The Monticello Patio Greenhouse enables gardeners to grow all their favorite vegetables in a greenhouse environment right on their patio and deck. Large enough to grow a variety of herbs and veggies but small enough to fit on most patios. Ideal for urban gardening as well. The compact design is also a perfect design for starting seedlings. When using the RSI Seeding trays, this greenhouse could produce over 3,000 plants to be transplanted to an outdoor garden. That is enough planting power to cover 2 acres. Constructed from the highest quality extruded aluminum and electrostatically painted. The weaker the framework the less snow the greenhouse can hold in the winter time before collapsing on itself also the easier it will get damages in wind. While most hobby greenhouses on the market with less expensive thinner walls and roofing materials the Monticello uses professional grade twin wall polycarbonate. This is the same thickness as used in the commercial greenhouses. The twin wall polycarbonate acts as a double pain window keeping cooler air in during warm months and insulating the greenhouse from cold air in the wintertime. This not only makes the Monticello more efficient to grow in for a longer period of time than other greenhouses but it also adds to the efficiency of growing, cutting down electric bills for those who choose to grow year round. Also includes is a programmable and customizable drip irrigation system to take the worry of your plants dehydrating out of mind. An interior shade system allows for better light control as well as the built-in automatic roof vent. You get what you pay for and with the Monticello, this rings true. Riverstone Industries back the Monticello with the strongest warranty in the industry 10 years on the frame and polycarbonate.
