Rough Brothers Completed a New Horticultural Center at Yew Dell Botanical Gardens
YDBG is fortunate enough to have a project site that allowed for drilling into the earth to support a geothermal system. The sustainable approach was further realized through the use of solar panels and battery storage to power the Rough Brothers greenhouse and related equipment. Rough Brothers’ capable engineering and design staff molded a series of design challenges into an aesthetically pleasing and fully functional growing environment. YDBG staff and visitors are enjoying their gardens during record low temperatures while staying warm inside of their new sustainable greenhouse.

About the author
Rough Brothers was founded in 1932 as a maintenance and repair facility for greenhouses which were made out of redwood at the time. Over the last 80 years, Rough Brothers (pronounced Rauh) has evolved from that small workshop with a handful of employees to become the largest greenhouse and garden center manufacturer in North America. We are grateful to provide the glazed canopy for the garden center of both new and retrofitted Lowe’s stores on projects throughout the country.
