Tunnel for plot or garden
Hobby greenhouses are small constructions designed for users who want to grow their own vegetables or fruits. They are generally used for growing tomatoes, peppers or other thermophilic plants, in order to obtain a regular supply of fresh aromatic herbs and spices, and sometimes red berries. Such structures, single (closed) or multi vegetation (with lateral ventilation) are usually between 5 m2 to 20 m2. There are also lighter economic constructions of 5 m2 to 18 m2. They are available on a permanent basis, although a delay could be expected in full season due to the high number of orders.
The semi-professional tunnels are constructions covering an area of 20 m2 up to 60 m2 and require more daily care. Some gardeners like to have a large area to grow and experiment. The vast majority of users, when purchasing such structures, use these for commercial purposes or as part of their activities. Over time, producers can extend their greenhouse with additional segments.
