Greenhouse Canopies

greenhouse canopyGreenhouse canopies are wonderful additions to your garden or yard, especially if you live in a climate with unpredictable weather, a short growing season, or simple to keep out pests and weeds.

1. Protect from Unpredictable Weather

Unpredictable weather can happen in any climate. Greenhouses are wonderful for preventing a ruined crop. They protect from hail, severe wind, and quick temperature changes. If you like to start from seeds, a greenhouse can help protect your vulnerable seedlings in the spring until they are ready to put in the ground.

2. Lengthen a Short Growing Season

If you live a norther climate, harvests can be small as there just isnt enough warm weather to grow your plants as long as you might like. A greenhouse can allow you to start your garden as early as February and extend it well into October or possibly even November. Check the USDA website for information on when and how to use a greenhouse in the winter months.

3. Lengthen Your Growing Season

Even if you dont live in a northern climate, it is nice to have fresh, homegrown foods in winter. In many states in the southern half of the United States, you can use a greenhouse to grow food all winter long.

4. Keep Out Pests and Weeds

Although nothing can fully protect a garden from pests, a green house is gives some of the best protection against unwanted critters and weeds. Our greenhouses have windows with insect netting.
