Summer is fast approaching time to start germination of seeds, and it’s time to start considering what plants and vegetables you’re going to want this season. As you’re deciding on the different types of plants you want, you may be considering whether you will have enough space, will you have enough sunlight and whether or not the plants would be safe from insects? It’s a sensible thought, and we’re right there with you.
We believe that choosing the correct greenhouse is an essential part of any garden, and there’s no better time than now to start looking at your new greenhouse. So what goes into a good greenhouse?
Choosing the right framework is incredibly important when it comes to buying your greenhouse this season.
You will want to consider how easy it is going to be setup, perhaps you
may want to consider how resistant it is to wind or children depending on your family and home location. We typically see people choose aluminum frames with stainless steel nuts and bolts. This helps to create strong joints, whilst still maintaining the light weight frame. This will be ideal for those of you that are looking to setup quickly and easily.
You can also look at wooden or steel frames if you need something a little stronger, bespoke or fitting to your garden aesthetic. We generally recommend that people stick to the aluminum frames as they are a lot easier to setup, but this is definitely a good place to look if you need something more heavy duty.
It’s not a great deal of fun setting up a green house, it takes a lot of time and effort working with some very fragile materials. We recommend that you dedicate a whole weekend and work with a partner or neighbor if you need assistance. However, to make your life easier, you could always look at a greenhouse with an easy setup. The easier the setup then the faster you can get started on gardening!
Typically the greenhouse kits that you can buy online will get you started and finished quite quickly, but a bespoke design is going to be more complicated to design and build, but ultimately going to fit your needs more readily. It is our opinion that nothings beats a quality greenhouse when it comes to growing in the spring and summer, but you’re going to need to build a greenhouse that is large enough if you want to get a real variety of plants.
Price & Warranty
We won’t talk too much about price, because there are so many people with different budgets and such a large variety of greenhouse’s that you could buy depending on your budget. However, we will talk about warranty. With a greenhouse you can expect to find warranty packages of about ten years or more, this is fairly common across the market, and is going to give you good value.
If you’re looking to start gardening this year, now is a great time to get started. With the spring/summer fast approaching we strongly recommend that you look to make your greenhouse purchase sooner rather than later, so that you can get started right as the spring weather gets started.
