A wonderful video. I will build this using your video. How much plastic will I need. What length and width?

gladtidings4all says:

I like the tall raised bed at the end of the video those ai want to see how it was done!

gladtidings4all says:

To prevent a wind storm from blowing it away I would stick a piece of rebar inside at the end of those pvc to the ground inside at least 5 inches so that if a strong storm comes along it won’t be blown away. I would stick it at each corner and mid section. I like your idea of your hoop house.

Mateo Carlos says:

Those plastic clamps will become brittle and break in time. Swap for the metal ones.

Hey guys, if you try this out, you can also use electrical PVC conduit (the grey stuff). It is more sun tolerant than the white is and should give you a longer lifespan. Also, make sure this is secured to the ground well. It can tolerate wind and sheds it off pretty well being rounded.

ELECTRIC EYE says:

FYI, It would be better (I think) to put the PVC bows on the inside of the structure (much more support/stronger). Also, would it be better to use metal brackets to hold the PVC, or would those rust? It seems like in time/cold climates, that the plastic ones might crack?

alex smith says:

sorry my english is poor, but how much area did the greenhouse costs? also what about the height?

eric adams says:
