Hobby Greenhouse Styles for your backyard

A hobby greenhouse can add much beauty to your home garden. Plants can be enjoyed year-round…and the greenhouse is a long-term investment.

If you are new to greenhouses, these are just some of the things to consider before purchasing a quality greenhouse…. from choosing a basic style of greenhouse to designing your workspace and deciding on heating, cooling, and ventilation.

Howto decide what style your greenhouse should be? Your first decision is to select a freestanding or attached greenhouse model. A ‘free-standing’ design allows you to select an appropriate site to maximize sunlight exposure and aesthetic appeal. Attached greenhouse models offer convenient access to services, good use of yard space and added insulation.

Greenhouse design styles vary widely and include A-Frame, Gothic Arch, Quonset, Gable Roof, High Pitch Roof. The greenhouse style will be determined by you budget, the location and climatic conditions of your area…. and of course, what you plan to grow.
