How to protect your wooden greenhouse staging
Staging offers a wide range of benefits. One of the main advantages of staging is that it keeps your greenhouse free of clutter and organised, creating a much healthier atmosphere for your plants and allowing them to remain at their best. There are several steps that you can take to ensure that your wooden greenhouse staging stays in good condition.
One of the main problems encountered with wooden staging is damp and mould, which can be caused by too much exposure to water. During the summer, your greenhouse will become very hot due to rising temperatures. The humid atmosphere will increase the risk of your staging becoming damaged. Adding extra ventilation will help to provide better air circulation and will reduce the risk of damp, mould and plant disease.
If you are looking for staging that is long-lasting, then cedar wood staging is an ideal choice. This type of staging is easy to maintain as it is rot-resistant, providing you with something that lasts much longer than other types of wood staging. It is also attractive and will keep your greenhouse looking great. Cedar wood staging is more expensive than other types of wooden staging, but is the best choice for those looking for something superior in looks and quality.
A regular cleanout will also help to keep your staging at its best. Making sure your greenhouse is not cluttered and that there is good air circulation will reduce the risk of mould and mildew and will help to prevent your staging and plants from becoming damaged. Any dead plants and soil bags should be removed and staging should be kept away from any damp areas in order to reduce the risk of the wood rotting.
Wooden staging now has slatted surfaces, offering extra ventilation for plants and reducing the risk of the wood becoming damaged by mould or mildew.
