Greenhouse Height by Width - Bootstrap Farmer

Greenhouse Height by Width

The height of your greenhouse is generally determined by the width you plan to build.  The below guide will help you better estimate the height of your finished greenhouse.  You can adjusted the higher or lower by using larger ground posts, but these are the estimated heights using the instructions provided (3' ground posts).

Greenhouse Width (ft) Approximate Height (ft)
8 8
10 7
12 6.5
20 9.5
24 11


You can use longer ground posts if you want a higher greenhouse height.  For example, if you are building a 12' wide greenhouse and want a height of 8.5' instead of 6.5' , use 4 ft ground posts instead of 3 ft ground posts.  This will allow you to insert the bent poles at a higher position off of the ground.
