In hopes of extending the growing season, my husband and I constructed an easy to build hoop house. I have a raised border around my Square Foot Garden and this made anchoring the hoop house down fairly easy. Any sized hoop house can be built atop a raised bed. I am not including any written directions; we didn’t have any to follow, but I am including a list of the materials we used, and a step-by-step photo diary of the construction.
We built the hoop house with ease in lifting a priority; the top will open up and lay on its side much like a door opening. This solves the problem of creating an opening in the side of the hoop house and also give me easy access for planting, maintaining and harvesting. I’m hoping to grow salad greens through the colder months of the year.
Our hoop house covers a 4 x 6 garden plot. Happy Hooping!
