Q. Should I buy a greenhouse kit or build my own greenhouse structure
A. Greenhouse kits are available in many sizes and styles from greenhouse suppliers. These companies can help answer questions on the various types of frames and coverings available. Basic kits can be purchased at reasonable price, offering a nice compromise between time, convenience, cost, and ease-of-assembly.
If you are handy, building your own greenhouse offers greater flexibility in size, shape, and materials used, and can be a great DIY project. This option usually costs less, especially if you have some of the materials on-hand to build the structure. If not, most of the building materials can be found at your local home improvement center.
