Geodesic Dome Greenhouse — Benefits and How-To

If you’re going to have a greenhouse in your back garden, it may as well look good too. This DIY greenhouse design does not only offer a beautiful structure in your yard, but also more benefits for you and your plants.

Geodesic Dome Greenhouse

There really is nothing like homegrown vegetables year round. And while all greenhouses do extend growing season, a geodesic dome is most efficient for growing produce. You get to absorb the good sun in any direction because of its external surface. Its interior shape, on the other hand, makes air temperature conducive for growing your produce well. There’s less temperature gain or loss, and potential cold spots are avoided.

The strength to weight ratio of a geodesic dome greenhouse is incredible, too! It is basically a lightweight structure which can protect your plants the most because of its aerodynamic shape. And obviously, there’s no place for snow to pile up and bring down greenhouse.

It looks good and it works really well, but is it easy to build? Well, it is definitely easier than you think! With just a few power tools we’re confident you can successfully build this geodesic dome greenhouse in your own yard. 🙂
