Should I build a hoop house?

Asked April 18, 2019, 4:48 PM EDT

Hey! I'm considering building a hoop house in my backyard for fruits and vegetables. I'm wondering if a hoop house is going overboard or if it will really help my vegetables do better. My yard faces south and gets tons of sun.

Hello,
Thank you for your question. Building a hoop house or cold frame is entirely up to you. and can extend the growing season of your plants in that you can get them started earlier in a protected area such as a hoop house.
I'm including a couple links to CSU fact sheets that can provide you with more information so you can make a decision.
Please let us know if this does not anwer your question or if you have other questions.
Thank you, CSU Ext Master Gardener Desk
