Recently, many friends have asked, what issues should be paid attention to if you build a greenhouse by yourself? Lets take a look at these necessary conditions below!

1. Site selection.

To build a greenhouse, you must first determine the location of the greenhouse and consider the following aspects:

1. Climate: In many cases, climate reasons often cause the service life of greenhouses to be reduced, or the yield of crops is not high, and pests and diseases will be more difficult to deal with.

2. Geographical location: You should choose a place with sufficient sunlight, and the terrain should be slightly higher than other areas. If there is heavy rainfall in the later period, it will not lead to harvest failure, and it will not affect the growth of the next season's crops, which are often flooded by rain. There are many diseases and insect pests in some places, and they are also stubborn pests and diseases. Do not build the greenhouse on an air outlet, as this will also affect the service life of the greenhouse.

3. Lighting: It is suitable to build a greenhouse with an east-west orientation, with east-west bays and north-south spans, so that the crops in the greenhouse can receive sunlight for a longer period of time.

2. Civil construction work.

The service life of a Agriculture greenhouse is directly affected by the civil construction work. Later drainage problems must be taken into consideration, as well as the slope of the greenhouse, and then pre-embedding is required. The stability of the greenhouse will not be affected by natural disasters in the later period. Severe damage renders it unusable.

3. Select materials

Generally, the most commonly used materials on the market for building greenhouses are hot-dip galvanized and galvanized steel. What is the difference between the two?

Hot-dip galvanized pipe: strong corrosion resistance, long service life, slightly higher price;

Galvanized steel pipe: Strong corrosion resistance, slightly poorer service life, shorter service life than hot-dip galvanized steel pipe, low price and economical.

Appearance differences:

1) The hot-dip galvanized pipe is snow-white but neither shiny nor reflective. There are many snowflakes on the surface and there are zinc nodules (condensed zinc) on both ends.

2) The galvanized pipe is shiny white and reflective, with very few snowflakes, and both ends are clean and free of zinc flakes.

When you see this, I believe that if you build a greenhouse yourself, you should have your own ideas. I hope that todays sharing can help everyone.more
