Why do people like this greenhouse so much ? Well talking to greenhouse gardeners will give you the answers to this question. Gardeners like the simplicity of the design which means not only is the greenhouse easy to erect in your garden it is also much less likely to go wrong or parts on the greenhouse fail. Gardeners also like the  solid steel base that Halls produce for the greenhouse frame to sit on, providing a rigid platform on which to erect your greenhouse. Halls Popular greenhouses are also available with a choice of glazing types. The standard and by far the cheapest glazing is Horticultural glass which is standard 3mm thick greenhouse glass which offers great light transmission but is quite delicate and therefore not ideal when you have children or pets running around the place. The other glass choice is that of toughened safety glass which is certainly the choice of keen gardeners as it is robust and safe. Toughened glass is 4mm thick and is much heavier than horticultural glass meaning it is not only more resistant to knocks but also very resistant to being affected by windy conditions. The biggest bonus of specifying toughened glass though is that if it does break it smashes down into little glass pebbles rather like a car windscreen which are relatively harmless when compared to the shards left by horticultural glass which makes it a safe option.

The last glazing option of all is that of 4mm twin wall polycarbonate which is by far the safest option and is generally recommended for use in educational environments as well as for use by the elderly and disabled people. This type of polycarbonate has other useful features though, those being excellent heat retention due to the fact that in essence the glazing is double glazed and also due to it’s slightly opaque appearance the polycarbonate also offers good protection from UV rays which can scorch your plants.

Lean to

Lean to greenhouses offer the solution to some gardener’s space saving and best utilization of space requirements. Because a lean to can be attached to a wall, shed, outbuilding or your house they offer a very practical way of making the most of the space that you have available. The advantage of a lean to of course is that they aren’t merely limited to providing just a warm and protected environment for plants and vegetables but also providing exactly the same for the gardener, you ! Nothing beats relaxing in the warmth of the greenhouse, maybe listening to the radio and enjoying a coffee whilst tending your plants.

Lean to greenhouses are available in wood and aluminium with aluminium being the more popular mainly due to price and the fact that they require little or no maintenance. Wooden lean to greenhouses however offer a very classy traditional look that blends beautifully into any garden.
Lean to greenhouses come in many sizes from 2ft wide through to 8ft wide and lengths up to and sometimes over 40ft !

The smallest lean to greenhouses are generally sized 4×2, that being 2ft out from your wall and 4ft across the doors. 4×2 lean to’s are produced by Palram, Vitavia, Elite and Halls in various colours and door types.


The next size up is the 4ft wide lean to greenhouse produced by Elite in two model configurations. The Windsor is 4ft wide and features a low ridge for positioning the greenhouse against garages or single storey bungalows where height is minimal. Elite also produce the Elite Kensington 4 which offers a higher ridge. Swallow Greenhouses are made from redwood pine and are the finest wooden lean to greenhouses available. Made by craftsmen in the UK by hand these wooden greenhouses include installation at your property as part of the price meaning a stress free process from start to finish.


6ft wide lean to greenhouses tend to be rather popular and all of the big brands produce a range of models in this size. See below the Halls Silverline lean to and a wooden Swallow Dove 6ft wide lean to.
