you Lifestyle Cotheslines. V. S. Perth WA on 8th Jan 2013
I didn't think the cover was going to arrive in time for our party as I hadn't heard that it was on it's way, and then great excitement to find it in the letterbox with days to spare. It looks so good covering the ugly old clothes hoist by our barbecue area, now with flowering hanging baskets underneath and comfy chairs in the shade it adds an extra dimension to our outdoor living space.

I think they are a brilliant invention, and so safe because they are made from strong shadecloth which means they don't become unstable in windy weather. Looking out at it in my garden, with the small table and chairs under it, makes me smile every time. The garden is that much more liveable in during those hot summer months, AND the cover prevents clothes taking such a beating from the sun. They just dry but don't bleach.
The only addition I would make is to have a couple of extra ties in the centre so that it's easier to 'centre' the middle of the cloth, but that's a minor issue.
I am really happy with my buy!

What a wonderful idea and extremely well made. My friends also think it is a great idea especially in a small garden with not enough room for both a market umbrella and a rotary clothes line
Thank you tii for the very prompt delivery, exceptional Jacqueline Heffernan on 4th Sep 2012
What a great idea, we brought a cover in the shade cloth, as per the instructions for measuring, it was too small, but then returned it to get the next size up, it fits perfectly, the distributor was fantastic, no problem. We think it is the best thing, it looks great in the yard as well. Friends have made comments and want to know where we got it. Very Happy with it. Thank you. Brenda on 6th Feb 2012
This cover is excellent in windy conditions, being a shade cloth it allows the majority of wind to pass straight through it.
