Wood Sage

Alitex provided a construction company with a National Trust Scotney Greenhouse, situated beside their wooden slatted garage, with nearby access to the firm’s stunning formal garden.

Our client chose the colour Wood Sage, which blends in perfectly with the garage and surroundings. Opting for a full run of Cold Frames with Vent Slides to maximise their growing area, our client also chose our external Greenhouse Shades to help regulate the temperature and sunlight within the greenhouse.

Internally, Strawberry Boards teamed with L-shape Benching offers ample space for tending to plants and displaying pots. Our Potting Shoe sits neatly at one end, set up ready with soil in preparation for the next tray of seedlings to be potted on.

A Water Reservoir tucked discreetly under the Benching ensures the greenhouse has its very own environmentally friendly water supply. Our clients enjoy having water conveniently on hand to meet all their growing requirements.

I don’t think you appreciate the detail until you experience it head on, it’s a quality build.
