Choosing the Right Greenhouse for Your Garden

Choosing the right greenhouse for your garden can be a daunting task, but with a little research and consideration, you can find the perfect one for your needs. Here are some things to consider when selecting a greenhouse:

  1. Size: The size of your greenhouse will depend on the amount of space you have available in your garden, as well as the plants you want to grow. Sizes are basically the width and the length. The width of the greenhouse normally is 6ft, 8ft, 10ft and 12ft.  In terms of length, it can be 8ft, 10ft, 12ft up to 32ft or more. If you only have a small space, a mini greenhouse may be the best choice. However, if you have a larger garden or want to grow a variety of plants, a larger greenhouse may be necessary. We always suggest gardener to buy bigger greenhouse than planed, cause once begin to plant inside, it will be full very quickly.

2. Material: Greenhouses can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, aluminum, and PVC. Wood is a traditional and attractive option, but can require more maintenance. Aluminum is lightweight and durable, but can be more expensive. Also it looks more elegant if the greenhouse use black framed. PVC is a more affordable option, but may not last as long as other materials.

3. Glazing: The glazing is the material used to cover the greenhouse. There are several options to choose from, including glass, polycarbonate and polyethylene. Glass is the most traditional option and provides excellent insulation, but can be heavy and breakable. Polycarbonate panel is lightweight and shatterproof, but may not provide as much insulation as glass. Polyethylene is affordable and easy to install, but may not be as durable as other options.
