Get the foundations right for your Greenhouse

9th Jul 2020

In order to get the best results from your greenhouse, it is important to have a solid, leveled and squared foundation. With a secure and stable foundation, your greenhouse will have smoothly sliding doors, easy to open windows and a strong anchoring system, which is especially important in high wind zones. It also increases the lifespan of your greenhouse.

Our unique and custom made greenhouse bases are undoubtedly the strongest on the market. They are built using powder coated aluminum to help maximize the structural integrity of the greenhouse. Below you will see the options we have created for Winter Gardenz New Zealand Greenhouses. There is a foundation option to suit all needs. Our 10ft and above models, and our elite models, come with the brackets for any foundation configuration.  If you are ordering a 6ft or 8ft (not elite) model, you may want to purchase one of our optional foundation mounting kits.

People often ask what they should put down inside their greenhouse. This can be as simple as laying gravel or shell chip, depending whether or not you are using a ground bed. Pavers are always popular, as they create a small pathway and also help to retain the heat. It’s best to stay away from using material like wood or bark, as it decomposes and can become slippery.  Please see the diagram and measurements below for planning space for your greenhouse.
