Polycarbonate is safer than glass but admits slightly less llight, although this is not significant in a home garden.

Glass is not affected by long-term light exposure, but polycarbonate can last for 20 years. Some kinds of polycarbonate are double or triple-walled and hold more heat, though admit less light.

In appearance, glass looks better and cleans better and more easily.
