Impressively designed and built using quality materials, the Heron 16ft x 8ft wide Lean To greenhouse will satisfy the demands of most enthusiastic gardeners.
ThermoWood® is used throughout, although traditional in appearance this timber has been heat treated to vastly increase its resilience to warping and decay. Its lifespan is therefore extended and no preservatives need to be applied. Only Swallow use ThermoWood® for their greenhouses.
Growing conditions inside the greenhouse are ideal for both plants and people, there are three roof vents that are fitted with automatic openers, this means that you can be away on holiday and they will still open to control humidity and avoid over heating.
Staging is always useful and, in this lean to, it fitted as standard along one side. There's also an optional high level shelf and more staging can be added forming an 'L' shape. Plenty of light streams through toughened glass which is sealed with silicone.
Double doors take advantage of the eight foot width and they can be located at either end, whatever suits your particular location. For security they are fitted with a mortice lock.
When all is considered, this is a splendid lean to, built using top quality timber that will last for many years.
