How To Build a Fold-Down Greenhouse


If your home isn’t in such a harsh and cold environment, you won’t need an entire greenhouse to protect the plants you worked hard throughout the year to grow. When you feel some tough weather approaching, make sure you’re ready with the drop-down greenhouse. This handy DIY project will allow you to have a beautiful and un-hidden garden while still being prepared for any kind of weather. The structure is not that heavy but still so sturdy a mild autumn wind won’t tear it down. Be careful not to leave any plant touching the structure, because it will conduct the cold to anything it touches. With a few PVC pipes, plastic sheet, and some cutting, you will be able to provide your plants with a quick and reliable piece of protection. Follow the instructions from the link below to the letter and make your own fold-down greenhouse in a few hours.

List Of Tools:
hacksaw, jigsaw, or miter saw
rubber mallet or sledge hammer
spring clamps
¾-inch soil/garden auger drill attachment (optional)
