At first glance, greenhouses may not seem like a necessity as far as backyard projects go. But on closer inspection, they have a lot of compelling benefits. If you happen to be a gardening enthusiast with a backyard full of leafy greens and homegrown spices, you should consider building a greenhouse. These climate-controlled structures are great additions to any garden for a variety of reasons. For one, having all your prized plants in a warm environment means you can grow your crop year-round. A greenhouse makes all the snow, frost, storms, and sudden temperature changes of the natural world irrelevant. There’s something to be said for the peace of mind that comes from knowing your plants are no longer at the mercy of mother nature’s caprice.
If you’ve always dreamed of growing some zesty pineapples, but couldn’t because you’re trapped in a temperate climate, a greenhouse may just be the answer. Building a greenhouse gives you a much wider range of possibilities as far as what you want to grow. The greenhouse’s hot and humid environment allows you to grow all manner of tropical delights. As a bonus, the hermetic nature of the greenhouse keeps your juicy crops safe from pests. And as National Gardening Month (NGM) rolls around, there’s no better time to build a greenhouse.
