This Grasmere Traditional Tall Wall Greenhouse is the perfect addition to the back yard of an avid gardening enthusiast who doesn’t have much space to spare. Styrene glazed windows are fitted to allow natural light into the building, encouraging the growth of plants and vegetables.
The panels used in this wooden greenhouse are made using 12mm shiplap cladding, the interlocking nature of this construction creates a solid panel that prevents weather getting in and damaging plants and tools. Because the styrene glazed windows are UV treated, there is no need to worry about the panels cracking or discolouring over time; the UV treatment also helps to protect plants inside from harmful rays. Opening windows feature on top of this growhouse so that gardeners can regulate the temperature inside to suit the produce they are growing.

As with all natural materials, timber can be affected during various weather conditions. For the duration of heavy or extended periods of rain, swelling of the wood panels may occur. Warping of the wood may also occur during excessive dry spells due to an interior moisture loss. Unfortunately, these processes cannot be avoided but can be helped. It is suggested that the outdoor building is sprayed with water during extended periods of warm sunshine and sheltered as much as possible during rain or snow. Our buildings are delivered pre-treated with a water based timber treatment however this only helps to protect during transit of your garden item.
