Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shelibeli A bit pricey, but if it works...worth it.
So far so good! I researched many different options before settling on the grow camp. I really wanted to do a veggie garden this year but we have so many weeds, and deer and rabbits, that I was afraid to invest the time. This has so far been fabulous! It was easy to put together, and even though it is almost all plastic, it seems really sturdy. It doesn't have a bottom, which at first I thought was a negative, but in thinking about drainage I realized it is a good thing. I bought a roll of landscaping fabric and lined the bottom with it, then filled it with soil. It takes about 18 cubic feet of soil to fill it! Then I used twine to mark off the squares and planted away. Everything had sprouted within 5 days and is doing great. I haven't had the need to close the plastic part yet, but leave the screen part attached all the time. Rain and sun get in plenty, but no bugs or animals! (Although I did catch one caterpillar who had feasted on one of my pepper plants....not sure how he snuck in there!) And I am hoping the plastic cover will come in handy to extend the season for some of my plants into the fall. The only reason I am giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is the price and the fact that it was missing a few "s" hooks which we just replaced ourselves for a few bucks.

Took me about 4-5 hours to put together; no written instructions, only pictures and not intuitive to me. Instructions gave out after structure done. Had to figure out how to apply plastic and screens. Kit was missing the majority of the S hooks so had to go to the hardware store. Vegetables are in. I am afraid the tomatoes are going to outgrow it even though i tried to buy plants that would fit. They really like the environment. I hope the deer don't learn how to crash in the screens. So far I am happy with it.

I put my 2 section GrowCamp together in about 2-3 hours. By FAR the hardest part was getting the ground level--I live in a hilly area. The second hardest part was getting it filled with soil. It takes a LOT of dirt!! Putting the actual structure together was easy. I'm a single woman and did it alone. I will say: follow their picture directions precisely. I assumed I needed to use some fasteners in a couple places that the instructions did not show fasteners. Well, hey, there were holes lined up, and it seemed logical to put some in there! Well, as I continued to put it all together, those fasteners were not only not necessary, but in the way. Thankfully, they had also included some extra fasteners, so all was good. Anyway, follow their pictured directions precisely and you will have no problem. Really well designed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oldgardener Good product.
Pleased with structure and its appearance. It is really helpful to have another person assist with the structure. Want to warn others not to confuse Grow Camp with STC Grow Camp as they are two different sizes and extensions will not fit each other.
During a severe thunderstorm last week, new tomato plants were protected with simply unrolling of plastic film.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike good design, excellent idea
Excellent idea in gardening. Combine a raised bed with a hot house with screens for bug protection and plastic linings for heat, can't beat a winning combination. It does take some time to put together and is on the pricey side but if it does the job it's worth it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by yhawk Good Working Unit - Excellent Customer Service!
Pros: Relieved that Customer Support is American and Professional. Sturdy construction. Good enough to keep out pest invasions, which allows for good growth. Easy to follow pictured directions. Cons: The Grow Camp is less than 4 ft x 4 ft. The 4 base panels are each 45 in long! The removable poly covers are just short of being able to effectively seal it up to the velcro bottom on the netting panels. 6 S-Hooks missing, 2 Longer Support Wires Missing - instead got 6 Short Support Wires, 1 of 2 Removable Poly Panels Ripped.
Called Home Depot Online. They contacted vendor, who sent S-Hooks and 2 Longer Support wires within 10 days. Removable poly panel on backorder, but will send when they get it in. Made do with what we had. Wish they had shelving that went with it (or that could be purchased as an accessory). Put in milk crates to raise up potted vegetables over patio brick on plastic base. Too many ground squirrels, rabbits and moles in our area would burrow right under walls through soil if we filled it with soil.
Overall satisfied with product and American Customer Support*

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NWteacher Compact- an efficient use of space.
We have been looking for a greenhouse for some time now. When we came across this product we knew it was just what we were looking for. It's compact, looks great and although had a TON of parts, fairly easy to put together.

This greenhouse goes together very well. It takes 1 person about 2 hours with only a hammer. The quality is very good and it should stand the test of time outside.
