Our customer in Connecticut USA had her heart set on an Alitex greenhouse, the perfect place for her citrus and fruit trees, ferns and perennial plants.
Having learnt of Alitex many years ago at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, our customer originally enquired about a greenhouse in 2007. It was always going to be an Alitex for our customer, the design and quality impressed her, meaning no other company stood a chance.
"I never looked at another company - I had my heart set on an Alitex."
Our customer chose to have her greenhouse powder-coated in the colour Wood Sage, the perfect blend for the surrounding landscape. Its colour changes in the light throughout the day, whilst remaining neutral and unobtrusive.
The greenhouse was perfect for our customer to house her citrus trees and agaves. They were originally kept in a heated garage, but were always on their last legs by the end of winter. Now they live happily in the greenhouse, along with collections of Geraniums, Steptocarpus, Ferns, more Citrus, Oleanders and Olives. And the Agapanthus, Nerine and Ledebouria have finally started to bloom.
"The design and functionality of the greenhouse is very well thought through."
