Build a DIY Bamboo Greenhouse in 12 Steps


We’re all looking for ways to live a little bit greener and a little more economically. One of the best ways to achieve both goals, and add some flare to your yard, is to install a greenhouse.

Greenhouses help keep your yard green throughout the year and provide year-long vegetables and herbs—even when the weather turns cold.

But, buying a commercially designed greenhouse for your yard can range into the thousands of dollars, making any money you save of growing your own vegetables negligible.

Instead of forking out hundreds or thousands of dollars, you can DIY this bamboo greenhouse:

You will need:

  • 4 bamboo poles – 1.5m x 2.4m
  • 14 bamboo poles – 1.5m x 1.8m
  • 3 bamboo poles – .76m x 2.4m
  • 12 bamboo poles – .76m x 1.8m
  • 1 roll of heavy grade clear plastic sheeting
  • 20 kg Cement
  • Stakes and twine
  • Heavy duty Velcro strips
  • Post digger
