How do I prepare my greenhouse site?
Most people purchase 4 x 4 lumber and bury it so the top is at ground level. They fasten the greenhouse to the wood framework by purchasing their own screws. Some people build a wooden deck and screw the greenhouse down to that.

How do I anchor the kit?
It can be anchored to a foundation, depending on the greenhouse, some have compatible holes at the bottom of the greenhouse base, and some have their own integrated anchoring. Yes, the greenhouse can be anchored to concrete slab. It can be anchored directly to the ground using ground stakes (ground stakes are not supplied with the greenhouse kits). *Firmly connect the product to a level surface immediately after completion of the assembly. Anchoring this product to the ground is essential to its stability and rigidity. It is required to complete this stage in order for your warranty to be valid.

How long do the greenhouses take to assemble? Do you need more than one person?
The 6x8 and 8x8 sizes could take 5-7 hours. The longer Snap and Grow Greenhouses will take longer. It is best to have two people and to follow the directions very closely.

What tools are needed to assemble the greenhouse?
A small ladder, Phillips screw driver and rubber mallet are needed. Some use silicone spray as a lubricant to help slide in the end fittings.

How do the greenhouses hold up in the wind and snow?
The Snap & Grow was tested at 50 mph when anchored well. It is key to anchor the greenhouse well to the ground. In high wind areas it is best to run a strap or cable over the top with separate ground screw anchors.

How do the greenhouses ship (type of carrier)? How does the greenhouse come packaged?
The greenhouses ship either UPS or FEDEX. They are packaged in heavy duty cardboard boxes and may come in more than one box, depending on the size of greenhouse ordered.

Can the greenhouse be extended (made longer) at a later time?
No, that is not an option

How do I clean the greenhouse panels?
You can clean the panels by spraying water over them and/or gently wiping them with a very soft cloth.

Is the greenhouse portable? Can it be disassembled if I move?
The greenhouse can be disassembled and moved. They are rather lightweight so you may be able to simply pick them up to move them.

Can I put a door on both ends?
No, that is not an option

Will it hold up to hail?
Yes, this is high impact polycarbonate

Complicated, but doable for two people

Most important: This is 8x12 INSIDE, so if you are planning to build your foundation before you receive the kit, make it at least 8.5x12.5. About 95% of the assemble can be done by one person, but there are a couple points in assembling the frame where you'll need someone else to hold parts together while you install joints and fasteners. The picture instructions are good, although I found a couple errors. The worst one was two cross members that were swapped front to back, that required some disassembly when later parts didn't fit. Overall, I'm quite happy with it. I recommend getting the automatic vent operator(s). Two days ago it was 25C inside when it was only 8C outside. I ordered the operators and will be retrofitting this week.

Love My Greenhouse
