Greenhouse Comparison Chart

Trying to sort out the features and benefits of so many greenhouse models can be a daunting task. We have put together the following charts to help you see how each greenhouse compares side by side. There are three different charts; Comparing the Basics, Comparing Longevity, and Comparing the Features. Scroll down to make sure you see all three charts. You can click on the greenhouse name to go to the greenhouse product page.

We hope you will find these charts helpful. If you have any questions, please email us or call us at 1-800-825-1925. Most of these units set up at our retail store, so we can easily answer any questions you may have about one of these greenhouses.

Season Rating: All products meet at least a 2 Season Rating which means they help you start earlier in the spring and grow longer into the fall. Some products will extend your season longer than others. To meet the 3 Season Rating, the greenhouse needs to be big enough and insulated enough to add heat in the winter (it is too hard on a heater to heat a small greenhouse). The 4 Season Rating means the greenhouse can be used all year. The greenhouse has adequate venting and diffused light to allow you to keep it moderately cool in the summer.

Cost: $- less than $1000, $$- 1000-2000, $$$ 2000-3000 $$$$ over 3000, rating based on the least expensive size in that model.
