Now that you have made the decision to build your own greenhouse you need to get prepared. There are a few important decisions to be made at this point. Location, style, and size are important things to think about when you decide to build your own greenhouse.

When you build your own greenhouse location is important. Your greenhouse needs to be build where the sun will shine on it all year round. Think about how the sun shines into your yard in the fall and winter months. Can you run water and heat to this location if you chose to? There should not be any trees close by to shade it or damage it if branches should fall.

This location should also have good drainage. You do not want to build where rain or melting snow run into. When you are working with your plants and watering them you want the water to run out of the greenhouse or soak up pretty quickly, not sit there and puddle at your feet.

Next choose the size. Now that you have a location to build your own greenhouse on, take a good look at this spot. How much room do you have to build your own greenhouse? Is the location large enough to build any size greenhouse or do you need a smaller greenhouse? Level out the area and take a couple quick measurements just to get an idea of the size of your backyard greenhouse.

When choosing the size to build your own greenhouse keep in mind how many plants you are going to keep in your backyard greenhouse. Are you an avid gardener with a lot of plants or are you a hobby gardener with a few plants. If you are going to garden during the fall and winter you do not want to heat more space than needed.

Now choose what greenhouse style will best suit the location. The Victorian style greenhouse and the hoop greenhouse can be built any size you want. The hoop style is easier to build if you are going to build a large greenhouse. The lean to greenhouse is built onto the side of another structure. The lean to greenhouse is nice when built onto the side of your house if you want to heat or cool your greenhouse. The grow rack greenhouse of mini greenhouse works for any yard. This can be put on your patio or your deck.
