Greenhouses: What You Need to Know Before you Buy

HomeBlogGreenhouses: What You Need to Know Before you Buy

If you are an avid gardener and want to be able to garden throughout the year, greenhouses are a great way of achieving your goals. Before making your purchase, there are a few things you should consider.

Consider how big you need your greenhouse to be

1. Location

a. Greenhouses typically do best when they are placed on the north or northeast side of a house in a sunny area where they will capture as much daylight as possible.
b.  A freestanding location as opposed to a greenhouse that is attached to your home will give you more control over greenhouse temperatures.
c.  Other location needs to consider are proximity to a water source and a foundation that provides good drainage. Ideally your greenhouse should have the land sloping away from it.

2. Size – Consider how big you need your greenhouse to be. You want to have enough space for your plants, but also space for you to move around even after your plants begin to grow. A 10’ x 10’ greenhouse is typically the smallest size greenhouse for serious gardeners.
