20x70 greenhouse layout? Raised beds?
« on: May 08, 2020, 07:48 »
Hey folks
Working on the resurrection of a farm project for some clients. They've got this massive greenhouse, 20x70! The previous owners planted everything in the dirt on the floor? I was thinking of switching things up? Transfer loads of that dirt into raised beds? Thoughts, advice??

Canít see why you would to be honest, sounds expensive & a lot of work to gain what? Have you reasons why? If itís the state of the soil a good application of well rotted mulch would give it a kick start.

That would be very expensive and labour intensive. I doubt it will work to move soil off the ground in the greenhouse to fill raised beds, because you'd end up needing a stepladder to get down to the paths in between. You could mark out beds with wood planks (like shallow raised beds) and top with organic matter which would be a lot simpler.

Raised beds are great outside where you have wet ground and want to get a few weeks ahead by having drier warmer soil.

But I wouldnít bother in a greenhouse, youíll be watering too often.

If they want to keep things simple this year try growing a few things like tomatoís and peppers in large pots placed on the ground, itís not too late.
