While greenhouses are not commonplace in every neighborhood, they certainly should be. Greenhouses allow those of us with green thumbs to grow our favorite plants year-round, no matter where you live. Here are some things to consider when building a greenhouse, and don’t forget to get help financing your next home improvement project with Your Project Loan!
Where Should You Put Your Greenhouse?
The first thing to consider when planning for a new greenhouse is where you will put it. You likely already have a spot in mind, but there are a few essential characteristics of the perfect location that will ensure the success of your plants. Choose a place that is not underneath any large trees, as these can block sunlight and drop heavy branches on your structure. Choose ground that is already level, or have a professional grade the site for you. One way that some folks tackle uneven ground is by having their greenhouse partially recessed into the earth. This can help regulate temperature and allow you to build a structure on tricky terrain.
How Big Should it Be?
The size of your greenhouse will likely depend on the space you have available. However, if you have a large property, the size of your structure is entirely up to you. Avid gardeners and plant collectors often prefer large greenhouses, though they may opt for multiple smaller structures or partitions to accommodate plants with different humidity and lighting needs. Folks who simply want a small space to overwinter their plants may opt for a smaller structure.
Which Materials and Style Speak to You?
Whether you decide to hire a contractor or you choose to install a prefabricated greenhouse, there are many options from which to choose. Glass type, trim material and color, and configuration all work together to create a structure that is as unique or as traditional as you’d like.
