For DIY lovers, who don't like spending money to buy items they could easily build themselves, let's see how to build a mini balcony greenhouse. First you must first choose which plants will live in it. If they are small plants, our greenhouse can be built entirely of wood, while if the plants are taller or if we have to cover an entire garden, it will be more convenient to use PVC pipes. Once the decision has been made and the measurements have also been taken, it will suffice to use PVC pipes, joints and plastic casings. If you want to make the greenhouse even more perfect, you can also use the hinges. By assembling tubes and joints together you will get a house-shaped structure that once covered with plastic coatings will be an excellent protection for plants. The hinges are the extra touch that will allow you to open the greenhouse more easily to water the plants.
