Benefits of Metal Greenhouses
When considering a polycarbonate greenhouse, you may be unsure whether to stick with traditional materials like wood or branch out with galvanized steel. Our greenhouses offer many benefits over a metal greenhouse. When choosing the best option for your plants, check out the benefits we can offer you when you are deciding on the right greenhouse.
Even a small greenhouse can keep your plants safe from harsh weather conditions all year. When winter arrives and the weather may be too cold and windy for your plants to thrive, a greenhouse can be vital for your plants.
You also have options for customization that can help you choose exactly what you want for your greenhouse. That includes sizes, shapes, and color options. Their bolt-together design makes customization easy, so you can get access to options that meet your exact needs.
Finally, one of the many advantages is the ability to control the conditions inside the greenhouse. Internal temperatures, pests, and other factors are all accounted for when you use our greenhouses.
Key Features of Metal Greenhouses
Choosing the right greenhouse for your plants can be difficult. You want to ensure that they are given the right space to grow and bloom throughout the year.
So what makes our metal greenhouses stand out against greenhouses made from other materials? Below are some key features that you can expect from any of our greenhouses, so you know what they can provide before you buy:
- Steel Frame – Our steel frame greenhouses provide more durability and stability than other backyard greenhouses. A heavy-duty steel greenhouse frame can help your greenhouse stay stable and useful much longer than other options.
- Polycarbonate Panels – Greenhouse plastic panels provide natural light with transparency while also insulating the inside of the greenhouse throughout the year. Our polycarbonate panels provide heat and insulation, even in the coldest months.
- Easy Assembly – When you need a space for your plants throughout the year, you want a structure that can be put together easily and stand on its own as soon as possible. Our bolt-together design allows you to assemble our greenhouses quickly and with minimal use of tools.
Choosing the Right Metal Greenhouse
Choosing the right metal greenhouse for your needs, your plants’ needs, and your budget is important. If you have not yet chosen the right greenhouse, there are a few key elements that can impact the right choice for your needs.
First, consider the size and shape of your greenhouse. This will often depend on the space you have available, but you may have options depending on the capacity you are looking for.
We also offer quality materials for those looking to provide the best for their plants. Our galvanized steel options can provide the support your greenhouse needs.
You may also want to think about your options for easy access and ventilation. Ensuring you have these features can help you meet the needs of all your plants and help them thrive.
Maintaining Metal Greenhouses
Even a sturdy greenhouse with a galvanized steel frame may need regular checks for wear and tear. Over time, parts can get broken or worn down, so it is important to check or inspect all of your greenhouse on a regular basis. These inspections can help your greenhouse stay insulated and free of pests to be the perfect climate for your plants.
Cleaning & Care
While our steel frames and polycarbonate panels are more resistant to pests and other issues, you still need to regularly clean and disinfect your greenhouse.
Spot-checking for weeds, debris, and dirt Is your first step. Having a shop vac for covered floors can also help keep your greenhouse clean. If you have an irrigation system, be sure to remove dirt and material buildup that can increase over the growing period.
To properly maintain the temperatures in your greenhouse, you may need to install certain temperature regulation options for your greenhouse. For example, exhaust fans can help push out hot air, which can be great for hotter climates and summer months.
In the winter or in colder climates, you may need to bring heating options into your greenhouse. Properly spaced heaters can help create uniform heating throughout the space, which can help your plants stay warm throughout any season.
