Rion Greenhouse Placement Suggestions

Choosing your greenhouse location is one of the first steps to the planning process.
When evaluating your options, consider the following recommendations:

  • The most ideal sunlight transmission will be obtained if the greenhouse is on the south side of the school with an east-west orientation.

  • Putting the greenhouse near deciduous trees if possible will provide partial shade in the summer and allow for maximum sunlight in the winter.

  • If your area is prone to high winds, placing the greenhouse near buildings, fences, berms, or trees will help protect it from gusts.

  • Stay clear of bright lights that will shine at night (ie, stadium, parking lots, high traffic areas where headlights will shine).
