Mottisfont Greenhouse Nestled in an Urban Garden

6 August 2018 | Daisy Faughnan

Having longed for an Alitex for years, our customer chose to treat herself as soon as retirement came. This time also involved renovations to the kitchen, extending into a dining area with beautiful French windows that allow light to pour in whilst drawing your eye to the end of the garden – where her new greenhouse is nestled.

Olive Green (RAL 7023)

Our customer chose an Olive Green Mottisfont, the perfect size to tuck into her petite garden and the ideal colour to blend into its surroundings. The greenhouse has been accessorised with a reservoir, loved by the youngest members of the family, a potting shoe which makes a world of difference from the days of potting up on the lawn, and plenty of shelving to maximise the use of space. Growing inside are lots of vegetables including tomatoes, aubergine, peppers and cucumbers.

The garden itself is filled with numerous plants and flowers, colours and scents. Inspired by a trip to India, the beds have been designed into a staggered cruciform shape around the border of the lawn. They outline the garden, drawing your eye up to the greenhouse.

The greenhouse has made a huge difference for our customer; “It’s so hard to choose my favourite thing about it, I just love it all!

“As I work in it, I appreciate the high quality of the parts and how well engineered they are. The whole process of planning and having it built was terrific.”
