3 Easy Steps to Setting Up a Greenhouse in Your Backyard
Setting up a greenhouse in your backyard may seem like a daunting task, but the truth is that installing your very own backyard greenhouse can be as easy as 1-2-3! Here’s how.
1. Order a lightweight backyard greenhouse kit that fits the space dimensions you have available to devote to your new greenhouse garden. Today’s greenhouse gardening kits come in affordable packages that include everything you need to get your greenhouse up in a jiffy!
Be sure to read over the included parts and instructions before purchasing a kit if at all possible, or speak with a greenhouse gardening sales specialist or consultant to make sure you are getting the right greenhouse gardening kit to suit your individual needs.
2. Find North, then plan to situate your backyard greenhouse with the ridge of the roof facing east to west, with the door facing east or west. This will help you reduce your heating and cooling costs and get the most use out of the suns rays inside the greenhouse.
A greenhouse that gets only northern exposure may require artificial supplementation in the heating and cooling department year-round. A west-facing greenhouse will take advantage of the greater warmth and sunlight in the late of the day, where as a south-facing greenhouse takes optimal advantage of all that nature has to offer in the heating/cooling and lighting departments.
3. Set up your new backyard greenhouse kit with a little help from your friends. Especially if you don’t have a history of being Mr. or Ms. Handy Person, you might want to call in a few friends to help you assemble your greenhouse kit. Most kits are straightforward and easy to assemble, but having a few extra hands to hold ends aloft and fetch attaching pieces is always a plus.
Be sure to read through the instructions and gather any necessary supplies before starting the assembly process, and call your provided support number for any assistance you might need. Many greenhouse kits are lightweight and snap together making assembly quick and easy. Some even boast easy set up and tear down for the ultimate convenience and portability.
These three easy steps to setting up a greenhouse in your backyard provide the basics to get you started in your very own greenhouse gardening hobby or commercial greenhouse business.
