In my experience, you purchase shade cloth for a given agricultural zone relative to your location to the equator. For example, the farther away from the equator you're located, the less sun you need to block. I've used it at our farm, and it's surprising how much cooler you'll be underneath a plastic mesh!

You should be able to order it by-the-foot or by-the-roll on Amazon. If you're near a farm-and-feed store, you might consider picking their brains, too.
My friends have a great Airbnb near Mount St. Helens I highly recommend: StayAtTheRetreat.com
