This article will help you to see that you can even gather your own materials and do it yourself.

There are a few simple and key steps that you can take, and hopefully after reading these steps you can finally say that “You can” build your own greenhouse.

Greenhouse Construction Tips

1. Recycle materials which are no longer in use for your greenhouse construction. This would save your money. You can use the money that you saved for the heating and irrigation systems.

2. Remember the climate of your community for this matter. Living in a cold region usually requires you to have some sort of insulated greenhouse.  You will need shade control for warmer and sunnier areas and both for the desert region.

3. Plan for your greenhouse ventilation. Be sure that the air circulation is adequate, and the same with the heat and humidity control. Take into account the kinds of plants you are growing as they should coincide with the climate.  Proper ventilation is necessary so that your plants will not suffer.

4. Choose the perfect location. Make sure that the location of your greenhouse has enough sunlight.  There should be enough shade and sunlight if your want vegetables and fruits to grow there.

5. Choose the best material for the siding of your greenhouse.  Using all glass can be very expensive and make it far to hot for proper plant growth if you don’t have a good ventilation system.  Wood siding is good, and some people even use vinyl or metal siding to complete this portion of the project.

6. Build a stable foundation. Using concrete would ensure this as would railroad ties. This would affect the cost of your greenhouse, so you need to really budget when you decide on this.

7. If possible or if your budget would permit the greenhouse heating and greenhouse irrigation, please add these elements. These would make things more convenient and comfortable, plus it is essential for some climates. Benches inside your greenhouse are a great idea too.

8. Use the Greenhouse Pest Control. Through this, the problem of insects population will go down. If possible, quarantine the plants that were infested to avoid the spreading.

9. Build storage racks or cupboards to make it easier to organize your tools.

Hopefully after reading these steps you will finally say that “You can” build your own greenhouse too.
