Greenhouse Maintenance – Selected Tips
Types Of Greenhouses
After you decide that you want to build a greenhouse, you have to decide next what type to build. This should not be a difficult one to address, provided you know what kinds of plants you want to grow. You will need to answer questions such as:
- What will my greenhouse be principally used for?
- Do I want a large or small greenhouse?
- Will the greenhouse be the main attraction of my garden?
- Is my garden exposed to strong winds?
- Are there young children or wild animals in the area?
Factors such as cost and space will determine the type of greenhouse you build. If you do live in a windy area, it may be worth to spend the extra money for a solid and sturdy greenhouse. If you live near a large hardware store or a nursery, or even a do-it-yourself home center, go and visit some models. The customer service representative should be able to provide you with valuable information before you make a final decision.
So as not to mislead you, while there may be different types of greenhouse designs, we’re talking about the same greenhouse. You get to decide which type you want it to be. For example, if temperature is the main factor, because of the plant varieties you want to grow, then there are three types in terms of temperature control. There are also different types of greenhouses based on structural design. We’ll start with temperature control factors. For temperature control purposes, three types of greenhouses exist:
- a hot greenhouse
- a warm greenhouse
- a cool greenhouse.
