I have always wanted a greenhouse but back onto a golf course and regularly have golf balls landing in the garden.
My partner is a carpenter and I am a midwife and avid recycler. I had a tiny raspberry patch that needed digging over and repurposing.
I suggested again maybe we could build a greenhouse and to my delight my partner said ok design something and I'll build it.
The site could only have been 1.5 m x 3-4 m but I started collecting old floor joist for the walls and bricks for the floor, pallets for the shelves and double glazed units from an old skip for the windows and even old conservatory sheets for the roof. and after a few weeks my beautiful greenhouse/potting shed was born.
And what's more we covered the entire side facing the golf course in recycled chicken wire to protect it from stray golf balls.
It is completely built from upcycled materials
