Commercial greenhouses operate for a variety of reasons. One of the more popular uses for greenhouse construction has been for marijuana greenhouses. The marijuana industry in the United States is booming as more and more states are recognizing the benefits of marijuana and have been legalizing it on a medical marijuana level as well as a recreational level.

Listed here are several things to consider when constructing a greenhouse:
1. Choose the right spot for your greenhouse. You will want to start by selecting the perfect location for your greenhouse. You will want to ensure that your greenhouse is facing south in order to ensure that you are getting adequate levels of sunlight. It is very important to find the right location that will allow consistent sunlight to flow into your structure.
2. Consider the plants and trees that are in the area around the location of your greenhouse. You will also need to consider the shade that may be caused by plants and trees in the vicinity of the location that you choose for your greenhouse. It is ideal to have sunlight all day long but you will also want to consider giving the plants the sunlight from the rising sun as it can help them to grow faster.
3. Consider the differences between the sunlight in the winter and the summer. Another factor to consider is how the sunlight will change in the winter months and the summer months. This is important to consider as you will want to ensure that your plants are growing all year round.
4. Find a location that will allow you to access electricity. You will also need electricity for your greenhouse. It is important to find a location that allows for this access as well as gives you the opportunity for heating systems in the cold winter months. You can always hire an electrician as well if your greenhouse is located far from a structure with electricity already available.
5. Find the right structure. After considering the sunlight and electricity factors, then you will want to find the right structure and design for your needs. You will also want to consider drainage and how you will access water.
