Walled gardens are a wonderful part of our gardening history. Over the years, our aluminium greenhouses have been involved in the creation of many new walled gardens and the restoration of older sites.
Walled gardens help to protect plants from wind and frost by creating a sheltered microclimate, allowing plants to be grown that might otherwise struggle in colder temperatures. The walls are normally constructed from stone and lined with bricks, which absorb and retain solar heat to provide the raised temperatures needed to allow peaches, nectarines and grapes to thrive in our colder climate.
The show-piece of a walled garden is often a single greenhouse, or if it is a larger plot, multiple greenhouses; that is where our experienced design team at Alitex come in.
