The following plan comes directly to you from the great people at BuildEazy. Many people have taken to starting their own gardens in the backyard so they can enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables. For some of us, me included, the harsh winters don’t allow for year-long supply of healthy, home-grown food. BuildEazy shows how to create a very inexpensive greenhouse that can be used through the winter months to keep the veggies coming! Be warned though that the level of this project is not easy.
The plan goes over the intricate details of measuring and cutting the wood into the precise sizes necessary to create the greenhouse. Along with this information they also discuss that you need to plan out where you want to put the greenhouse and make sure of a couple of things.
- Make sure that it is in a dry area.
- If it is at the bottom of a hill r incline it may be necessary to install a drainage system to dispel running water.
- Has to be on a flat surface or in a place that could be made level.
As I mentioned earlier, this project isn’t the easiest, but with a little time and effort you can have a working greenhouse of your very own. One other big important piece of information. A greenhouse needs a substance called UV-Resistant polythene. Most garden shops will sell plastic polythene, but the plan says that most can point you to where to buy the right kind for the roof of the greenhouse. Thanks again, and as always, stay crafty!
