If you have a small space for a greenhouse and want to maximize your growing space, you may want to consider a geodesic dome as it gives you a great space for vertical growing while you use only a small surface space. They are not only aesthetically appealing, but there are more reasons as well that make them a good choice for backyard food growth.
The dome here is a lovely geodesic greenhouse build by Astrid de Groot in Wales.
Small surface area for a small footprint in your backyard or growing area.
Sun exposure from all angles due to the dome construction gives your plants a great benefit.Very strong greenhouse due to the triangles in the frame supports, that will spread the weight of the dome evenly. This means no internal support beams are required.
They hold up to wind and weather, which makes them an excellent choice no matter where you live.
It is simple to alter the size of your dome to make it bigger or smaller by changing the base size and altering the number of triangles used. This makes it easy to custom design for your needs.
