Glasshouse construction is not the easiest of jobs if you are a novice and want to build one for the first time. One option is to hire an expert and have the structure built from scratch. But ardent fans of greenhouse farming often feel that they don't feel that sense of ownership if the entire job is outsourced. However, it's still a great idea. The other option is to take expert advice and do the construction on your own. This is a time consuming affair and you need to ensure you have the time and patience. The best option perhaps is to collect all data about greenhouses and design it on a piece of paper and then have an expert build it. This way you will feel the ownership. Every element of the glasshouse, from the frame to the structure to the greenhouse controls will be as per your need.


What are some of the points to consider for glasshouse construction? What are those things that you need to know and plan? Given below are some inputs that you will find useful. So, even when you outsource the job later on you will still have total greenhouse controls in your hands.


Perhaps the most important element in glasshouse construction is the location. You should choose an area that receives the most sunlight. The east side is considered the best because proper morning sunlight is enough for the plants to grow properly. And with excess sunlight coming in you can have better greenhouse controls because you will be able to use more of natural sunlight and thus, will need less of artificial light heat. This will help in reducing cost.


You also need to know about the types of greenhouses that are there. You could have greenhouses that are attached to your house. Some examples are lean-to greenhouses, even-span greenhouses and window mounted greenhouses. You could also have freestanding greenhouses that are on their own.


The other important elements to consider in glasshouse construction include frames, coverings, flooring, heating and cooling, air circulation, ventilation, irrigation system and automated control mechanisms. Since it is not possible to include details of all of these elements here we would love you to go online and find out more.


Managing greenhouse controls is another aspect of any greenhouse. A greenhouse is built for the purpose of controlled growth and everything happening inside the structure can be controlled using the right equipment and tools. From the heating and lighting to air circulation to irrigation to temperature management - name anything and you have ways to control them.


The more you read about glasshouse construction more are the ideas that will come to you. So, when you ask an expert for planning and/or construction you will have a large say in how the entire job is handled. If you are in charge of the greenhouse controls right from the beginning everything will be done as per your requirement. This will give you the best satisfaction of running your own greenhouse.
