Before assembly, drainage, seedbeds and storage should be planned , as well as all necessary water and electricity devices. A well-thought out layout for a modern greenhouses and supporting systems will reduce costs and also make work much more comfortable.

For example, you can provide the right amount of water for plants without worrying about them getting too little or too much. Similarly with ventilation. With large structures, there might be a problem with ventilation. It can be necessary to add fans creating an air flow. Appropriately set, they get turned off when the microclimate stabilizes. Automation, although initially expensive, brings considerable savings over time.
