Alternative Plastic Greenhouse Panels

Alternative Plastic Greenhouse Panels | DIY: Tips, Tricks & Suggestions | Scoop.it
During the spring and summer months the damage that has been caused to our gardens during the winter can be fully assessed. Whether it's plants that have been killed off by the frost, wooden furniture that has rotted or greenhouse panels that have broken, it is a time to not assess but repair everything that is broken, ensuring the garden is ready to enjoy in summer. While many repairs can be undertaken fairly cheaply or easily, repairing your greenhouse can be a whole new matter entirely.
Gregg Crawford's insight:

Having done this myself before, I would highly recommend using acrylic as a replacement to glass. Mine has lasted really well and has withstood a few footballs hitting it!
