If you decide to build your own greenhouse there are a few different options available for  this exciting diy project.

One of the easiest options is to buy a greenhouse kit.

Greenhouse kits come in several different shapes and sizes but one of the easiest to use is a simple greenhouse which has a plastic cover and a tubular metal frame such as the one shown below. This type of greenhouse, although fairly small, is really easy to put together. Having said that, they do need to be protected from very strong winds and I would recommend securing them to a wall or the floor to increase their stability.

This type of greenhouse can be purchased in larger sizes such as the one shown below and these examples are a really easy and low cost way to make your own greenhouse.


Alternatively, if you are thinking of building a greenhouse with a more permanent and rigid structure, you have 2 main options. You can either employ construction contractors to build a greenhouse for you, or build your own greenhouse by following greenhouse plans and using materials that you have purchased personally.

Before you make your own greenhouse or get someone else to do it, it is important to check your local rules regarding building permits as you don’t want to go to the trouble of finding out how to build your own greenhouse, putting in together and filling it with pots and grow bags only to find out you’ve got to take it down again.
