There are three situations where is it may well be best to go for this
type of greenhouse. They are:
1. Fuel costs are of first importance. A lean-to greenhouse on a
south-facing wall will cost far less to heat in cold months than any
free-standing greenhouse. The side of the house or fence will absorb heat from the
sun and radiate it back into the growing area. Some heat will also pass
from the inside of a house into the greenhouse.
2. Space is at a premium. Having a lean-to greenhouse on the side of the house
or fence will take less space than a free-standing greenhouse.
3. Where a both a greenhouse and a conservatory are wanted from one
building. An area of a conservatory can be 'reserved' for greenhouse work
and fitted out with benching. The living area of the lean-to greenhouse can also
be used for decorative warm-loving plants.
Because lean-to greenhouses are not so common as standard greenhouse,
shape will probably not be a consideration - size and cost will almost
certainly be the key factors. The lean-to greenhouse above is
available in a variety of lengths complete with 2 end frames, ground
anchors, all fixings and full assembly instructions. Click here for more about this lean-to greenhouse.
When selecting a lean-to greenhouse, the same rules apply as for a normal
greenhouse, so consult the other pages in this article. On the left is a Halls
aluminium lean-to greenhouse. It's one of a range of good looking greenhouses.
