Our Greenhouse is More than Just a Shed!
The portable greenhouse shed from Countryside is an incredibly durable and compact backyard greenhouse. Whether you need a nursery for germinating new plants, or a place to grow flowers and herbs year round, we believe you’ll love having your own protected growing area. Our portable greenhouses can withstand many kinds of weather conditions that would otherwise wreck a cheap green house or kill your delicate plants, be it strong winds, snow, and many other harsh weather conditions. Your plants will thrive in our portable greenhouse.
🌞 Sunlight. Even better.
Diffused Light = Better Growing.
The translucent and light-diffusing panels on the sides and roof of the greenhouse shed are engineered both to allow and even enhance the transmission of sunlight to your plants. By diffusing the sunlight, the young plants are protected from harsh direct rays from the sun.
Furthermore, according to Greenhouse Magazine, diffused light “will penetrate deeper and more uniformly into the plant leaf surfaces. This allows more of the leaves to be productive photosynthesis generators. It is most effective on tall crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, roses and for vertical growing. Getting light to the lower leaves has shown to increase growth and yield of vegetables by 5 percent or more. It can also increase flower production. Diffused light can also reduce scorching, lower container temperature, reduce fungal spores and decrease insect propagation.” Clearly, diffused light is a big win for plant growers.
💨 Strategic Exposure
A win for your plants, and your wallet!
Unlike a traditional greenhouse, which has a light-transmitting layer across the entire structure, the greenhouse sheds from Countryside let the light in where it’s shining, and keep the weather out where the sun is not. This ingenious approach to greenhouse structure saves energy and maintenance cost when compared to greenhouses with a complete light-transmitting layer.
With the translucent side of the greenhouse facing south, the sunlight panels will allow light transmission from sunrise to sunset, while guarding the darker side with materials that better protect the growing environment against wind, heat, and cold. This also means lower cost of replacing panels if they become too dirty or worn.
