A large greenhouse has hired a company to replace the greenhouse cover it installed with a greener alternative.
Greenhouse replacement covers (GFRs) are widely used by large-scale commercial and residential growers, but they’re notoriously expensive.
While GFRs are typically installed in urban areas, they’re also increasingly being installed in rural areas, particularly in the US.
The US Greenhouse Energy Partnership has been working with three different companies to develop a greenery cover.
The three companies have identified an additional 2.5 million Cucumber bulbs as a green up option, said Hrishikesh Kumar, vice president of operations at B.M. Greenhouse, which will be the installer of the new cover.
The company will install it in three different locations and will then harvest the excess bulbs and recycle them.
“There’s been a lot of hype around the idea of having greenery in your backyard, but this has the potential to be the greener option that people will want to go for,” Kumar said.
The greenery covers are made from a mix of organic and synthetic materials.
The cover is designed to be able to be washed and reused.
“You can use it as a mulch or a compost heap for your garden, and you can recycle the bulbs.
If you’re in a hurry and you don’t have the space for the bulbs, you can also plant them in a pot,” Kumar explained.
M Greenhouse was formed in 2011 with a focus on developing greenery alternatives.
In 2013, the company launched its first greenhouse, a Cucumis Garden, which is made from biodegradable plastic and carbon-fiber.
The GFR is one of the companies’ flagship products.BGR’s new cover is a hybrid of a CUCUMIS Garden and a GGR.
The company plans to offer the cover in three sizes: a 5, 6 and 7-foot-tall one.
The 6-foot cover is available for $399, while the 7-ft cover costs $999.
The 3.75-inch-wide covers are priced at $1,799, and the 3.25-inch wide covers are $1.4999.
