Wiggle wire channel has no bend to it, would need to cut it into short lengths and attach those to an end wall

Appreciate the help. I had one of those tent type garages, kind of like a hoop house, go airborne and end up in the trees, What a mess! I'm not too hung upon code but finally learned that overkill is my friend.

If the wiggle wire channels don't bend to the end hoops, Is it better to go with the cover clips on the ends and use wiggle wire on the base boards?

This happened about 2 weeks ago in a wind storm. Was using one of those greenhouse/car canopy to temporarily protect some equipment and it flew over 200ft to find the tomato house...

That's not true. The channel bends really easily to the hoops. I have channel on all my end hoops.

You can just concrete the end hoop posts and a few others, depending on what you're of ground you have, you don't really need to concrete at all. You can just bang the posts into the ground and the wood greenhouse base screws to it. The base will stop the posts from sinking. Both the greenhouses shown in this thread have no concrete and haven't moved an inch years later.

But it depends what your ground is like

That really sucks. Difficult to fix this time of year. My brother had one end up on the neighbors roof. The neighbor was all pissed off. It still makes me laugh every time I think about it.

So what gives on anchoring the build.

Frost line is 4’, on average so that’s the outcome?

I’d strongly recommend the screwdriver post method before anything else,

As posted earlier you don’t want to have some jimmy rigged ASAP structure protecting things

If you and flyontoast could organize something that would be epic

Rico: don't overthink anchoring. If you don't use concrete, you don't need to worry about frost line. If you just use steel pipe driven into the ground a couple feet there is no issue. Then you attach each hoop to the pipe.
Steel pipe can't heave from frost because it's smooth. Concrete heaves because it's rough and expanding and contracting soil can grab on to it.

If you did go concrete, here are the recommendations from Harnois. They are a pre-green rush GH company that is extremely well respected in Canada.
I'm actually setting up a new temporary nursery for the veggie farm, only about 18x20ft, and I'll look into those screws since I don't want to pour concrete for a temp structure, but as show before, I can't have another GH blowing away lol.

I promise of you drive the posts into the ground, like i showed above and bolt it through the hoop, ground post and wood, there is no amount of wind that will pull it up other then a hurricane.

60mph winds won't even begin to do anything to it. I have had greenhouses sitting on mountain tops that get 60mph winds every year.. Each hoop bolted to a post that is 3 feet in the ground on both sides... What is going to pull that up?
