What Materials Are Needed to Build a Greenhouse?

As Lego Greenhouse Company, we supply all the materials required for the greenhouse installation for you.

There are a few basic materials that you will need to build a greenhouse:

A frame 

The frame is the skeleton of the greenhouse and can be made from a variety of materials such as wood, metal, or PVC pipes. They need to be strong enough to support the weight of the greenhouse and withstand wind and snow loads.

Doors and Windows 

You will need some way to get in and out of the greenhouse, as well as some ventilation to control the temperature and humidity inside.

Greenhouse Nylon 

If you want to cover your greenhouse with the most affordable cost, you should choose this product. The additives in it help you to grow more efficiently. Greenhouse nylon is very easy to        apply.

Polycarbonate Sheet 

It is one of the most used materials in greenhouses recently. With its UV additive, you can protect your plants from harmful sun rays. It is cheaper than glass coating. Also, if you want to make a glass greenhouse, you will have to use a stronger greenhouse steel construction due to the weight of the glass. Polycarbonate is a light, durable and inexpensive material. You can use it comfortably for at least 5 years.


The glazing is the material that covers the frame and creates the walls and roof of the greenhouse. Common glazing materials include glass, polycarbonate sheets, or plastic film.

A foundation

The foundation is the base of the greenhouse and can be made from concrete, wood, or other materials.


Greenhouses need proper ventilation to regulate temperature and airflow. This can be achieved through the use of windows, vents, or fans.

Heating and cooling systems 

Depending on your climate, you may need to install a heating and/or cooling system to keep your greenhouse at the optimal temperature for plant growth.

Other materials you may need include shelves or plant stands, watering systems, and grow lights. Depending on the climate you live in, you may need some way to heat the greenhouse in the winter and cool it in the summer. This can be as simple as a small electric heater or a fan, or it could be a more complex system with a thermostat and automatic vents.

Shelving and racks

 You will need some way to support your plants and keep them organized inside the greenhouse. Shelving and racks are a good choice, as they allow you to make the most of the space and keep the plants at the optimal height for growing.

Growing medium

You will need some kind of growing medium, such as soil or a soilless mix, to plant your seeds or seedlings in.

Watering system

You will need some way to water your plants, such as a watering can or hose, or an automatic irrigation system.


Depending on the type of plants you are growing and the amount of natural light your greenhouse receives, you may need to supplement with artificial lighting. This can be done with fluorescent or LED grow lights.

Tools and supplies

You will need some basic tools and supplies to get started, such as a shovel, a rake, pruning shears, and plant labels.
