Even people with the greenest thumbs need the perfect environment to grow their leafy creations. When considering a greenhouse, or renovating an existing one, it’s important to remember some key components – starting from the ground up.
When looking at the floor of your greenhouse, drainage needs to be spot on. Whether your floors are concrete, brick, stone slabs, sand or even dirt, how they drain is crucial. Gravel floors, for example, provide excellent drainage and can be used in conjunction with a weed barrier to aide in the prevention of weeds growing through rocks.
Another consideration for your greenhouse floor isn’t just what can potentially creep up – but, what will be on it is just as important. Tables and benches are used for potting plants and filling flats and can mean your greenhouse floor will take a pounding. That’s why durability is a vital component in your floor choice.
Another feature to remember is the humidity needed to foster young plants. This can also cause potential flooring issues if your choice isn’t the correct one. Brick, stone and tile choices may be best, versus hardwood, which can buckle with too much moisture.
