Greenhouses can be expensive to make, but it can also be inexpensive. This $20 DIY greenhouse by lifefixx on YouTube has fold-up walls all around. I think it’s impressive to make your own greenhouse for under $20 because if you have a garden, it’s so convenient in the wintertime. I need to make this greenhouse because my mom has a garden that is still thriving, but the temperatures are dropping. There are no exact measurements for this DIY, but the video is designed to show the general idea of this design. So, build your own greenhouse to the dimensions of your garden. This can be a fun project to do with your family or friend.

Overall, this is a super cheap and functional greenhouse with fold up walls for your garden. Also note, if you’re using Poly, it would not be a good material for a long-term greenhouse. It’s cheap and works for temporary usage for the season. However, greenhouse plastic would last longer if you’re looking to keep the greenhouse year-round.
