The Palram definitely looks sturdier (it doesn't snow here) but you could fit 11 of those in this one which is a little taller than a 1/2 sphere shape. Definitely cement the PVC joints possibly with industrial grade for stronger connections. The tap screws are great for quickly securing them and the formufit connectors just about all fit nice but the wind got the best of four where they cracked at the screw (plastic didn't rip as far as I can tell). I moved the shade cloth and made it into a privacy screen right about where the piles of dirt are.
Ontario, Canada, not Ontario, California as you probably guessed. I thought about DIY options but it's a quiet family neighbourhood and legalization is brand new. I still want to grow outdoors but I want to find a palatable way to do it. A tidy little greenhouse neighbourhood kids can't get into seems like a good way to go.
Normally I'm a swamp grower and, though growing in my yard is going to be amazing, I may just keep my swamp site going as well for old time's sake.
