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.
8ft wide lean to’s are produced by Swallow Greenhouses in their Heron model and also by Elite with their Kensington 8 model. Here’s the massive Swallow Heron 8ft wide lean-to:
