Learning About Erosion Prevention

Hello, my name is Sarah Brockland. I would like to talk about all of the different ways to prevent erosion. My favorite way to keep erosion at bay is by planting sturdy grasses and flowers. We apply the seeds to the hillside using hydroseeding equipment. The seeds quickly sprout and create roots that strengthen the hillside. The roots keep the dirt from running downstream, even during heavy rains. I will share more information about this practice and many others that keep erosion to a minimum. I hope you will visit my site again soon to learn more about this exciting subject. Thank you for visiting.


Is a Backyard Greenhouse in Your Future?

If you have a large vacant spot in your backyard, you may want to create a garden in it. But if small animals and birds such as opossums, moles, and crows frequent your backyard regularly, you may wonder if it's even worth the effort to create your garden. You can create the garden you desire with a backyard greenhouse. Learn more about greenhouses and how to choose a greenhouse for your backyard below.

What's a Backyard Greenhouse?

Many homeowners create different types of gardens in their backyards today. Gardens that contain spinach, beans, and even berries can help save homeowners money on their food expenses throughout the year. However, wild animals and birds that live in and around residential areas can wreak havoc on backyard gardens by eating the plants in them. Homeowners who want to keep their plants safe from animals often grow them in backyard greenhouses.  

Backyard greenhouses are glass- or plastic-encased structures that resemble small homes. Some sources refer to all greenhouses as hothouses or glasshouses. Greenhouses allow you to grow different types of plants throughout the year, including seasonal fruits and vegetables. 

The structures require special thermostats and environmental controls to keep them warm and well-lighted during the year. Most plants require warm and sunny outdoor conditions to grow well during the year. In order for plants to grow well in hothouses, the environment inside the structures must be similar to or the same as the conditions found outdoors.  

Most greenhouses, including backyard greenhouses, don't come with watering systems, such as water sprinklers. Greenhouse owners generally manually water their plants to keep them healthy and hydrated. However, some homeowners can install small sprinkling systems in the ceilings of their greenhouses to help water their plants.

If you think a backyard greenhouse is the best way to create your garden, find a greenhouse supplier today. 

What's the Best Greenhouse for Your Backyard?

A greenhouse supplier offers a large array of backyard hothouses to customers, including stand-alone greenhouses and attached greenhouses. Stand-alone greenhouses don't connect directly to your house. You can place the structure anywhere in your backyard for convenience.

Attached greenhouses, or lean-to greenhouses, connect directly to your house or another structure. The hothouses must be level or almost level with your home's roof to keep problems at bay, such as water and insect damage. 

Both types of greenhouses require great care to maintain. You must monitor the temperature inside the structures as well as clean their glass or plastic windows regularly. A supplier can discuss the best ways to care for or maintain your greenhouse after they install it.
