The greenhouse gives an opportunity to grow heat-loving plants or simply get a crop of vegetables much earlier than the weather-climate conditions allow. But the heat which can be combined with humidity microclimate inside the greenhouse can contribute to the cultivation of pests and pathogens that can overwinter and destroyed the crop of the next year.

Limited Area Gardening
Where garden space is very limited (small space gardening), consider wide-row planting of vegetables. Wide-row planting is simply a matter of broadcasting seeds in bands anywhere from 10 in. to 3 or more feet wide instead of a single band on each row. With the wide row system, more square feet of garden space is actually producing vegetables and less space is left for cultivation between the rows. With this method, production will usually more than double. read more →
Gardening inside greenhouses has already been proven to yield good harvest, but if you use hydroponics in a greenhouse, the benefits are multiplied. Hydroponic greenhouse doubles or even triples the harvest you can make from the same area using the usual gardening system. read more →
An Orchid Greenhouse is a greenhouse dedicated to the breeding and nurturing of Orchid plants. There are four basically types of Orchids: terrestrial orchids grow in the ground, while epiphytes grow on trees; usually establishing themselves is the joint where a branch is growing from the trunk. A third type of orchid is the Lithophytes, or air-growing Orchid, which grows on rocky surfaces.

Here are some tips of designing country plot or designing country gardens. The process of the greenhouse designing can be easily compared to the science that can evolve every next year. In addition to all the design of the greenhouse is also the art. That means that we do not just follow certain rules according to the science but also create beautiful and cozy suburban “nest” where it is very nice to take the rest from the noises of the city.
Your deep desire to refine the newly acquired piece of the land is understandable but however our suggest is that you should not rush with taking the shovel into your hands and proceed to the improvement of the greenhouse. The first thing that you have to begin with should be to carry out serious preparatory work. Also it is necessary to think over all the details of planning from A to Z.
Designing country plot: What exactly should be the beginning of the planning of the greenhouse?
Let’s do everything according to the rules and start planning with a phased analysis of the territory. Only after that necessary step it will be possible to start drawing up the plan of the future greenhouse and finally give the space of your imagination of how and where exactly you are going to build the house and then the following elements of your future “paradise”. A little further away somewhere in the shade of the fruit trees the cozy gazebo will be placed and somewhere there in the shade of the sun the beautiful flowers will be settled on the flower beds. But all of this are going to be later but now I will tell you what factors you need to take into the consideration before you start designing the greenhouse.
Evaluation factors of the greenhouse
The relief. The location of the greenhouse buildings on your land, the layout of the garden, the design of the alpine slide, the right place of the creek, the reservoir and other attributes of the landscape directly depend on the type of the relief. As for example, you will ever not start building the greenhouse on the steep slope. Therefore be sure to mark on the plan of your land the features of the relief.
The form. Your property land can have very different shapes of the structure. Such as standard geometric, rounded, elongated, in the form of a letter P, G, and so on.
The soil. Be sure to investigate the type of the soil and check its acidity. The type of the plants that you will plant on your property will depend from these important factors such as the type of the soil. You may need to do the cultivation work on your land such as bring black some more ground, the peat or the natural type of the soil; make fertilization where you plan to plant and do other types of the work. The information about the soil is recorded in a special map. You can request the report from the government institution. Also you can order soil analysis using the service of specialized laboratory or you can the choice to do it yourself using guides in the network. This action requires certain knowledge and skills. For example the acidity of the soil is checked with the help of the special litmus paper (you can buy the test in the specialized store together with instructions of how to use).
The groundwater level. Only by determining the level of groundwater occurrence we can make the conclusion whether the drainage is needed or not. This information is available in the departments of architecture and town planning of your city or State. It can be issued on your private request. You can determine the level of groundwater occurrence by yourself. To do this you should drill several wells on your property with the depth of up to two meters in the middle of the summer when there is no chance raining. After the week later check the water level in the drilled wells. If the water level is less than from one up to one and a half meters from the ground level than the soil needs the drainage system to be installed.
The winds. Many garden cultures do not tolerate with windy weather so you should check the directions and strength of winds prevailing in your area with the local weather service. The next step is the creation of the future garden plan based on the received data. Do not forget to think about the protection of the plants if your property has very strong wind weather characteristics. Maybe you are lucky and angry north winds will not harm your future garden but to avoid this situation you need to know this information in advance.
The illumination. The next necessary step is to determine the location of the property with respect to the sides of the world. The degree of illumination will depend on the location of the buildings as well as the breakdown of the flower bed gardens and the selection of suitable types of the plants.
There are a lot of additional methods for analyzing the territory of your property. We just listed only the most important and then we will tell you about the basic planning styles of the suburban area.
