Making Greenhouses

If the flat cover is used only in the spring, the greenhouses and tunnels plants may be the entire season.Creating a greenhouse is a time-consuming process, but to make their own hands a tunnel can any cottager.Here are ways to create a low tunnel film.

The easiest and cheapest way is to create a tunnel on flexible arcs.The design may consist of willow (or any other), rods or flexible PVC pipe length of about 1.5 meters. Trying to drive them in two rows at a distance of 0.5-0.7 m (Figure 1), stepping between rows 1.21.5 m. The rod driven into opposite each other, bend in the middle and connect with a cord, creating the design height of 40-60 cm (Figure 2).These designs can be enhanced by combining the following series of arcs cord that tied to stakes driven into the end of the tunnel.

The tunnel is used as a cover or a perforated cast film with a thickness of 0.1 mm.The dimensions of the film are selected so that the width after the covering of the tunnel, on each side was about 20-30 cm in length an

d it was bigger the tunnel about 1 m. Starting with stretch film to be one of the sides, over the entire length prisypavits free end of the earth.After that, we fix the film on the arcs and sprinkle it "Berezhok" land on the opposite side.The ends of the film are bound and fixed on pegs (Figure 3).

edges of the film covered with earth.First attached to a peg cord, and then the film.

little more stable design of the low turn out of the tunnel made of galvanized wire (thickness 6 mm).It should be cut into pieces with a length of 350-360 cm. At a distance of 130 cm from each end of the wire bend so that a loop diameter of 1.5 cm. Following this, the wire bends in an arc, which are driven into the ground to a depth of about 100 cmso that the rings were made from the ground.At a distance of about 50 cm at both ends of the tunnel are driven pegs.One of them tied a cord that must spin around each arc and be sure to attach to a peg on the opposite side that will significantly strengthen the entire structure.Tunnel camouflage film width of 250 cm and a length to be able to tie it to the pegs at the ends of the tunnel.After that, the entire structure must tie cord crosswise, securing it on pegs and passing through the loop made of wire.One of the edges of the film covered with earth, and the opposite one would be best to pin down with heavy objects that can push that will greatly facilitate ventilation.Width described the tunnel is 120 cm. The circuit design is shown in Figure 4.

When creating a tunnel should also consider the use of universal connectors for wood EASY UP.These connectors allow easy enough to create a solid structure made of wood.With their help, you can make not only the tunnel, but also greenhouse, greenhouse, gazebo, tool box and other wooden structures that are useful in the garden and the garden.

form design and some corners are modeled elements EASY UP, connecting beams 50h50h2000 mm.Simply insert the ends of the beams in the plastic parts to obtain a compound structure.Also, the compound can be fixed with screws or bolts.For a soft surface (eg, ground) structure is attached plastic pegs, and a solid - threaded pins.

During construction, no need to measure angles or to monitor the correct position of the individual elements.Only select the size of the structure and properly trimmed beams.Installation can be done by one person.Easy creation via connectors EASY UP tunnel structures and small financial costs are attractive factors.
