You might consider getting a greenhouse if you’re thinking of growing your own fruits, vegetables, and flowers. These days, many people are opting for portable greenhouses over the traditional variety, but what’s the difference between them? As prominent greenhouse builders in Oklahoma, our team at Burnett Affordable Buildings offers this guide outlining the differences between portable and traditional greenhouses. 

Portable Greenhouses vs. Traditional Greenhouses

Traditional greenhouses are usually standalone structures consisting of metal framing with glass walls and ceilings. They offer exceptional environmental control and access to natural sunlight, making it possible to grow a variety of plants directly in the ground or in planters and pots. The glass structure shelters the plants from insects and wildlife. 

Portable greenhouses can do everything a traditional greenhouse can do, but these structures are movable. They’re a type of indoor farming that makes it possible for people living in urban areas or those without lots of land to grow flowers and crops in a contained space using artificial lighting. Technological advancements make indoor farming with portable greenhouses more efficient and accessible. 

If you own a portable greenhouse and relocate, you can bring your greenhouse with you. It’s not a structure you build onto the land like a typical greenhouse or high tunnel.
