Did your greenhouse investment, unfortunately, fail last winter? It doesn't matter, this spring you can purchase or customize a new greenhouse setup in your backyard.

10'x20 greenhouses are always considered the most popular greenhouse size. In this blog, we will talk about 10'x20' greenhouses.

What backyard is the 10'x20' greenhouse suitable for?

10'x20' greenhouses are suitable for most backyards. As long as your backyard is not unusually small, it is large enough to accommodate a 10'x20' greenhouse.

A family of 4 to 5 members can grow all the fruits and vegetables they need in a 10'x20' greenhouse.

Of course, it also depends on your planting area. If you have a large area in your backyard that can be used as a gardening site, a 10'x20' greenhouse is a worthwhile option.

If you only have a smaller area planned for gardening in your backyard, a mini-greenhouse or small greenhouse would be more suitable.

How much does a 10'x20' greenhouse cost?

The price of a 10'x20' greenhouse is related to the material of the greenhouse.

Without a doubt, portable polyethylene greenhouses are the most economical, with most 10'x20' portable greenhouses costing between $100 and $300.

Aluminum-framed greenhouses, wood-framed greenhouses and glass greenhouses of the same size can cost $700 or more. Some greenhouses can cost thousands of dollars.

How long will a 10'x20' greenhouse last?

Usually, 10'x20' greenhouses are portable. Most portable greenhouses on the market cover are made of high-quality polyethylene, and the frame material is usually high-quality galvanized steel or powder-coated steel.

Although these greenhouses cannot last as long as wooden, glass, and aluminum-framed greenhouses, they can last at least 5 to 7 years if they are regularly maintained.

Of course, a 10'x20' greenhouse may also be an aluminum or glass greenhouse, which can last more than a decade or even decades, depending on how you use it and how often you maintain it.

Advantages of a 10'x20' portable greenhouse

Easy to set up and take down. If you want to avoid the complicated installation process, aluminum framed greenhouses, wood greenhouses, and glass greenhouses are not the most suitable options.

In about 30 minutes, you can quickly set up a 10'x20' greenhouse. If you have a helper, the time needed to install the greenhouse will be even shorter. Even if you want to dismantle this backyard greenhouse, you can remove it right away.

Easy to maintain. The 10'x20' greenhouse cover is made of polyethylene cloth. High-quality polyethylene fabric is UV-resistant, water-resistant, and tear-resistant. Use a broom to remove piles of leaves and other natural elements from the greenhouse mulch after high winds or rain or snow.

Greenhouse mulch can be cleaned with detergent and water. Most 10'x20' greenhouses are domed in shape, and leaves and rain, and snow can slide down the top of the greenhouse. As a result, there is less natural element buildup on top of the greenhouse.

No building permit is required. One of the great things about choosing a portable greenhouse is that you may not need a building permit to legally set up a greenhouse. Some states do not consider a portable greenhouse to be a "building".

However, if you are setting up a wood frame greenhouse or an aluminum frame greenhouse, you will need to apply for a greenhouse building permit. You will need to read your state's regulations carefully.
