Building a greenhouse in Minecraft is a great way to organize your farming and is definitely a fun building idea! The main advantage of building a farm in a greenhouse is that your farm can be indoors, but still exposed to natural sunlight due to the transparent glass.
Most importantly, greenhouses are visually appealing and can help reduce mob spawning and keep other players away from your crops. Note that mobs (including creepers) can still spawn inside at night if you don’t have proper lighting at night.
Since greenhouses can produce a lot of items, I recommend building a storage room nearby. This way, you’ll have plenty of chests to organize all your harvested crops.
Here is our list of the best Minecraft greenhouse builds!
1. Small Greenhouse
This video shows an excellent example of how to build a stunning yet small greenhouse. Although this type of greenhouse is not suited for farming large amounts of crops, it is still quite cozy!
The small garden outside and the leaves growing on the glass is a great touch and adds a sense of realism.
2. Narrow Greenhouse
Tall ceilings, lots of walking space, and farming plots make this greenhouse really stand out. Due to its large size, walking in this building can feel like you’re still outdoors (but more protected).
A unique feature of this greenhouse design is that it’s tall enough to allow for trees to grow. You could even grow a forest inside if you wanted to!
3. Modern Greenhouse
A more modern approach to designing a greenhouse in Minecraft. Note the use of taller walls, white stained glass, and sharp corners instead of traditional wooden curves. It certainly packs quite the punch in such a small size.
4. House-Shaped Greenhouse
If you want a multi-purpose greenhouse that doubles as a house, this is the design for you! Live inside or farm, the choice is yours.
The choice of building material could easily be made more interesting by using lighter or more colorful blocks like concrete.
5. Luxury Greenhouse

Building this design would probably take a lot of time and be a challenge, but sometimes that’s what it takes to get a luxury Minecraft build!
6. Large Industrial Greenhouse
This is a larger and more industrial looking greenhouse. It can easily be scaled to be wider or longer to suit your needs. For a larger farm, especially an automatic farm, this design will work great!
7. Cobblestone Greenhouse
Want a super simple early-game greenhouse? Well this is the design for you. This is a small greenhouse built with basic materials like cobblestone, glass, and torches.
