Portable shelters have many pronounced uses and they have definitely redefined the concepts of using available space to their maximum potential. Portable shelters can be used for just the events or extended uses during a particular season, before you can just fold it up and put it in storage. On the other hand, you might consider using the same portable shelter for different uses throughout the year and use it as a storage option when not actively using it. However, portable greenhouses or garden shelters have definitely brought forth the latest in design and innovation in the field of portable shelters.

Portable greenhouses can be purchased for quite affordable prices but they can completely change the look and functionality of your simple garden with the scope of uses that you can put it through. Many seasonal flowers, herbs, vegetables and even rare hothouse flowers and orchids require special climatic conditions and care to thrive. Portable greenhouses are available in so many sheer varieties that you can use it to modulate temperatures and even the amount of light and ensure that these rare plants have the full chance to grow even in strange climates

When purchasing a portable greenhouse look for advanced features that allow for the establishment of additional fixtures. Apart from this, the very first feature to be checked is the material of the canopy. This will be the defining factor for the garden shelter’s effectiveness. Look for materials such as polyethylene or polyester that are treated to be UV rays protected. They should also be 100% water resistant. They should also have features that provide for 70-80% light transmission within the greenhouse and allow for rip protection.

Always look for trusted and reliable brands when deciding to invest in a portable garden shelter. Most of these shelters come with a periodical guarantee and the company should provide for first time installations and maintenance checking during the guarantee period. It is important to check the garden shelter for wear and tear and keep up to date with any rips or scratches on the material due to the plants growing in or around it.

In some cases, you might want to add in heaters or special grow lights within the green houses. It is important that the material of the garden shelter be treated for such an occurrence. Also, ask the dealer about the continued use of the heaters during a particular season. If ignored this might lead up to accidents and fire hazards.

Finally, the size of the garden shelter or greenhouse will depend on the use that you intend to put it through. There are various sizes available such as the smallest planthouses, dome houses, row houses, or even big walk in models such as the springhouses or orchid houses. The maintenance and setting up of the garden shelters will depend upon its size and the complexity of the features that you want to install within the shelter. You might also want to purchase a slightly bigger model than your intended use. The additional space can be used to store manure, seeds, and other important garden essentials.
