Greenhouses are transparent structures, usually made of glass or plastic, that provide an ideal environment for cultivating plants and vegetation. By trapping the suns rays, greenhouses stay warm and allow for optimal plant growth.
Greenhouse kits offer a wonderful alternative for those of us who do not have the time or expertise to build a greenhouse from scratch. Most kits come with a wooden, aluminum, or PVC frame and either glass, polycarbonate, or plastic walls and roof. If you choose a greenhouse with an aluminum frame, make sure there are thermal breaks in it. These breaks will make sure that the outside metal is not in direct contact with the inside metal, which will help ensure the inside of your greenhouse will stay at warm as possible during the winter months.
Greenhouse kits vary in size from a small sunroom to a large pavilion. They will also very in what is included. Different greenhouse kits include different itmes, but they all include more than the greenhouse structure itself. Some will include a base, others staging, and others shade cloths. Some may also include extras like vents and misting systems. Greenhouse kits will vary by vendor.
Glazing refers to the type or thickness of the walls and roof of your greenhouse. Glazing can mean glass, polycarbonate, or plastic sheets, and different types of glazing will give you different growing effects. It is best to use glazing that is UV-stabilized in order to protect your plants; and use more than a single-pane glaze, as single-panes will allow the greenhouse to get too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
With a little research, you can make the dream of building and owning your own greenhouse a reality in no time. With our convenient greenhouse kits saving you time and money, that reality can be much closer than you realize.
