POWDER COATED ALUMINIUM: The powder coated finish is more attractive than the stark silver finish aluminium greenhouses. The tough finish also has excellent weathering properties and retains its gloss and colour superbly. A good example of powder coating is the finish on your washing machine. Powder coated aluminium greenhouses have a similar finish.
BASE PLINTH: The base plinth makes installation much easier. It is designed to be a portable and prefabricated foundation beam. The plinth features a flat underside to spread the weight of the greenhouse over a larger area. The base plinth can be placed on any flat and level surface including soil, gravel, decking, concrete or paving slabs. It is best to prepare a perimeter footing of concrete or paving slabs for the base plinth to stand on. However, with care the base plinth can be placed on any surface including soil or gravel provided that the ground is flat and level.
TOUGHENED GLASS: Toughened glass is the best glazing material for use in greenhouses. It is around 6 times stronger than normal glass so it is less likely to break and when it does break toughened glass breaks into harmless small pieces. This makes toughened glass the best option for all the family including children, pets and the elderly. Toughened glass also strengthens the frame and it is heavy which helps to resist wind. Although size limits apply, toughened glass panes are longer than horticultural glass, with no overlapping glass and fewer joins. Where required, joins are neat in-line H-profile joins. Greenhouse glass is subject to lower visual standards than other more expensive glass and may include blemishes or imperfections which do not adversely affect the performance.
GREENHOUSE LOCATION: Ideally your greenhouse should have a clear space at least 18" wide on all sides, if possible. This ensures easy access for both installation and future maintenance. In reality this is often not practical and at many sites it is not needed. A reduced clearance is often possible on one or two sides. You should cut back or remove any nearby shrubs and trees. Remember to allow for future growth. Ideally the ridge of a greenhouse should run from east to west. The best position for a freestanding greenhouse is a sunny spot outside the shadow of nearby buildings and trees. A sheltered position is best otherwise additional screening may be advisable. Plants need plenty of water so your greenhouse should be close to a water supply and the site should be well drained.
SIZES - LENGTH AND WIDTH: The external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the length. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear including the door wall. The length refers to the side walls.

GREENHOUSE ACCESSORIES - ALWAYS IN STOCK: As a specialist greenhouse supplier, established since 1981, we pride ourselves on supplying more options and accessories than other suppliers. All of our greenhouse accessories are always in stock all the time. Many accesories are only available when you buy the greenhouse and not available separately. However, we always make an exception for one of our customers - if you purchased your greenhouse from us we will always supply any accessory you need at any time, even many years afterwards.
BASE ANCHOR FIXING KITS - FOR SOIL OR CONCRETE: This kit makes it easy to fix your greenhouse down securely into concrete, paving slabs, decking or even soil. The brackets are profiled to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth with fixing holes on the inside. The brackets are fixed from inside the greenhouse with coach screws fixed down into the concrete, paving slabs or decking. If you want to site your greenhouse on soil you will need a concrete trench around the perimeter or smaller pockets of concrete into which the brackets can be fixed. You can fix the base plinth down with screws and wall plugs but it is much easier with our profiled brackets. Fixing the greenhouse down is recommended at all sites. The kit includes:
- Profiled anchor brackets - shaped to grip the inside of the greenhouse base plinth, with predrilled fixing holes
- Masonry drill bit - used to drill the correct size hole in concrete or paving slabs
- Zinc plated coachscrews - supplied complete with washers and plugs to ensure a neat easy fit
HEATERS: We offer a huge range of heaters so whatever your specific requirements we have a heater to do the job. Our electric heaters require a standard domestic 13 amp electricity supply. Our propane gas heaters require permanent trickle ventilation when in use. As an approximate guide, a 3kw heater will heat a greenhouse up to 8'x12' or provide frost protection only up to 10'x15' in normal site conditions. A 1.5kw heater will normally heat a greenhouse up to 6'x8' or provide frost protection only up to 6'x12'. Internal partitions are often used in large greenhouses to create a smaller warm room which is cheaper and easier to heat.
HEATING REQUIREMENTS: Heating requirements vary for several reasons. Location is one factor with more heating required in Scotland than in southern England and less heating required in a sheltered position. The design is also a factor. For example, dwarf walls improve the insulation and lean to greenhouses absorb warmth from the existing wall. Another factor is the materials used. Polycarbonate greenhouses retain heat better than glass and wooden greenhouses retain heat better than metal greenhouses. We recommend you to buy a bigger heater than you need - you can always turn it down.
RECYCLED PLASTIC BASE KITS: Our durable eco-grid and eco-paving base kits are a practical and affordable alternative to slabs or concrete. Lightweight and easy to install within a few minutes, these 100% recycled polypropylene pavers simply click together with no fixings needed. The interlocking design ensures greater rigidity. Designed to spread weight, our plastic bases are self draining and fully relocatable, unlike paving or concrete. A fully paved base has no soil inside the greenhouse. Alternatively, a perimeter base features a single row of pavers laid around the perimeter of the greenhouse with soil inside. You can also add a footpath in the centre of a perimeter base. The base is normally at least 2" or 50mm larger than your building. Where space permits the base is normally laid full size but if required in a tight location our plastic pavers can be cut. Fast delivery within 3-5 days ensures that you can start work quickly.
ECO-GRID BASE KITS: Eco-grids are recommended if the sub-base is soil, sand or pea shingle but not on hard surfaces such as concrete, because the underside is not flat. Integral pegs on the underside help to level the base grids more easily in soil or sand or shingle. Our eco-grid plastic bases can support up to 200 tonnes per square metre. We supply exactly the same eco-grids for use in driveways and carparks. Each eco-grid is 472mm x 472mm and 40mm thick with an immensely strong 60x60mm hexagonal cell structure. The kits include weed control membrane which is laid below the pavers. Extensive preparation is not normally required. First the ground is levelled and then the membrane is laid directly on the soil. The pavers are laid on the membrane or on a thin layer of sand or pea shingle. The pavers should be backfilled with gravel or pea shingle which is not supplied. Approximately 15-20kg of shingle is required per paver. We recommend checking this with your supplier or, if you can, buy less gravel than you need to start with.
ECO-PAVING KITS - BASES, FLOORS AND FOOTPATHS: This durable floor kit is a practical and affordable alternative to slabs or concrete. Easy to install within a few minutes, these recycled polypropylene pavers simply click together with no fixings needed. The pavers are easily prised apart so the floor is even quicker to remove if required. Eco-paving is recommended if the sub-base is a hard surface such as concrete or paving slabs, because the pavers feature a flat and level underside. Our eco-paving is less brittle than concrete paving slabs, with a strong supporting structure. The surface looks and feels similar to pressed concrete slabs, with a slightly textured finish. Each eco-paver is 385mm x 385mm and 40mm thick. The pavers are quickly and easily laid over an existing hard surface. Laying eco-paving directly on soil is not recommended. Eco-pavers can be laid on a layer of gravel or pea shingle if it is carefully compacted and levelled. The kits include weed control membrane which can be laid below the pavers. Each paver should be fully supported. Eco-pavers can be used to build a perimeter base but care is required to provide a solid sub-base. Ideally the sub-base should be concrete or a similar hard surface.
The Eco-paving internal floor sometimes fits comfortably inside the greenhouse with a few inches to spare. Sometimes it is overlength but it can be cut to fit. The finished floor is self draining and suitable for wheelbarrows and wheelchairs. Laying eco-paving directly on soil is not recommended. Eco-pavers can be laid on a layer of gravel or pea shingle if it is carefully compacted and levelled. Each paver should be fully supported.
A durable Eco-paving footpath is inexpensive and easy to install inside any greenhouse. The footpath is normally laid inside the greenhouse after the assembly is completed. The kit sometimes fits comfortably inside the greenhouse with a few inches to spare. Sometimes it is overlength but it can be cut to fit. Designed to spread weight, the finished floor or footpath is self draining and suitable for wheelbarrows. Laying eco-paving directly on soil is not recommended. Eco-pavers can be laid on a layer of gravel or pea shingle if it is carefully compacted and levelled. Each paver should be fully supported.
WPC COMPOSITE DECKING KITS: This superb quality WPC wood plastic composite decking closely resembles real wood, with the same look and feel. However, it is virtually maintenance free and it will never rot. At a glance it is difficult to tell the difference between this composite material and real timber decking with a stained finish. Furthermore, the similarities are not skin deep like a thin veneer. The realistic finish has a fibrous surface which looks similar to the grain of real wood. This synthetic composite is also heavier and stronger than real wood. The strength, durability and lack of maintenance make this superb decking a popular choice with pensioners and discerning commercial buyers such as care homes. Occasional cleaning with soapy water normally restores the original appearance. If any dirt or stains become ingrained after prolonged neglect even the most stubborn marks can be cleaned with a pressure washer.
Our WPC composite decking is a revolutionary material which provides all the benefits of real wood without the maintenance. It can be left outside uncovered all year round. Unlike real wood this synthetic wood is a weatherproof material with no knots, splinters, machining marks or other imperfections. It will never develop splits or shakes and no sap will ever ooze out of it. Our wood plastic composite is an equal mixture of real wood and recycled plastic. Even the wood is a mixture of sawdust and unusable offcuts, so it is the ultimate environmentally friendly alternative to wood. The colour pigments are mixed in before the powdered composite is moulded into shape, so the colour runs all the way through the finished product. The boards are completely impervious to water. The boards can be sawn, drilled and screwed, just like real wood. You can fix it with standard woodscrews. Being heavier and denser than real wood, screw fixings are actually stronger in composite boards.

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.
Richard, Enfield, EN2, 6x6 Greenhouse 005, 11th 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
EXTRA NOTE:- LOUVRE VENTS CAN BE FITTED RETROSPECTIVELY. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING POWER TOOLS TO TIGHTEN GREENHOUSE BOLTS.
just to say thanks for a safe delivery on Monday 17th July, and also could you pass on our thanks to (INSTALLER 156) for the good work in erecting the greenhouse. Good job done! very pleased with your service. Once again thank you!

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.

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.
Mike, Newton St Faith, Norwich, NR10, 6x8 Greenhouse 005, 11th April 2017

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.
Many thanks for emailing the instructions so quickly. We have printed them out now and my husband can make a start.
It really is a pleasure doing business with Summer Garden Buildings as you are so easy to contact and also so helpful.
Janet, Cliffe, Selby, YO8, 6x8 Greenhouse 005, 21st January 2017
Just to let you know � everything arrived exactly on time as requested, no damage to anything. Also the fitter came out when required and was brill, worked hard and did an excellent job. Green house look great. All in all you have one very satisfied customer. Thank you all very much.

Dear Summer Garden Buildings
Thank you so much for the efficient and helpful service from you fir the ordering and delivering of my new greenhouse. Everything was very smoothly dealt with from my initial query, ordering and delivery.
The greenhouse is now erected in my garden and already full of seedlings and plug plants. I thought you might be interested to know that I made very good use of the sturdy wooden packaging which the glass arrived in. With the addition of a few nails , use of a saw and hammer it has been converted into three useful planting trays for my potted up plug plants. I am sure you could use that on your advertising website. "How to easily upcycle a pallet"

Just a polite mail to say that your greenhouse has now been installed by the installer to our complete satisfaction. Your professionalism in delivery and safety protocol was exemplary.
We now require to receive the insulation clips that are outstanding as soon as possible.
Many thanks for your splendid service.

Thank you so much. I am very impressed with the greenhouse, the service and the price of the completed item.
Julie, Aylesford, Kent, ME20, 6x8 Greenhouse 005, 22nd October 2014
My 8x6 greenhouse was delivered as arranged last Friday and erection of the base and frame has been trouble-free thanks largely to the excellent instructions provided. However, no instructions for glazing were included. This did not worry me unduly as I downloaded and printed from your website. From the glazing instructions it's apparent that the PVC H-profiles were missing from my kit. Can you please rectify this as soon as possible, and also include a printed copy of the glazing instructions to ensure I have the latest version? Thank you.
