Greenhouse Gardening Tips
BC Greenhouse (6)
We recently helped out some customers who had purchased one of our greenhouses secondhand! The greenhouse was fully functional and they only needed a handful of new vents and screws. But other than that, it looks to be in pretty great shape! They were very happy with their purchase and we love seeing our greenhouses continuing to get love years after they are originally sold.

One of our favourite BC Greenhouse Builders projects! This Greenhouse that we built and went on sight to install is a 17x46 custom greenhouse for a public school in Brooklyn (PS216) as part of The Edible Schoolyard Project. The greenhouse is the heart of the classroom whereby the students will be gardening in a kitchen classroom setting that provides a hands-on environment for students in which to apply skills learned in traditional math, science and humanities classes.
There are certain points in a company's history that change the course of a business. There have been many over the years and one of them sticks out in my mind today. BC Greenhouse Builders secured our IP address in 1995 to sell greenhouses online. For a small family business, this was progressive and ahead of the curve.
As a custom greenhouse manufacturer, there are some things that have changed in 65 years but many things that haven't. Certainly, the scope of the business and going online in 1995 shook things up. Shipping internationally and growing our distribution have changed but the ethos of the company stays the same. The manufacturing process continues to be very "hand's on". Our productions team has a hand in every greenhouse that is made and almost all greenhouses are customized in some way and manufactured in our facility. All of our parts, pieces and components like capping, screws and fasteners are sourced in North America except for our polycarbonate. The poly comes from Italy because it's the best and weather so much better than other products we've seen. Our approach to customer service is still very old school. We like to talk to people on the phone and try to over-deliver with every purchase. The speed of daily life changes things and the one thing that we hear time and again is how much joy our customers experience getting back to nature and slowing life down.
