Project Description

The pit greenhouse pictured above is located in Kentucky and was built for use at a personal residence.  The majority of the greenhouse is located below grade, with a glass lean-to beginning at ground level.

By building a greenhouse into the ground, the temperature remains more consistent year round.  The glass lean-to above grade provides light and ventilation to the greenhouse.  The end user raises tropical plants in this greenhouse including figs, oranges, and grapefruit along with an aquaponics set up where vegetables and herbs are grown.
