Something more in our garden
When we talk about greenhouses, we refer to an environment created especially for our plants, where they can find the characteristics of their natural habitat, those ideal to take root and grow healthy and robust over time: light, climate, temperature. If the environment in which we intend to build it is a cold environment, naturally we will, thanks to the greenhouse, be able to grow plants suitable for warmer climates and vice versa, if we live in a warm place, we will be able to afford luxury, thanks to a refrigerated greenhouse of have plants that grow at almost polar temperatures! The greenhouses can be in iron, in masonry, in aluminum, in wood, in polycarbonate. There are variable, fixed or mobile dimensions, and obviously each model varies according to our needs, and those of our garden, as well as, of course, the budget we have available. Whatever the material, the fixed ones usually have a masonry base to make them more solid and resistant, or in any case rest on well-screwed supports deep into the ground. Walls and roof, rigorously sloping, naturally they are in transparent material - glass or plastic that is - so that inside them light and heat can filter and above all it is possible to regulate the degree of humidity necessary for the balance of our cultivation. It is advisable to orient our greenhouse towards the south, allowing to adapt the dehumidification system of the same, perhaps even with a small fountain. It is also advisable that for a correct ventilation and for a correct circulation of currents, that some of the walls of our greenhouse are provided with windows opening outwards. Whether we are 'Sunday gardeners' or thumbs up, you see enthusiasts, we see the proposed garden greenhouses on the market, so that we can understand what suits our needs the most.
The most economic proposals
Let's start with the more economical proposals, those all in plastic, which cost very little, even if they are found on the market even starting from 15 euros. In reality, these are not real greenhouses, but small structures with wheels, easily transportable, organized with two or three shelves on which to place the vases of flowers and plants and equipped with a transparent plastic sheet that covers them during winter period. The roof is naturally sloping, to allow the outflow of rain, as well as leaves and debris to slide down, without weighing down the structure and weighing on our plants. This type of greenhouse is equipped with openings through zippers, which allow the right air circulation and help us find the correct degree of humidity that favors the well-being of our plants. It moves easily, so it is possible to move it to all points of the garden. Of course, the price varies depending on the size of the structure and the quality and resistance of the cover sheet. Always in plastic, always cheap, but designed for a completely different use, are the so-called 'tunnel' greenhouses. These are semi-circular metal structures, which tend, in fact, to create a real tunnel on the ground, covered with a transparent plastic sheet; this type of greenhouses is fixed directly into the ground. They are fixed structures, however equipped with a side or top opening, to be exploited where the temperature warms up and the climate is adequate for the well-being of our plants. Ideal for growing plants and aromatic herbs, these greenhouses are not very aesthetically appealing: it would be better, therefore, if we also have a small back garden, to place it there, away from the sight of our guests. On the market there are also models equipped with a special tank to hold the soil for sowing: this expedient transforms our greenhouse from fixed to mobile. In one case or another the price of the tunnel model starts at 20-25 euros to never exceed 100 euros. You can buy them in gardening, DIY and DIY stores, and even online, on dedicated dedicated sites.
For a higher budget
If our budget is higher, we have a large space available and we like the idea of a fixed greenhouse, we can turn our attention to metal or wooden structures. They are beautiful, elegant, furnish our garden and cherish our plants. These are complex structures, real 'little houses' for our beloved green with a masonry base. As it happened in ancient times, even for modern structures it is always advisable to use glass as a cover. In fact, as well as having low production, installation and maintenance costs, glass is able to withstand the most unpredictable atmospheric agents, as well as mechanical stress caused by rain and wind. But above all, glass, the inert material par excellence, is ideal to avoid the dispersion of heat and multiplies the radiation of light. Of course we can also choose a synthetic, plastic roofing material, remembering however that its reflective power is lower than that of glass. Both models are usually equipped with sliding panels. Greenhouses of this type, complex in assembly and maintenance, are on the market at fairly high figures, the price can vary from 60 to 90 euros per square meter. But they are obviously guaranteed to last for a long time.
Garden greenhouses: garden design: Garden greenhouses
Do not hesitate a minute more, before coming across a very important page of our portal, where we will try to treat one of the main alternatives to winter gardens, certainly more affordable for a large group of users, especially from a commercial point of view. The reference, by force of circumstances, is to the so-called garden greenhouses.
Specifically, in an area such as the one we are dealing with, you cannot fail to consider variables such as the height of the greenhouse, but above all the material with which to make it, considering that the discriminant in question may or may not facilitate a crucial process, namely the passage of solar rays inside the structure created with the greenhouse.
