Not all greenhouses are built the same and the Monticello line of greenhouses by Riverstone Industries proves this to be true. The Monticello is proudly MADE IN THE USA, applying good old American ingenuity to make the best product for our customers and help to elevate the industry standards of all greenhouses. Constructed from the highest quality extruded aluminum (US grade – not the thinner & more brittle foreign aluminum) and coated as not to discolor over the years (guaranteed to contain 0.0% lead), our greenhouse uses on average more than 55 lbs. more aluminum than the average imported greenhouse. Why is this important? The weaker the framework the less snow the greenhouse can hold in the winter time before collapsing on itself also the easier it will be get damages in wind. While most hobby greenhouses on the market us less expensive thinner walls and roofing materials (the crystal clear walls are as thin as .2 mm), the Monticello uses professional grade 8 mm twin wall polycarbonate. This is the same thickness as used in the commercial greenhouses. The twin wall polycarbonate acts as a double pain window keeping cooler air in during warm months and insulating the greenhouse from cold air in the wintertime. This not only makes the Monticello more efficient to grow in for a longer period of time than other greenhouses but it also adds to the efficiency of growing, cutting down electric bills for those who choose to grow year round.

  • Through a combination of using superior materials that are more rigid and creating interchangeable parts in our design the Monticello takes the average gardener 8-10 hours to assemble the 8 ft. x 12 ft. greenhouse while using much fewer parts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top Notch Product & Customer Service First of all, let us say what a great greenhouse this is. And, just as important as the quality of the Monticello Greenhouse is their exceptional customer service. We bought an 8x12 greenhouse in April 2012. When it arrived we discovered the doors had been damaged in shipping. We reported this to Riverstone Mfg and a few days later, we had new doors. We did experience some alignment problems during assembly. Riverstone’s engineer contacted us and through his help discovered that 3 twin-wall panels (corners slightly crushed during shipping) were the cause of this problem. Riverstone immediately sent out replacement panels and a few days later we were back in business. The greenhouse then went together smoothly. We were and are still very impressed with their Customer Service. The greenhouse is easy to assemble and instructions are some of the best we have run across. We don’t think the greenhouse can be assembled in 4-5 hrs as seen on YouTube, but with two people can easily be assembled in one day. The completed greenhouse is rock solid – no rattling of the twin wall panels & all the metal parts are of heavy-duty construction. While the interior shade cloth is an accessory, it is well worth the money and is a great & convenient addition. We decided to buy this greenhouse after a great deal of research & were impressed by the answers to our questions we received from Riverstone. We have not been disappointed. While there are cheaper greenhouses on the market, from what we have seen, heard, and read from reviews; none of them match Riverstone’s quality and ease of assembly. As a side note we do not write reviews, but felt this product was worth our time. We are budget-minded shoppers and don’t part with our money easily. As the old saying goes, “You get what you pay for”, we felt it was worth it, and as a plus is made in the USA. June 22, 2012
