What are Greenhouses and how do they work?

So what’s the 411 on Greenhouses you ask? Well a greenhouse is a very convenient structure used to protect crops from environmental factors such as extreme heat or cold weather. They also keep those unwanted pests away. With a greenhouse, you are also not limited to growing seasonal plants and vegetables at certain times of the year. Year-round gardening, here we come!


Greenhouses are usually made of a transparent material such as glass or even plastic. There are 3 types of greenhouse structures and they come in various sizes. These are lean-to, detached, and ridge and furrow or gutter connected.

Many people opt to place a greenhouse in their backyard to take advantage of the stable environment it provides for their plants and vegetables. The natural light and temperature from the sun provides the optimal home for your crops. Sunlight enters the greenhouse through the glass/plastic and then these warm invisible rays turn into energy which in turn is absorbed by the plants as food. 


A greenhouse is the perfect addition for any hobbyist, botanist or commercial grower. As more people continue to look for more sustainable ways of living, greenhouses will continue to grow in popularity. If you’re ready to see what you can bring to life with your own greenhouse, check out our collection of greenhouses here.
