Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse: Questions you may have

Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse 8 X 20 auto ventWith a large purchase such as this Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse you may naturally have questions that need answering or a detailed run-down of the many features and inner workings of this particular greenhouse model. Below we identify and discuss this greenhouse’s many features and elements of the design and construction you may find interesting.

Exterior: The gardener’s green colour of this greenhouse will blend into its natural surroundings of your garden or land superbly. The 360 degree nature of the floor to ceiling glazing gives this structure an outside-in feel, similar to a conservatory or sun room. The glazing and resin frame are 100% protected from UV rays, giving you and your gardening projects the ultimate protection. Virtually maintenance free, there is a roof vent in which fresh air can circulate around the interior.

Interior: The 8x20ft super-spacious interior gives you ample opportunity to make a start on all of those gardening projects that you have been dreaming of. From plants and flowers to vegetables you can grow them all in a multitude of ways, with hooks for hanging baskets and the option to add freestanding shelving.

Windows & doors: With hinged double doors including a latch, transporting items between your garden and the greenhouse couldn’t be easier. The 4mm twin wall polycarbonate glazing holds the advantages of being both clear as glass yet virtually unbreakable. The roof panels do partially open to allow fresh air inside.

Security: No security fittings have been added to the greenhouse; however a padlock or similar security device could be added to the double door latch if security was an issue.

Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse: How easy to build?

If you look at this super-size greenhouse in amazement and wonder how on earth you are going to be able to assemble it, particularly if you have limited DIY experience, then fear not as Rion have made the assembly as easy as possible. With a full instruction manual containing easy-to-follow diagrams and instructions that detail every step to assemble this greenhouse correctly, you are in safe hands. We recommend that two people undertake assembly of this greenhouse together due to the sheer size of the structure, height of the roof and amount of glazing to be fitted.

Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse: What is the overall quality like?

This fully polycarbonate glazed greenhouse allows a significant amount of light and warmth to allow your plants, flowers and vegetables to grown in optimum conditions. The 4mm twin wall polycarbonate glazing is a clear as glass on the side panels giving your greenhouse a premium look and feel. The glazing is virtually unbreakable, meaning that you don’t have to worry about breaking any windows whilst pottering around inside and is also fantastic for security purposes. The strong resin frame of the greenhouse provides a solid structure which will no doubt still be standing in your garden for many years to come. The material from which this greenhouse is constructed makes it virtually maintenance free. Should your greenhouse require a clean, simply hose down or sponge wipe with water or a soapy solution for an extra sparkle.

    I have bought this greenhouse a year back and I don’t have any major complaints. It was a tad difficult to setup, for the instructions being not so clear. But after working on it for 4 long hours, I could finally make it stand. But the longevity of the material is not as good as promised. Few days back I saw some damages on the plastic resin frames. They seem to have disintegrated. I am not having any problems due to this right now, as they are small damages but I am immensely worried about its future condition. If this whole frame gets damaged gradually, I will have to replace it. But the problem is I have spent a fair amount of money on this greenhouse and I will not be able to afford another one sooner.

    I’ve always dreamt of having my own greenhouse. I spent in my friend’s greenhouse saying “I wish this greenhouse had this and that. I would definitely get one like this.” I later discovered that the greenhouse finally listened when I met the Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse. It’s a perfect mixture of clear and opaque panels letting the perfect amount of light penetrate into the greenhouse. The lower panels allow the maximum light and heat while the opaque panels diffuses light keeping direct sunlight from burning or destroying my plants. The roofing is the other amazing feature of the greenhouse. The units are constructed with a roof vent and rain gutters allowing me to utilize outside elements in my greenhouse. Construction is not complex at all. It takes about 6-8 hours to assemble everything. It comes with a fair price of about £1899.49 and a 7 years limited warranty but because of the strong polycarbonate plastics you won’t need it. The polycarbonate gave me confidence and with its functionality is ranked highly among other greenhouses. The hybrid technology in the making of the greenhouse is tremendous. It’s such an ultimate and wonderful experience

    I recently opened a nursery and didn’t want to spend a large amount on a nice greenhouse. I realized during my search that greenhouses were very expensive. My friend steered me to this site and I fell in love with this greenhouse. It is very spacious. It fits a lot of flowers and I still have room for me or customers to browse without being cramped. It traps the heat, so I can grow my exotic plants if I want. The double doors make it easy for me to carry large plants in or out. I can also wheel a cart inside to make it easier moving plants. The large windows allow a lot of light to enter, so no matter how much light my plants need they will receive it. It has a height of 258cm making it great for growing taller plants and I have a lot of headroom since I’m tall. The windows are polycarbonate so I don’t have to worry about breaking them. It also protects me from harmful UV rays incase I have to spend long periods inside. The Rion Grand Gardener’s Plastic Greenhouse was a great purchase and I look forward to using it to showcase my beautiful plants.
