About Dovetail Greenhouses

Dovetail Greenhouses was formed in 1993 when Roger Beasley and an ex-colleague decided to put their already considerable experience in the greenhouse industry into the creation of a new company.

We had been involved in the supply of greenhouses to the big retailers in the UK and in other parts of the world and had come to realise that the needs of the individual customer were often forfeited in the vain hope of achieving volume sales.

It seemed to us that the big retailers were demanding that we made greenhouses to the lowest common denominator and this was invariably based on price.

We believe that our customers have individual needs and that our role as greenhouse manufacturers is to listen and adapt our products to suit these requirements. We have continually developed products that we know suit the gardener and the individual far more than ever before. Who knows, in the long term, some of the big retailers may start to realise that our approach is the right one in this ever demanding age in which we live!

The present Dovetail Greenhouse range now has more than twice the content of aluminium within it than many of the greenhouses that are sold via the large retailers here in the UK. This is because here at Dovetail our intention is to make our greenhouses better and stronger than our competitors, tailored to suit the needs of you our individual customers. We have as a company chosen to make each greenhouse to order rather than mass producing buildings.

Thirty years on, Dovetail is now a second-generation family firm still making a range of quality greenhouses but specialising in the bespoke market. In fact, a great many of our customers tell us we were the only company willing to take on their project as the measurements were non-standard or the site required that little bit of extra imagination in order to bring the project to reality.

When it comes to our pricing however you may be very pleasantly surprised. Because we specialise in bespoke projects we are very efficient at delivering them and do not have the enormous overheads that some of our large competitors do. Give us a call or use our online enquiry form to obtain a fully individual quotation for your project, we will be more than happy to help.

Our Greenhouses

Over the course of more than thirty years trading, we have added to our core business of producing a standard range of quality greenhouses by specialising in the bespoke market. Each of our buildings is hand-made from our own unique set of heavyweight aluminium profiles and is designed specifically to fit the particular needs of each of our customers.

Whether your greenhouse is freestanding, a lean-to, Victorian or semi-commercial, whether simple in design or made to fit a complex existing site, it will be designed, hand-made, delivered and installed with equal care and attention by our own highly skilled team of craftsmen and women.

What our customers say about us

We are privileged to have had many, many happy customers over the years. Here’s what a number of them have said about our greenhouses.

Thanks again for all of the care and attention you gave to the design, manufacture and installation of the beautiful greenhouse which now sits in our garden. We are delighted with it and are looking forward to enjoying using it for many years to come.

First-class attention to detail
I have never really thanked you and all your team for the splendid new greenhouse at Kiplin. We were convinced that a new one was needed and your quotation was extremely competitive. Your attention to detail was first class and the liaison you had with both ourselves and builders meant that the whole project went extremely smoothly. Thank you for all the time you put in coming up to see us on several occasions, and of course for all the lads who did a really first class job when they came on site.

It exceeds my expectations
I really must say a large thank you for what you have done. It exceeds my expectations and you have given me a building of the highest quality that will last for years and allow me to continue to grow, expand and manage my collection of cacti and succulents.
