But it already enjoys as "personal business on the land." Is this possible? Absolutely!
It all depends on what type of greenhouse, which designs and the size (area) you decide to build. The choice of design and equip a greenhouse - it is a very serious matter. Much depends on the region in which you live, how severe your climatic conditions, and to what time of year you plan to use your greenhouse, what, and how to grow.

Greenhouses have many gardeners and homeowners, but the effectiveness of their use is very different. An attempt to grow vegetables in the greenhouse in winter, almost useless, as the high cost of heating and lighting of greenhouses in the winter months makes cost-grown just fantastic, and labor - disproportionate.
However, the small backyard greenhouses and summer are great and growing popularity. They can be used to grow vegetables and hide the early crops from adverse weather conditions in the warmer months. This is a short-term and late Rann freezing, rain, hail, strong winds, etc.
Yet, the effectiveness of such a small greenhouse not very high. The reason? There are several reasons:

  • The small size of the greenhouse. Difficult to maintain the microclimate.
  • Typically, these greenhouses are not equipped with the necessary equipment, such as irrigation.
  • Inability to use most of the greenhouses in the summer (the lack of ventilation and shading).
  • Passion for polycarbonate, resulting in overheating and complication greenhouses ventilation.
  • Lack of automation, which leads to high costs of labor and time.
  • How to deal with these problems and make the greenhouse more effective?

Our recommendations:

  • Use film greenhouses. They are cheaper, easier to maintain and easier to make greenhouse side curtains for effective ventilation.
  • Set in a greenhouse automatic drip irrigation system. Watering will be guaranteed.
  • Use an automation system and fertigation (fertilizer with irrigation water).
  • The use of hydroponics. Hydroponics is one of the most effective methods of growing plants.
  • Use the special mulching film. With its help retain moisture, soil structure, increasing the lighting plant, prevent the emergence of weeds and to a large extent, protect plants from damaging infections such as Phytophthora and other pathogens.
  • Use shading greenhouse in the summer months. Shading will reduce the temperature in the greenhouse and the plants will grow in the summer.
  • When the decision to build a greenhouse - choose the size greenhouse Pobol. The effectiveness of such greenhouses are much higher. Recommended sizes - at least 30 meters
