If you have never heard of tarps or tarpaulins you might be wondering what they are for. When it comes to larger sized tarps you might be even more confused about who would need one and why. So here are some of the uses of large tarps and who might need them.
Tarps that are large can be used as ground sheets for camping. They are placed on the group and then the tent is put up over them. This will provide a waterproof layer so that campers do not get wet.
Big tarps can also be used in the building trade to cover holes that are being dug or to protect equipment overnight. Using tarps in this way is very popular and easy as they are so simple to position. They can be positioned on building sites, on the back of trucks to protect equipment or in residential settings.
Gardeners will also use large tarps that are a generous size. Some will use them to cover plants overnight that are delicate to the cold and frost. They can also be used as pond liners as pond liners need to be waterproof and tough and tarps fit the bill.
Anyone who is having roof repairs done will need a tarp that is large enough to cover the area that is being worked on overnight. Once again they can be put in place really easily and secured overnight. This will act as a barrier to the elements and stop water from getting in if it rains.
These are just a few of the uses of large tarps. As you can see they are great for protecting areas against water and the cold. They can be used by builders, gardeners campers and more. In fact with so many uses it is clear to see why they are so popular.
