Multi-joined Extensive Structures

Greenhouses with a joint connection to form a continuous roofing within one structure. Metallic structure joining on the edges and roofing to cover the entire area of the structure.
This design is common in large farms or projects that require many greenhouses.

The aim is to reduce cost of materials to place on the walls built on separate greenhouses. Maintenance is also easier as it takes less time moving from one point to another inside the greenhouse.
Installing drip irrigation system is cheaper on one joint structure unlike separate structures.

Shade houses

Structures built on the fields or gardens. Shade nets are the primary covering materials in the structure of shade houses.
Shade houses are suitable for temperate or warm places to offer a cool condition to outfield crops.

How does shape matters in Choice of a greenhouse?

The shape of a greenhouse affects its resistance to environmental hazards such as winds, temperature, and storms. Some greenhouse designs last longer than others depending on the materials and their placing.
Multi-span greenhouses are more stable and resistant to wind compared to single greenhouses.

Which greenhouse design is the best?

Tunnel greenhouses are the best greenhouse designs. They are less costly and less complex to construct. Air circulation is faster and more enhanced because ventilation is on the walls near the roof edges.
