Shorter Order Times

  • Demand increases in late spring and summer, which can cause longer wait times. If you start the design process and order the greenhouse building supplies in  winter you can get a head start on the growing season! 

Prepare for Planting 

  • If you install a greenhouse in Oregon this winter, the ground can be better prepared and potentially warmed before prime planting season begins. This gives you the opportunity that come April / May, you will have soil ready for planting seedlings or mature plants.

Clean Installation Site

  • With a new greenhouse built before planting in Spring, you may have an easy and clean installation site already prepared, or any existing vegetation will be simpler to clear in a dormant winter state. If the area is pre-cleared, then there need to work around existing plants for your greenhouse install. 

Cost Savings

  • While not guaranteed, building your greenhouse early and ahead of peak times may save you money on supplies. The best first step is to call your professional greenhouse builder. They can give you an idea of the best timing and supplies to help your install go smoothly as well as insight into market trends for additional supplies that may be required. 

One reminder is to factor in the irrigation and any relevant heating systems you plan on incorporating as that could add extensively to your costs as well as building timeline depending on supply availability.
