Designing a Greenhouse as a Tropical Oasis

December 3, 2015

Vacationing, though often desired, is sometimes not a feasible option for individuals with larger families and those who work full time. The cost to travel, along with planning several days worth of events and activities, and striving to please everyone can sometimes be more of a headache than a vacation. A vacation-like getaway can easily be made right at home, and doing so is a breeze with the help of a Solar Innovations, Inc. greenhouse or pool enclosure along with the Company’s expert team of engineers and designers.

Since greenhouses are made almost entirely of windows and skylights, the sun is able to warm the interior, and create a tropical climate for both humans and plants. Adding a pool or spa will create the total vacation package inside the greenhouse. Users will need to consider condensation when adding a water feature inside a glass structure. Ensuring proper structural ventilation with ridge vents, eave vents, operable windows, and skylights will help monitor condensation levels, keep air circulating, and create a comfortable experience for all users.

Growing palm trees inside the greenhouse is an ideal way to create a vacation atmosphere, as are hibiscus, and other bright tropical plants. It is important to research the various preferences of each plant in order to ensure the environment is mutually beneficial for each different species. Once the vegetation has been selected, creating the perfect interior environment will be easy with the help of a greenhouse control system, which integrates all lighting, heating, cooling, and irrigation accessories into one cohesive unit. Low-maintenance aluminum palm trees are another great option and perfect decorations for users lacking a green thumb.

Solar Innovations, Inc. greenhouses are versatile structures that can be used for virtually any purpose. Contact a Solar Innovations, Inc. Sales Designer for more information on various uses for Solar’s greenhouses or visit the Greenhouses section of the website.
