The Dovetail 2ft wide lean-to greenhouse
We supply two types of 2ft wide lean-to greenhouses – the Courtyard and the Terrace.
The compact TERRACE 2ft wide lean-to greenhouse is a ‘dip-in’ style greenhouse which has been designed with limited space in mind and can be worked from the outside. It has an eave height of 5ft and a rear height of 6ft. Easily accessed by means of the sliding door, it comes supplied with one level of aluminium staging with treated wooden tops as standard. You can purchase additional staging, roof vents, extend the greenhouse in length, even colour the building for aesthetic value.
The 2ft wide COURTYARD lean-to greenhouse has the potential to accommodate two more levels of staging in addition to the one supplied as standard. The Courtyard can be extended in length, and you can purchase a roof vent if required. You may even wish to colour the greenhouse as a feature. The Courtyard lean-to greenhouse can be worked from both the inside and outside by means of a removable part of the treated wooden topped staging. Providing excellent head room the Courtyard 2ft wide lean-to has an eave height of 5ft 10in and a ridge height of 7ft.
Our standard method of retaining horticultural glass uses a wide, stainless steel clipping system. The clip is so designed to equalise the pressure between the glazing face and the frame of the greenhouse. When single sheet toughened glass is ordered with this type of building, we can also offer our unique aluminium capping system rather than clips that gives an attractive clear line to the glazing. Types of glazing available are:
3mm Horticultural glass, 4mm Toughened safety glass, 6mm twin walled Polycarbonate and SAN safety Glazing.
When fitting a lean-to greenhouse onto an adjoining wall there a few things that need to be taken into account. The base, which can be as simple as a row of slabs, must be level, and at a true 90 degrees to a vertical rear wall. The smoother the adjoining wall the better, as this will make the sealing of the greenhouse easier when the construction is completed.
All of our greenhouses can be altered to suit your individual needs in width, length and height. Built-in aluminium gutters are supplied. If required, our lean-to greenhouses can be designed to fit onto a dwarf wall. All of our greenhouses can be powder coated. Standard colours are white, green and brown. Other colours are available.
