Choosing a Backyard Greenhouse
Home and Family Author: C.A. Perez
Choosing a Backyard Greenhouse
After retiring, I moved to the Great Northwest. It is beautiful country with four seasons, but try to plant corn, melons, or tomatoes! Before moving to the Northwest, I never gave having backyard greenhouse a second thought. 

I have had a garden in my backyard since I was a young boy. I just loved to see those young seedlings sprout through the soil. I lived in the Southwest where the summers are long and the winters are short.

Living in the Northwest, I soon realized that if I wanted to grow the plants I was accustomed to. I would have to have a backyard greenhouse.

I first tried some PVC pipe hoops and some plastic sheeting, but I very soon got tired of lifting those sheets to water my plants. And, during the summer I had to roll those cumbersome sheets up and clip them to the frame else my plants would fry under the plastic sheeting. As you can guess I soon got tired of doing that.

That is when I decided a "real" greenhouse was in order. As you can imagine there are hundreds of shapes, sizes, materials, and prices. The choices overwhelmed me.

In desperation, I picked an inexpensive model with polycarbonate glass-like panels with 48 square feet of space. It was easy to assemble.

It took a little longer to put together than the manufacturer claimed, but it was not anything I could not live with, and I am no handyman.

I have to say, though, that it was a mistake. It was not because the hobby greenhouse was no good. No, not at all. I was the one at fault. In my desperation, I had not really planned it.

I am sure you have experienced something similar. It is like looking through the seed catalog in the early spring, there are so many choices. Sometimes you end up buying more than you can plant. I suspect it's human nature.

By the end of the first season, I realized that I had not planned my purchase and my needs. Maybe if I had thought it through and asked myself some simple common sense questions, I would not be planning the purchase of another bigger greenhouse.

Here are some questions you might ask yourself before you commit to a purchase.

First, how much are you willing to spend? What fits your budget? Greenhouses can be inexpensive or they can be as expensive as a small house.

How much room do you have to place the greenhouse? There are portable hobby greenhouses that take up very little room and are ideal for the patio or balcony apartment.

Will you use your backyard greenhouse to start seedlings for spring planting? Then perhaps a smaller greenhouse or even a portable greenhouse will meet your needs.

Do you want a winter garden? You could enjoy fresh salads well into the winter months. For that, you would need a considerably bigger green house.

I am sure you can think of other questions to ask yourself. the point is do a little more research than I did before you decide to buy a hobby backyard green house or greenhouse kit.
