Best Greenhouse Design in Stardew Valley

The greenhouse layout is made up of a 10 row by 12 column plot, and only 7 × 6 are available for growing crops. With this limited space in mind, it is imperative to design your greenhouse layout beforehand.

Watering each plant is a daily chore, making the addition of sprinklers a must. The sprinklers only use one grow space each, and about 4-6 sprinklers are recommended for the plot.

Sprinklers can be placed on the inside corners of each 4×4 square, or if you opt for 6, each 4×4 square can be placed in a row.

It may not look like it, but you can actually grow fruit trees on the outside of your plot where the tiles are. Four fruit trees can be planted on the top and bottom, as well as four on each side. Each tree should have approximately two tiles between them.

By planting fruit trees outside, this allows you to allocate all of your plot space to crops, and is a proven greenhouse design in Stardew Valley.
