By: Floren Neel

These days, homeowners have been enjoying growing salad leaves, plants, vegetables, orchids and colorful begonias inside their small greenhouse. And, this season if you are serious about carrying your home gardening ideas to the next level then itís time to raise your own green thumb! Look no further than a small garden house to turn your wandering gardening ideas into a 3d reality.

Yes, it is all about turning your boring patio, simple lawn, barren backyard or empty rooftop into an extended living space with the ultimate touch of color and life. Yes, the cutting edge concept of pop up small greenhouse has offered a rather contemporary facet to your gardening ideas, while completely eliminating odd surprises and tedious gardening challenges.

So where to start with and what to look for? The important question remain unanswered...
First, try to find out the type of your roof, (such as if it is a flat roof or if it has different levels) if you considering a rooftop garden house. It is all about planning things well and if required you can even arrange to make a survey sketch for full proof completion of your home gardening project.

Next significant step is to find out the particular type of construction (whether itís wood, aluminum, steel, or concrete) for evaluating the possibility of carrying out your home gardening project. While wood finished plant house looks incredible still it needs more maintenance. On the other hand, although aluminum greenhouses are easier to look after however they inspire more condensation hence might require some special clips for fixing supports.

Aside from wood and aluminum, polycarbonate greenhouses have also become increasingly popular as these are much safer than the glass ones and are also much cheaper. The new age polycarbonate garden houses are also less transparent than their glass counterparts hence sunlight seeps in a much filtered way, meaning your plants would need less shading in hot and long summer days. There are also the double walled versions available, which are at a much lower risk from wind damage than their single walled models, and also offer more insulation than the glass ones. However, one downside of the polycarbonate greenhouse is that you wonít be able to see out of them clearly!

Once you have determined the style and material of your small greenhouse, itís time to plan out the layout of your gardening ideas to suit your needs. Well, if you have serious space constraint then removable staging can stand as a good idea.

Good ventilation is yet another important point to keep in mind. Always look for vents in the sides and in the roofs and also opt for extra vents if available. Consider automatic vents if you have to stay away from your garden for a considerable amount of time.
Needless to say that you have to take care of your garden house to retain its color, brightness, and lushness. And one of the significant problems is definitely the long, sunny, summer days, which can even kill your young and tender plants. Adequate shading, plenty of ventilation and systematic damping down are the answers for making your Small Greenhouse into a pea green and vibrant reality.

Happy growing!
