What is a lean to greenhouse?
Lean to greenhouses are simply greenhouses that use a wall of your property as their back wall.
They typically feature slanted roofs, with a wooden frame used to ensure the structure is strong.
There are a number of benefits to choosing lean to greenhouses rather than more conventional designs.
If you have a south-facing wall in your garden or are limited on space - such as if your property has a courtyard garden - lean to greenhouses could be the ideal choice.
Like standard greenhouses, lean to greenhouses can be used to cultivate all manner of plants, from flowers to fruits and vegetables.
Here at Growhouse, we offer a range of lean to greenhouses to help you get your garden in order and start planting!
What are the advantages of lean to greenhouses?
When it comes to lean to greenhouses, there are more advantages to such structures than you may think.
Because lean to greenhouses use a wall of your home as their back wall, they are excellent at maintaining their temperature as they can utilise heat escaping from your house.
This could enable you to grow plants that do not normally survive in the cold UK weather, such as grapevines.
You will also find that because lean to greenhouses have a sloped roof, the height at the top of the apex gives you more room to move around in and provides your plants with more vertical space to grow.
Lean to greenhouses can also offer plenty of storage space, as benches can be easily installed. You will also find that because you have one solid wall, you are able to put up wall-mounted shelves - something that is not possible in a conventional greenhouse.
And you will find that no internal supports are required for your lean to greenhouse, giving you plenty of space to manoeuvre inside.
