We will discuss building your own greenhouse and the advantatages of building over buying one.  Then we will discuss the greenhouse environment, how your greenhouse design crates a mini-ecosystem that nurtures your plants no matter what the weather.  Finally we’ll discuss the portability that some of the smaller greenhouse designs  offer.

You can build your own backyard greenhouse if you can use simple hand tools like a hammer and saw, a drill and screwdriver.  The rewards are huge, not only money savings, but as a gardener you free yourself from the weather and you will be able to enjoy fruits and vegetables as well as flowering plants year round. You will be able to garden year round, rain or shine – and what a great place to save your patio plants through the cold months.

Your greenhouse is like a mini-echosystem, a mini-planet earth that you control.  The sun, as with our earth, provides the 1st element – light, the light makes heat, it interacts with the air, water, and greenhouse systems to setup the proper temperature, humidity, and overall environment for your plants.

There are many backyard greenhouse designs. Some offer portability and allow you to move them around the yard for the best sun exposure or for convienence.  Backyard greenhouses range from a small starter to lean-to, to a large conservatory style that allows you more than one work station.
