We’ve been working hard behind the scenes the last 6 months deciding how we can change our company and our product to better serve you and make the experience of buying and owning a Growing Dome even more enjoyable. Over the next couple of months we’ll be rolling out some new features. The first phase of the changes is the release of the NEW Classic Kit with Weather Packages. For years we’ve been asking upwards of 60 questions to put a unique Growing Dome package together for each customer. We are all about taking care of our customers and making sure they will get a greenhouse that works best for them, but as we have started to see patterns emerge we’ve realized that we really don’t need to take up that much of your time! We pooled 23 years of experience, with Udgar, the owner’s, knowledge and put to use all the creative juice around here to combine some of our most popular features with some new upgrades. All of these things now come in a newly arranged kit with brand new packages based on your local weather conditions.
The up-leveled Classic Kit includes everything our Standard Kit once included plus: 5-wall polycarbonate glazing panels, a 24″ wall, a door with a window and a shade cloth. There are now three Weather Packages available: Windy Weather, Desert Heat and Mild Climate. By answering no more than 6 questions, we can select the Weather Packages for your location. Then it’s up to you to choose from the handful of optional upgrades we have available including the Solar Powered Waterfall, the Metal Glazing Strips, the Redwood Bottom Plate and additional upgrades for the larger sized Growing Domes.
Right now the Classic Kits by Growing Dome size and the Weather Package information is posted on these pages: https://growingspaces.com/greenhouse_kit/ and https://growingspaces.com/greenhouse_kit/greenhouse-kit-15/ Stay tuned for our online “Build Your Dome” project where you will get to assemble your kit, packages and upgrades online to share quotes with friends and purchase online.
As always, we are available Mon-Fri 8am to 5pm by phone to answer any questions and take your order at 800-753-9333.
I am interested in 26-ft dome, to be sited in Mico, TX, which is in agricultural zone 8. Have you marketed your domes in TX, and do you have any testimonials from satisfied owners in Zone 8? I understand that you have a desert package available, and I have read the specs you have included in your website, but I see no specific reference to hot climate dome use – only northern & temperate climates. Please reply with information specific to use of your domes in hot, arid climate. I am also looking for specific siting requirements in such a climate… do you recommend a semi-shaded area for a portion of the dome, for instance? Thank you, in advance, for your reply. Jean Lake
Hello Jean, Yes, we do have a handful of Growing Domes in Texas and quite a number in hot, arid climates across the US. That’s great news that your climate is dry. Arid climates are easier on greenhouses in general. We would recommend our desert heat package for you and to have deciduous trees planted on the south and west sides of the outside of the Growing Dome would also be fantastic. The other great idea is to fill the inside with a lush forest of trees and vines. They offer great evaporative cooling and shade in the summer. One of our product specialists will contact you by email to see if we can help with any other questions you might have. Thanks for your inquiry and have a lovely day, Stacey
