The Riverstone Industries Monticello 8 x 12 ft. Premium Greenhouse Kit proves that not all greenhouses are built the same. Monticello products are proudly made in the USA. By applying good old American ingenuity, Monticello makes the best product while helping to elevate the industry standards of all greenhouses.
This premium greenhouse is constructed from the highest quality US-grade extruded aluminum and not the thinner and more brittle foreign aluminum. It comes in select protective finish options, which are guaranteed to contain 0.0% lead. This greenhouse uses over 55 pounds more aluminum than the average imported greenhouse. Why is this important? A weaker framework suffers more wind damage and can handle less snow before collapsing.
While most hobby greenhouses on the market use less expensive, thinner walls and roofing materials (the crystal clear walls are as thin as .2mm), the Monticello uses professional-grade 8mm twin wall polycarbonate. This is the same thickness used in the commercial greenhouses. The twin wall polycarbonate acts as a double paned window keeping cooler air in during warm months and insulating the greenhouse from cold air in the wintertime. This makes the Monticello more efficient than other greenhouses. It also adds to the efficiency of growing, cutting down electric bills for those who choose to grow year round.
The average greenhouse on the market today takes a full weekend to assemble. This is why many greenhouse owners say their top issue in the first two months of ownership is the actual set-up. Through a combination of using superior materials and creating interchangeable parts, the Monticello takes the average gardener 10 hours to assemble an 8 ft. x 12 ft. greenhouse with the premium package, while using fewer parts. This does not include the base prep work needed, which includes leveling the ground.
This is a premium package, which includes the Monticello greenhouse, one commercial work bench, interior shade system, programmable watering system, and the only greenhouse sink in the industry.
At 7.6 feet tall at its peak, the Monticello’s above average interior height helps displace heat within the greenhouse and is more comfortable for even the tallest gardeners.
This Monticello greenhouse is loaded with features to ensure you’ll enjoy it for years to come. Features include an integrated base, built-in rain water gutter system, and automatic roof vent opener. The newly redesigned hinged double doors have an opening of almost 6 feet tall by 4.5 feet wide! The Monticello grows as your needs do, with four-foot extension kits that can be purchased any time in the future.
You get what you pay for and with the Monticello! Monticello is backed by a 10-year warranty, one of the strongest in the industry. This warranty includes the frame and polycarbonate. For the gardener that is looking for a mid-priced greenhouse system that will supply years of hassle-free indoor gardening, this is the greenhouse for you.
We hope you enjoy growing in the Monticello as much as we enjoyed designing it.
Please note: allow a full weekend to fully assemble (ground prep included). Two people suggested for assembly. Manual is fully illustrated.
