Once you have completed the foundation for your greenhouse,
it is time to anchor it to the ground. We recommend using the earth
anchor system because it is inexpensive, easy to install, and very sturdy.
Each earth anchor system includes 4 anchors (one for each corner of your base),
1 drive steel (used to drive anchors into the ground), and galvanized mounting
hardware needed to secure the anchors to the base. It is recommended that you
- Place the earth anchor in the ground approximately 6 inches away from the corner
of your greenhouse base. Put the drive steel inside of the anchor and use your
hammer to drive it into the ground. A 3 or 4 lb. hammer will be heavy enough to
drive the anchor in most soils. A larger hammer may be needed to penetrate hard
soils. Drive the anchor until the end of the cable barely touches the edge of
the greenhouse base.
||Step 2 - Once you
have driven the anchor into the ground, Pull the drive steel out of the ground
and insert it into the loop at the end of the cable. Pull cable out of the soil
2 to 3 inches. This will rotate the anchor into a horizontal (locked) position.
Now you can mount the anchor to your greenhouse base.

- Take the loop at the end of your cable and place your lag bolt through it so
that the cable is between your washers and the greenhouse base. Secure the lag
bolt to the base and you are done. Follow this process for each corner of the
