5’ 10" (1783mm) View Dimensions
8’ 3" (2523mm) View Dimensions
Both these models are modular in length so that your 3/4 lean to glasshouse can be extended to span the full length of the wall, if you wish. As with all our glasshouses the lean-to range is available glass to ground, with Accoya boarding or to go onto a dwarf wall. You can choose the modern wide pane centres or for period properties you might opt for the Victorian style with narrow pane centres
The Cultivar lean to glasshouse range comes in two standard widths. These are our small 5’10’” (1783mm) option and our 8’3”’ (2523mm) wide option.
You can arrange a bespoke three quarter lean to glasshouse design if you wish, with our modular approach permitting us to span the full width of a wall if requested to ensure maximum flexibility.
Our 3/4 lean to glasshouses are also available in variety of styles ranging from modern design with wide pane centres or period Victorian lean to glasshouse designs which have narrower pane centres.
Cultivar produce a range of three-quarter lean to glasshouses that can be fitted against an existing wall. This, of course, is assuming that the wall is in good order and is plumb and true. A three-quarter lean-to glasshouse has significant advantages over that of a standard lean-to. Firstly the wall to which the glasshouse abuts need not be as high. Secondly and arguably equally important the glasshouse benefits from having a greater cubic air capacity as well as having vents on both sides of the ridge. Additional ventilation can be added at eaves level along the length or at the plain end of the glasshouse to compensate from the lack of ventilation along the wall side.
The Victorian three-quarter lean to range is available in exactly the same sizes but has the more traditional narrow pane centres and is crowned at each end with a hand turned Accoya finial as pictured.
In an ideal world the wall should be south facing and if this is the case you will benefit from full sun most of the day. The wall tends to absorb the heat during the day which is useful in keeping the lean to glasshouse temperature up high into the evening and night.
While the abutting wall can help maintain heat levels in your glasshouse if it joins onto your residence, it also deprives your crops of some of the available sunlight.
This makes it extra important to consider which wall your three quarter lean to glasshouse is going to be abutted to. In an ideal world, the wall should be south facing as this will ensure that you glasshouse benefits from full sun for the majority of the day.
An added benefit of having a south facing lean to glasshouse is that the abutting wall will absorb the heat from the sun throughout the day, which helps to maintain heat levels heading into evening and night.
If you would prefer to have a relatively big glasshouse with additional width, then perhaps one of our abutting glasshouses would be a better option for you.
The width of this model is approximately 10’7” (3330mm). This is available as glass to ground or with an Accoya boarded base. In situations where the space available is sufficient, then you may consider adding cold frames to the width.
