Gardening is a favorite pastime for many. Whether you’re avid about growing your own natural fruits and vegetables at home, you enjoy floral arrangements around your yard, or you just have a green thumb and find your own quiet relaxation while gardening - there’s a reason for everyone to try the hobby at least once. 

If space in your yard is an issue, or other environmental factors like poor soil, too much shade, etc., plague your gardening capabilities, then you may want to consider building your own small greenhouse where you can still take part in the joy of gardening at home, with far less hassle and a much greater return!

Here are a few ideas for setting up a small greenhouse on your property. 

Choose the Right Location 

When you are ready to build your portable greenhouse shelter, you should choose a location that is going to give the plants the proper sun they need to thrive. Typically, this is on the south or southeast side of the house - for some home is the sunniest area could also be on the east side of the property.

Decide on Dwelling Material 

There are many different types and styles of greenhouse building materials to choose from. From plastics to glass and even wood. When you’re talking about a portable option, something that isn’t permanently in the ground, then you want to go with something lighter in weight for transport, but also strong enough to handle the outdoor elements. Walls made of Polyethylene plastic will be able to resist heat and humidity as well as tears. Also, be sure you choose a portable shelter with a strong frame. Galvanized steel will withstand high winds.
