Dear Sirs,

Just a short note to say the Greenhouse was received today in two undamaged boxes and a package containing the Anchor Kit. I have opened the boxes and everything looks fine, but being cold outside, I will do the contents check tomorrow.

Thank you very much.


Good morning

Firstly I would like to say that I am really pleased with the greenhouse and its quality. Now that it is assembled I can confirm that it is really solid and well produced. However I lost a few nuts and bolts during the build and wonder if you could please send me 10 of each please. I built the greenhouse leaving these to be added in place that would not require disassembly.

Many thanks

Colin, Walton Park, Milton Keynes, MK7, 6x8 Greenhouse 017, 27th November 2017


Could you please arrange to send me the Diamond Finial that was missing from the above order. Apart from that I was very pleased with the construction and look of my purchase

Andy, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12, 7x7 Corner Summerhouse 174, 27th November 2017


Dear Sir , Madam

I bought the Gazebo 210 below in mid -Summer and it is now finished and it looks great-I customised it with some on-line made to measure tinted Perspex windows and then added a set of louvre doors –can I please ask is it possible to buy just one more of curved decorative board fascia (painted white) on its own –see the pictures attached -it looks a bit odd with only the 2 that came with the kit and a third would just finish the right hand side of the gazebo

Other than that single piece of wood to balance the effect they are great value products and well made and go together easily and I would not hesitate to recommend yout products

Kind Regards

Gillian, Carnforth, Lancashire, LA5, 7x6 Wooden Gazebo 210, 11th November 2017

Thank you so much for the most efficient service I received when I ordered a potting bench from you on Sunday afternoon. I received useful and informative emails and a courtesy call confirming delivery details. The delivery date was today, Tuesday 31st between 9 and 5 o'clock. At 8.23 the bench arrived and it was assembled by 9 o'clock. I am extremely pleased with the bench and even more so with the enjoyable shopping experience. Thank you very much from one happy customer.

Robin, Bungay, Suffolk, NR35, 6x8 Greenhouse 017, 29th October 2017

FAO Toby , Guy
On Wednesday 20 th September 2017 I had an Apex Summerhouse 180 installed and this was 2-3 weeks before the scheduled date
From first ordering my summerhouse to installing I am highly delighted with the service I have received from the very polite and professional people I have spoken to .
Originally I did not ask for any of the windows to open but soon discovered this was a mistake on my part . After a telephone call to Toby this was sorted for me and within two weeks of my request Matt was here to fix two new windows into my summerhouse that open .
The quality of my summerhouse is brilliant and I have had electricity installed so it can now be my " All Year Round " house .
I cannot praise you and your staff highly enough and would totally recommend them to everyone .

PS I would very much like to put the above letter onto your websites under Reviews but somehow I cannot achieve this myself on my I pad . If you are able to do this for me I would appreciate it very much
Thank you

Yvonne, Wymondham, Norfolk, NR18, 8x6 Summerhouse 180, 27th October 2017


I would just like to say a huge thank you to your driver. Would you pass this message onto him please?

Only, I totally forgot that we were getting a delivery from you yesterday and I forgot to leave the small storage shed that he was going to collect in the driveway – but he phoned me and I told him where it was and he very kindly picked it up from the large shed in our garden and left the one that he was delivering in our garden.

What a service!!! I can't imagine many drivers doing that (and as a business we work with many).

To be honest it has been a total pleasure doing business with your company from start to finish. I will definitely be recommending you to those who are looking to buy a shed in the future.

Many, many thanks,

Thank you for contacting us.

The delivery vehicle should not be too large but they are used to parking on the road anyway. You will shortly receive the installer's contact details so please feel free to contact him direct to discuss the base or any other queries you may have with him.

Hello, thank you for confirming the below order.

I have two questions re Installation:

There is a very narrow driveway to our property. A transit van can fit but anything bigger will need to park road-side. Is that ok?

The greenhouse is going on a gravelled area. I would like to talk to the installer as soon as possible about any preparatory work that needs to take place before the greenhouse is installed. Please can you advise on what the process is re the installer that I chose when making the order?

Many thanks,

Good morning
Thank you for the prompt attention to my problem with the staging brace. Correct piece now received. Perfect fit and staging now complete.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are happy to hear that you are pleased with your purchase.

The best place to fit the louvre vent is in the centre of the rear wall at the bottom. To do this you need to remove panel 8 and cut it down with a sharp craft knife to fit the gap above the louvre blades after you have installed the louvre kit.

The dimensions of the louvre are in the separate instructions supplied with it. These also advise on the relatively simple task of fitting the blades in the louvre mechanisms and fitting those to the greenhouse frame. I have attached a copy of these to assist.

Best Regards

Andrew, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE27, 7x6 Wooden Gazebo 210, 4th September 2017


I have nothing but praise for this company, from my initial phone call to the erecting of my new summerhouse they could not have been more helpful.

I had called numerous different company but decided on this one because they offered the building/painting and erecting of the summerhouse which saved a lot of valuable time.

I spoke to a gentleman called Guy who explained the different types of summerhouses to me. After discussing it with my husband I decided to go with the Apex Summerhouse 423.

I contacted Guy again and he then talked me through the ordering process explaining what I would need and not need. I was very impressed that he didn't try to sell me everything going, but was very patient and helpful and didn't make me feel rushed to get the order in.

He then gave me a guide of five to seven weeks for the delivery, but said they would be in contact a couple of weeks before the actual delivery date to give me a definite date which is exactly what they did.

On the day of delivery two very polite young men turned up with my summerhouse, checked the area it was to be situated in and then began to erect my new summerhouse in a very professional and tidy manner. Once up and checked they then touched up small areas of my painted house that had been caught in transit.

I cannot praise this company enough for the excellent service I received and I would highly recommend them.

Suzanne, Willey, Warwickshire, CV23, 10x10 Summerhouse 423, 3rd September 2017


You may be interested that your delivery of our bin shed arrived safely. My daughter and I built it yesterday, without too much trouble. It looks very good and does the job well in hiding the three bins. We did make a few mistakes and did not find your instructions completely helpful. One sheet was supplied twice, possibly in place of one that was missing, but the final job looks good and if it had not rained last night, would today be getting varnished.


Michael, Lichfield, WS14, Wheelie Bin Store 151, 29th August 2017

Just to let you all at Summer garden know , the replacement sections have now arrived. Once again thank you all very much for all your help. I would certainly recommend your company in the future.

Iain, Norwich, NR7, 11x10 Log Cabin 016, 17th August 2017


Thought I should send my thanks for supplying a really good quality product. I have only just got around to building the metal shed after having it in storage for the past two months.

The unit went together really well. The majority of issues were attributed to misunderstanding the instructions or fitting more screws that actually asked for, only to have to remove them later to fit another part.

So, if I was to criticise and I feel since I've spent the last two days building....

Instructions would benefit from enlarged diagrams, some text describing what is really important and identification of what new parts are required for each stage (I spent some time wondering which idents were new and which related to existing, already assembled parts).
I suggest the total time should be stated as 8-10 hours for two people. If this is the first time you have done this, there is no way 5 hours is anywhere near correct since much time is spent attempting to understand the instructions.
Wearing gloves is fine and the sharp edges have cut me several times, but I afraid you cannot pick up the small bolts and nuts with anything except bare fingers.
I deliberately left everything finger tight until the roof was on. Then propped the centre span with a piece of wood slightly higher than I required until all the fixings were tight. Good advice for self assemblers, only one pair of hands is required for this stage.
I also spent some time rebuilding parts I had built in mirror image. I realise this is my lack of understanding, but also the instructions could be more clear.

Overall though, it is excellent. A great product. I have recommended this to a colleague of mine. Let's see if he pursues a purchase with yourselves.

Thanks once again, I have a shed...and no repaintingmyear after year.

Colin, Crewe, Cheshire, CW2, 11x14 Metal Shed 378, 16th August 2017

Dear Summer Garden Buildings,

Thank you getting the correct part to me earlier this week. I now have a fine greenhouse erected which i shall spend many an hour enjoying.

Lynne and Frank, Biggin Hill, Kent, ME16, 8x8 Wooden Gazebo 220, 7th August 2017

On May 10th I ordered and paid for a summerhouse with various options which included internal and external solar lights which were to be delivered separately. The summerhouse was delivered and installed on July 3rd but in spite of a telephone communication I have still not received the lights so I would like to receive either delivery of the lights within the next seven days or a refund of the £34. The summerhouse is splendid have no complaints about that.

Vairyna, Ludlow, SY8, 7x5 Summerhouse 421, 5th August 2017


feedback on aluminium green 005 6x6
delivered as promised
exceptional packaging and protection, took me 1.5hrs just to unpack.
went together very well, with only 1 person (me)
some negative comments,
bolt material so soft as to start stripping the thread at little more than hand tight. somewhere on your website it mentions a powered socket to save elbow grease!! a definite no no.
Glazing panels (toughened glass), glass or packaging not marked with code identifiers R1, R2, etc, easy to figure out after the first wrong offering.
assembly instructions make even the experienced DIYer stop and think in places, ie A1 step 1, "flat side of bottom bar faces inwards" (Flat side to me means horizontal)
profile end caps and gutter end caps are flimsy and tend to fall off.
base frame is flimsy and could do with being more rigid, especially in the door area, with maybe a simple diagonal to assure square.
second thoughts means I want to install a lower louvre vent, but on the website it states "replaces a normal size pane of glass", ??? the only locations suitable are in excess of 1000mm, except for the door lower, which you can not fit a louvre vent to.
all in all a great product, with some annoying niggles

Andy, Southampton, SO18, 6x6 Greenhouse 005, 5th August 2017


We received our summerhouse a few weeks ago and thought we would give some feedback.

We are basically very pleased with it and are enclosing a photo. The instructions were clear and it looks lovely.

Just a couple of problems. One if the rear panels seemed completely wrong. We definitely had it the right way up but nothing seemed to match up with the adjoining one. The slats also extended over the edge of the baton meaning that we couldn't butt it up next to the panel. We had to saw off the overhanging bits of wood which was not easy. Anyway it eventually fitted in and screwed together so got over that problem.

The other thing we should mention is the glazing. After breaking several pieces of glass trying to knock the tiny nails into the beading between the glass and the wood, we were getting quite annoyed. It also looked bad as the nails were splitting the wood. Then we had a brainwave. We stuck all the beading on with no more nails.....and got a wonderful neat finish with no more broken panes. Maybe this would be a better way of fitting the beading.

Anyway....we are very pleased and it is a superb product for the cost. It looks good and is a really lovely addition to the garden.

Mr T, Sedgebrook, Grantham, NG32, 8x6 Summerhouse 25, 30th May 2017

When I spoke to you today to order an automatic vent opener for the greenhouse that you supplied, you asked me concerning the fitter of the greenhouse. I was extremely pleased with (INSTALLER 196). He arrived on time. He knew exactly what he was doing. There was never any untidiness and generally he was a pleasure to have on site. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone requiring the installation of a greenhouse. Currently, he works only at the weekend for this type of installation working the rest of the week all over the country on specialist garage roof repairs.

Thank you for recommending him as the installer.

Peter, Wellington, Somerset, TA21, 8x10 Greenhouse 090, 23rd May 2017

Thank you for your help re Greenhouse 014 - I now have a very happy wife but see much less of her!

Thank you for supplying a spare door handle - I'm rather embarrassed as it had fallen out of the packaging so you supplied all parts correctly.

Re the additional pack I ordered. The louvre unit was not installed as the kit didn't include a metal bar (similar to the opening window) which I fell was not strong enough without, nor were the anchor bolts used as you supply as standard long angle plates to bury in the ground. Can I return these items to you in exchange for a second automatic window opener please?

Some notes on the unit as promised.

The frame is very well designed and when assembled, a strong structure. I particularly liked the triangular corner supports & roof stays. The assembly instructions were on the whole very comprehensive although at times difficult to follow.


The Base Plinth gave a lot of problems because it showed the bottom frames of the greenhouse assembled to it when it was a simple case of bolting the angled corners together. It would have also been useful to mention digging the 4 holes for the angled anchor.

The side & rear wall assemble went quickly when I laid the items out on the lawn in their position. Diagram 3 shows the door runner but doesn't identify its upright support & fixing - found by elimination. The aluminium nuts & bolts a very good idea but a few extra would have been helpful as some members had to be refitted a number of times due to yours truly!!!


My version was the 6mm which was hard to install particularly over the bolt heads of the triangular strengtheners -wished I'd gone for the 4mm version. Possibly bolts with thinner heads would have helped.
the box shaped capping pieces had to be cut where the angled supports joined the frame and at the end to fit over the bolt heads with a fine hacksaw. Instructions for this would have saved time.

Finished unit though was well worth the effort.

Hope these notes be useful for your rewrite.

Kind regards

Ken, Chinnor, Oxfordshire, OX39, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 22nd May 2017

Aiden, Ruislip, Middlesex, HA4, 9x8 Metal Shed 374, 6th May 2017

Hi sgb thankyou for your email. I have placed an order as you can see for 3 sheets but I must stress that I do require 6MM THICK TWIN WALL it must be 6MM to match the rest of the glazing in my greenhouse as it came with 6MM specially ordered when you sent it . So just to reiterate if I may please send me only 6MM.
Thankyou once again and it is a pleasure to do business with you. I would like to say that my greenhouse is up and running fully with heater cooling fan thermostats etc and the build quality is awesome very sturdy with the Base concreted in . Very pleased and if I need any accessories or a larger one i will shop with you again in the future .

Hi, having received cabin, which we are pleased with.the only problem was today when our joiner was fitting the extra window we found that the handle was missing. I wonder if you could rectify this for me please. Regards hazel

Good afternoon, my order has arrived as planned, no damage and delivered right up to my gate. I'm particularly impressed by the glass protection!

Thank you Shane for a very well executed order completion 😊

Have great Easter!

Just a quick message to thank you for a great service. Delivery on Wed 5th April was completed as arranged, no problems and done by two very helpful guys. Did not have time to check all the glass but packs seemed intact so will take a chance on that. Everything was excellent, will pass on your details to my friends and colleagues who may need something in future.
Many thanks

Hi there, my partner and I bought a 6x10 Aluminium 017 greenhouse a couple of weeks ago and we just wanted to let you know how delighted we are with it and your customer service.

It was delivered very quickly and was packaged very well.

Within the boxes many sections were packaged separately and it was all labelled clearly, making identification of parts very easy.

The instructions were clear (although some of the diagrams could have been a bit bigger to be clearer). The construction was a relative breeze, especially considering I am a novice and have not built a greenhouse before.

I did have need to call and clarify a couple of things, one regarding the base plinth supports, as I was mounting onto a hard surface and one was fitting the roof vents (I had missed the arrow on the plans, indicating that they were slid into place). On both occasions I spoke to a very helpful chap, who answered the queries and couldn't have been nicer.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone thinking of buying. We are delighted with the quality of the product and cannot wait to fill it up!

Kind Regards and Many Thanks

Hi. Just to say that I have now constructed the new greenhouse (017) which replaced the one I bought from you 10 years ago. I must say the improvements to the structure are immense (so much stronger). I found the instructions a bit difficult to follow as the photocopy was very faded, but got there in the end! Other that that really chuffed with it. 10 out of 10 for good, helpful service and quick delivery.

Well done. Thank you.

Kind regards

Dear gentlemen,

Thank you for sending a replacement runner wheel for my greenhouse. I was able to get out this afternoon to see about it and it is now running properly again.

I am most grateful to you for your help.

Having ordered a 6x6 greenhouse from yoursleves late last year, I have eventually got round to constructing it.
I have to say, what an absolutely fabulous product - it was everything I'd expected and more.
Well built, good instructions, and not a single pieceof damage.
Even your chosen delivery courier was first class.
If you ever need a testimpony regarding your company or this product then please do not hesitate to ask.

I do have one favour to ask, however. :-)
During construction I mislaid one of the small black plastic gutter ends, and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sending me a replacement? I'm happy to pay if necessary.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,


Like to thank you for a prompt delivery and helpful driver
