We have been watching the sun exposure in our yard to try and determine the best place to put a greenhouse. We have determined that on the southwest side of the house is the area that gets the most exposure and heat. We'd like to put the greenhouse there, and maybe even right against the house because it would reflect some heat of the house into the greenhouse. I have pondered a lean-to greenhouse, but the problem I have is the soil in our area heaves something terrible, and attaching something directly to the house can be problematic. I already have to go through this summer and dig very deep pilings for my deck that heaves all over the place during the summer.
Question is, can I just put up a full greenhouse but stick it right up next to the house? Any thoughts on pros and cons of this? Thanks in advance.
