I built this lean-to greenhouse against our south-facing patio wall here in Ontario, Canada.

Build a Lean-to Greenhouse
I based my greenhouse on Ana White’s Barn Greenhouse which you can see here: http://www.ana-white.com/2012/05/plans/barn-greenhouse
Ana’s greenhouse is a free-standing 8×12 foot structure.
My lean-to greenhouse is 3×12 feet and waist height, built on a wood base for easy access.
I was able to build the whole thing by myself. Thankfully, the Suntuf clear roof panels are lightweight so the installation was fairly easy.
I live in Canada and I’m hoping the structure will retain enough warmth for me to grow cold-tolerant veggies in the winter including salad greens.
I’ve also got softwood plant cuttings in the greenhouse. You can get the how-tos here: https://empressofdirt.net/grow-softwood-cuttings/
