HI everyone, I was hoping for some advice. I am new to green housescreen and I have a defunct swimming pool in my back yard. It's actually a hole with a plastic bag in it. I want to pull the liner out and build a greenhouse over it. My son said just be careful the walls don't collapse. I don't know what is currently behind the liner but I think I will need to build a retaining wall around the inside. Any suggestions? Thank you all in advance

I have the same problem and have a solution, and it's cheap. I have collected a variety of old, non working dishwashers, refrigerators, such. Take the door off and drill holes in the back of it. Lay it on it's back and fill with dirt  (preferably from a local stock yard or someone's corral ).  Cover with a layer of cardboard and cut holes in the cardboard to plant in. The cardboard eliminates weeds and holds in moisture. It will break down and make more dirt. Just add fertilizer and new cardboard next year and keep going.  This is not really my original idea. I adapted it from a book by Ruth Stout called No work gardening. A wonderful book full of teriffic information. Written about 1950. I got my copy from Alibris.com. with shipping I paid about 6 dollars. You can also paint the outside of your new container garden to make it look more attractive. Hope this helps
