Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to your questions about our services and commercial greenhouses, shade structures and protected cropping products. If you don’t find your answer here, please contact us.

Do you provide installation services?

Yes, we provide installation services by our qualified staff for any greenhouse structure OVER 120 m2, and for any cable span shade structure OVER 1000 m2. Any kits under 120 m2 come with fully-detailed Installation Manuals for self-installation.

Do you provide maintenance or replacement parts for existing structures?

Yes, we provide maintenance services for all greenhouses, shade houses and protective netting, and a full range of replacement parts and materials.

Are Solarweave covers included in all greenhouse kits?

Yes. We are the biggest suppliers of Solarweave in Australia, and Solarweave covers come as standard with all our greenhouse kits. Solarweave is a polyethylene based semi-transparent fabric specifically designed for commercial greenhouse and hot house applications.

You can request our Toyotani greenhouse film as the cover material. Toyotani is a clear plastic film used on tunnel houses and some other greenhouse structures.

Are your installation crews employed by GreenLife Structures or are they contractors?

All our installation crews are professionally experienced GreenLife Structures staff members and are covered by our workplace insurances. GreenLife Structures has its own fleet of trucks, elevated work platforms, trestles and all the other tools necessary to complete the jobs in a timely fashion.

Are your structures made with quality products?

Yes, our products are of the highest-quality standards and are sourced from industry-leading suppliers both in Australia and overseas. In many cases we have sourced the same quality product from the same supplier for 15 years. Examples of our quality sourced products include: Solarweave reinforced greenhouse film, Smart Shade horticultural shade cloth, Steelforce galvanised steel, and  Ludwig Svensson screens.

Are the greenhouse kits difficult to install?

Not at all. Only a general handyman level of skill is required. Over the years we have refined the structures and installation manuals to ensure self-installation is an easy and pleasantly rewarding experience.

Do I require any specialised tools to install a greenhouse kit?

Only basic handyman tools are required for most greenhouse kits. Cordless power tools, tape measure, step ladders, spanners, sharp scissors etc.

On larger structures you may need to hire machinery and trestles to allow you to bore the pier footings and work safely at height.

Do you provide free freight?

We do not provide free freight but we freight our kits and goods every day nationwide across Australia at competitive rates. Freight charges will be included in your quotation.
