Greenhouses for sale
Broadly speaking, Shedstore have two main types of greenhouses for sale, these are “free standing” and “lean to”. Both these greenhouse types can be bought in all the material types – wooden, aluminium and polycarbonate. Additionally, both “free standing” and “lean to” models can be bought in mini, small, and large sizes.
Traditional (Free standing) models
Traditional or free standing greenhouses are a type of greenhouse that stands freely on their own and have both a front and back side and do not need a wall or fence to “lean” against.
Lean to models
A lean to greenhouse is a type of home greenhouse that enables buyers to maximise their available space. Lean to greenhouses lean against a fence, or wall on one side and offer a cost and space-saving opportunity.
What materials are used in greenhouse manufacture?
There are three predominant materials used to manufacture greenhouses, all have their own “pros and cons”. You will find all three types at Shedstore, these are wooden, aluminium and polycarbonate. We summarise these three types below:
1) Wooden (greenhouse sheds)
Our wooden greenhouses (also known as greenhouse sheds) are available in both traditional and contemporary designs and are manufactured from top-quality timber from leading brands. Our greenhouse sheds are dip or pressure treated and typically carry ten to fifteen year anti-rot guarantees.
Our aluminium greenhouses are an excellent choice and deliver superb strength and toughness, whilst also providing low maintenance. Aluminium greenhouses are highly durable, and their stylish appearance is attractive to many customers.
If you want to buy a sturdy and unbreakable greenhouse, choose a model from our polycarbonate greenhouses range. Typically featuring an aluminium frame, we stock polycarbonate for its durability and strength, which is stronger even than toughened glass. Polycarbonate panels are virtually unbreakable.
What different sizes of greenhouses are sold?
There is no “industry standard”, but here at Shedstore we broadly break down our home greenhouses into three main sizing groups, “mini”, “small” and “large”:
Our cold frames and mini greenhouses range from 4’x2’ to 6’x2’ in size. These are ideal for encouraging youngsters into gardening and for adult newcomers “trying their hand at gardening”. Mini greenhouses are also ideal for making the most of available space, particularly where space is restricted.
Our small greenhouses range from 4’x2’ to 6’x8’ in size. They again are ideal for restricted space, but you might be surprised at how much can be packed into a small greenhouse. Make most of the sunlight and enjoy growing fruit, flowers, and vegetables in our range of small lean-to and small free standing .
Our large greenhouses range from 6’x8’ to 12’x10’ in size and provide ample space to grow all the fruit and vegetables you desire. Perfect for seedlings, cuttings, over wintering of plants as well as for storage as greenhouse sheds. Once you buy a large greenhouse you will ask “How did I manage without ?”
Walk in greenhouses
If you looking to buy a “walk in” greenhouse, ensure you buy a model that is sufficiently tall. We recommend buying a greenhouse of at least 6’ in height.
