Designing and Building a Greenhouse


Where would I find names of architects who are knowledgeable about growing indoor plants who have experience designing and preparing plans and specs for a greenhouse addition to my home [ southern exposure] ?


Toronto Master Gardeners are part of the greater Master Gardeners of Ontario Inc.  We are a non-profit volunteer organization with a mandate to disseminate up-to-date, practical and sound horticultural information to the general public.  We do this through educational workshops, seminars, lecture series and by answering gardening questions by phone, via our web site or in-person at various events throughout our local communities. We are not permitted to recommend specific companies.

Below are links to two associations which may help you in your quest to find a suitable architectural firm that has experience designing residential green houses.

The first is Landscape Ontario which is the horticultural trades association for the province. All of the landscapers recommended are accredited members of the organization so you can be confident of the quality of service they provide.

The second is OAA, the Ontario Association of Architects. “The Ontario Association of Architects is a self-regulating organization governed by the Architects Act, which is a statute of the Government of Ontario. The Association is dedicated to promoting and increasing the knowledge, skill and proficiency of its members, and administering theArchitects Act, in order that the public interest may be served and protected.”

Good luck with your green house construction.
