Summer Greenhouse Maintenance Tips

Summer maintenance is important for a lasting greenhouse and perfect environment for your crops. Keeping great care of your greenhouse and equipment will help them last longer and keep giving you a quality environment and service. A deep clean is best to fully maintain your greenhouse and check on its condition along the way. 

First, you must remove everything from inside including the plants, planters, benches, tools, etc. Next is to clean and get everything from top-down, pay extra attention to any crevasses like at windows, screens, and vents where some dirt can get in. Don’t forget the floor as well, making sure that you got to any corners, cracks in your concrete, and to remove any weeds in the gravel and soil floors. This also includes sterilization, make sure to seal any openings, windows, vents, and the like to fully kill any bugs or weeds growing you cant see.

Now is when you can inspect your greenhouses condition, summer is the best time for wood frames to be repainted or stained. It’s much easier to check the condition of windows and vents now with nothing in the way and any potential grime removed to get a true diagnosis on their condition.
