Backyard Greenhouses

Posted by Suzie Canale on Thu, May 19, 2016

Backyard greenhouses are an interesting topic of discussion for those diehard garden lovers like me, specifically regarding the issue on whether purchasing their own is worth the investment.  Years ago, to own one of these dream set-ups cost tens of thousands of dollars but times have changed.  With technological advances within manufacturing, greenhouses are beginning to pop up in residential areas making the idea more plausible than it used to be in the past.  Don’t get me wrong, they aren’t by any means cheap but they are at least attainable without putting your house up for mortgage.


this awesome greenhouse is made of legos. 


What has made this possible?  

Well, for starters, the materials used to build them have fluctuated to include more options than using solely glass. With the introduction of heavy-duty plastics, tarps and Plexiglas, the costs to purchase and ship have dramatically decreased.  Sizing has also been altered, offering customers greenhouses that are small walk-ins to more substantial exteriors. Another factor that must be considered is the actual act of putting one of these suckers together, which used to be impossible without a team of engineers at your disposal.  Nowadays, instructions are not only clearer (while most include round the clock call in or email support) but the time constraints have lessened due to the convenience of click and lock beams that avoid troublesome bolts, nuts and screws.  The model that I just put up a few days ago even had a number printed on every piece so that I could easily follow along with the pictures featured in the manual.

It’s a beautiful thing that anyone who wants to get a jump start on the growing season now has several options available to them without fearing that the construction will be impossible.  It’s not.  If you’re in the market to buy your very own greenhouse, take a look at the benefits of doing so plus a list of retailers (the list is growing) who are ready to ship today!

As a man, who loves toys and has two young boys; I have always adored Lego's. I love going to toy stores, toy shows and being knee deep in Lego's at home. In my youth there were no Lego Star Wars sets or Harry Potter Sets; we had blocks of all shapes, colors and sizes. These mixed boxes lead inspired us to build our own sets and dioramas. 
Lego remains at the forefront of imagination. Lego appeals to both adults and children. Even Soccer Star David Beckham is an avid Lego fan, endorsing the Lego Taj Mahal. 
Recently, London-based designer Sebastian Bergne was commissioned by LEGO UK to construct a public installation for the 2011 London Design Week. The greenhouse stands in the north east piazza of London's covent garden and is functional. The foundation was built entirely from LEGO bricks and is illuminated at night. This Lego Greenhouse will be open to the public until September 25th, 2011.

The Lego Greenhouse features a pitched roof that looks like a suburban glasshouse. 
At night it becomes a magical box glowing and lit, coming to life with the plants it contains. 

This greenhouse is the world's first living LEGO greenhouse, the framework was built and installed by Duncan Titmarsh, the only LEGO certified professional in the United Kingdom and is home to living plants and vegetables.

See how the soil is made of brown LEGO bricks.
My only hope is that the LEGO Greenhouse will finds its way to Boston.
