    INSTALLATION MANUAL

    The Thoreau Greenhouse is named after the great naturalist and agriculturalist Henry David Thoreau.  The Thoreau Educational Greenhouse Package is designed for schools with horticulture programs, correctional institutions, and serious gardeners for both growing and therapeutic reasons. The 2” x 2” galvanized steel frame with pre-welded stanchions and commercial graded 8mm twin wall corrugated covering (walls and roof) are the same specifications used in commercial products in the market today. The walls and roof are warrantied for 10 years and have a 15-20 year life expectancy.

    The walls of the Thoreau are 6 ft. tall with a center peak of 9.5 ft. for optimal air circulation. The design of Educational Greenhouses requires attention to details that are different from that of hobby or commercial greenhouses. The design differences include:

    • the ability to accommodate large numbers of people (students) and allow them to become a part of the growing process,
    • secure environment that can be locked when not in use,
    • built to last construction that will provide many years of use,
    • all within a climate controlled environment that is thermostatically controlled.

    Our factory is a leader in providing functional, affordable greenhouses to schools and universities. Our educational line of greenhouses has been refined over the years and the offering is the most comprehensive in the market today. Our line is comprehensive in nature.

The Educational Greenhouses are customizable and can be made to meet any local ordinances required to gain permitting. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to notify your retailer as to the requirements PRIOR to ordering as there might be additional costs associated if local requirements vary. Signed and sealed drawings are included in the cost of the greenhouse. They are based on your local municipalities requirements and will need to be supplied and confirmed by the purchaser. Riverstone is not responsible for building a greenhouse that does not meet local ordinances from the building department. Please reach out to Riverstone with any questions.

    Curbside (or Tailgate) Service:

    Please note the prepaid LTL shipments are shipped curbside which means the semi-truck will pull up to the curb at the residence. The semi-truck driver is not required to remove the product from the truck. You will have to be home for delivery and in most cases will need 1-2 people to take the product off the semi-truck. There are usually 2-3 boxes per pallet.  Once the pallet bands are cut, it will be easier to unload each box. The truck driver will call you to schedule delivery.

    Lift Gate Service: 

    With lift gate, the semi-truck driver will assist in removing the product from the truck. The driver will unload the shipment to the residence curbside. You will need to be home for delivery.  Since most of our delivery is to residential area, lift gate is automatically added.  If you don't need lift age service, please make a note in the order.

      Lift gate is not available on select items including the Palram 13’ Feria Patio Covers and the Palram San Remo Sun Rooms.

      Delivery:

      The freight company will make a delivery appointment before attempting to deliver the shipment. If the driver attempts to make a delivery on the agreed upon appointment window and you are not there to accept delivery, you will be subject to re-delivery charges for every attempted delivery thereafter.  If for whatever reason you cannot be reached, storage charges will incur and you will be responsible for the storage charges.
