5 examples of greenhouses for all budgets and spaces

Greenhouses are a necessary investment for vegetable garden enthusiasts. Having your own crops makes it possible to be able to control the mode of production, to go and pick your vegetables when they have really reached maturity, and above all, to be able to save money. Setting up a greenhouse in your garden means protecting your crops and allowing them to grow in good conditions, especially in the off-season. You can find them at different prices, in different sizes according to your needs on gardening sites such as Centrale brico. Discover below some greenhouses that can help you make up your mind:

1) A mini greenhouse for seedlings

The mini greenhouses will come in handy when you sow your seedlings. You will be able to plant your small seeds inside small pots and then shelter them from the cold while watching them grow. In fact, to grow, small seeds need heat.

Do not hesitate to put them near a window where the sun makes its appearance as well as to install the bell on top. Another option is available to you; the mini heated greenhouse! If you think it is not hot enough in your apartment or house, opt for a heating stand created specifically for them. Once your plants are tall enough and the season is right, you can plant them in the ground.

2) A lean-to greenhouse

The back-to-back garden greenhouse, also called a wall greenhouse, is attached to a wall of the house, like an extension of it. The plants will then benefit from the heat of the wall, as well as its rigidity, while being sheltered from the elements. You can also fix this greenhouse near a door so that you can access it without going outside. Some are equipped with skylights for ventilation.

Thanks to some greenhouses, it is possible to garden all year round! The most important thing is to choose the materials and the size of your greenhouse in order to adapt it to your garden and your needs.

3) The intermediate greenhouse

Located just before the tunnel greenhouse, the intermediate greenhouse is made up of arches and tarpaulin. Note all the same that it will surely not be as solid as a real tunnel greenhouse, hence the price difference. There are also certain rigid tunnels, which are fixed using stakes and closed using end caps.

4) tunnel greenhouses

Also called market garden greenhouses, they are quick and easy to install. For good insulation, they are often made of a transparent plastic film or a reinforced polyethylene tarpaulin. It will protect your crops from pests and bad weather, whatever the season.

Its maintenance is also easy; once a year, you just need to clean the inside and the outside in order to remove the green deposit left by your plants. There are different sizes, in different materials depending on your needs and the space available in your garden!

5) Polycarbonate garden greenhouse

The garden greenhouses can be used all year round; they will allow your crops to grow before and after the determined seasons. Polycarbonate is an ideal material for greenhouses; in addition to being easy and light to assemble, their roof is often made of square or rectangular panels that can open to allow air to pass through. Despite its lightness, it is still resistant to hail but slightly less to strong winds.

You will find different types of structure; in wood, PVC, aluminum or steel. Wood is the most aesthetic material, and the best thermal insulator. PCV is the cheapest of all, but it does tarnish over time. Aluminum is most commonly used because it requires little maintenance and does not rust. Then steel, which is used for very large greenhouses!
