Aesthetics and functionality are essential considerations when you are selecting flooring materials for your greenhouse. Many homemade greenhouse owners like to use such natural materials as stone or brick for the floor; these materials are supposed to be strong enough to withstand moisture, easy-to-clean, and safety to walk on.

Here are the options of flooring materials for greenhouse you may need to know before making a decision.

Stone

A walkway of stone can add beauty to your greenhouse. And it can also add considerably to the expense if you have to buy the stones. Use stones with flat surfaces only, so they will be easy to walk on. And when you install them, make sure they are level and firm enough not to slip or tilt underfoot. Stones will need occasional cleaning to keep them free from algae and mosses.

Brick

Either new or used, brick forms an attractive greenhouse floor. You can arrange it in many patterns, a few of which are pictured at bottom left. Most greenhouse owners set a brick walkway in to a sand base within a wooden frame. Bricks rank among the expensive building materials, but they are easy to clean and porous enough to provide some humidity.

Concrete Building Blocks

A floor of concrete building blocks is sturdy and so easy to install. The blocks are quite porous and will help provide extra humidity when dampened. Algae may grow in the air spaces, making the blocks difficult to clean.

Gravel

A walkway of gravel is easy to install, functional, and economical to use. You can wet it down to provide humidity. Since it is not a solid material, you will need to rake or level it frequently to keep the walkway stable. Gravel can be difficult to clean. Although frequent hosing could remove dirt, it could encourage the growth of moss and algae at the same time.

Ground Bark

Like gravel, ground bark is inexpensive and easy to install. Because it does not form a solid surface, it also will need frequent maintenance to keep it level if you use it as a walkway. Unlike gravel, bark will eventually deteriorate and need replacement.
