Bracing the greenhouses is the only unusual step I take. Not that this simple method would be adequate for really high winds, but it's fine for the storms that usually hit us. I discovered from previous storms that the central hoop of the greenhouse is the weak point. So if I install a single cross brace, it saves the hoop from being overly torqued and thus breaking,
I guess I could make this more complicated, but this set up works. It's easy and quick to install and take down. And it only requires two 2x4s, two metal spikes, and a few screws.
|The metal stake is one used for concrete forms. It has holes th can put a screw through.|
As I've said, this is only a solution for a small hurricane. Perhaps I should work on a more substantial solution in the event of a stronger storm.
