How To Build A Better Greenhouse

Building your own greenhouse is the best way to have a greenhouse that fits your needs. Here are some greenhouse tips to help with that.

Tip 1: Greenhouse Size

How large to build your greenhouse will depend on the space you have and your budget.

Tip 2:  North Wall

The north wall of your greenhouse should be built without windows and well insulated.

Tip 3:  Knee Walls

Reduce the size of the glazing of your greenhouse by building insulated knee walls.

Tip 4:  Ventilation

Automatic roof vents are a must to vent the hot air that accumulates at the roof peak.

Tip 5:  Polycarbonate

Twin-wall polycarbonate is lighter, insulates better and is more durable than glass.

Tip 6:  Rainwater

Collect rainwater from your greenhouse roof and use on your plants.

Tip 7:  Green energy

Add a solar system to run ventilation fans, water pumps, lights, etc. in the greenhouse.
