Join the growing number of people who are enjoying the benefits and satisfaction from choosing to grow their own.  We are sure you will find that the Elite Kensington 4 Greenhouse range is the ideal choice to fulfil this enjoyable pastime.

The Kensington Lean To Greenhouse range captures many of the features found on the freestanding greenhouses but its style means that you can utilise unused wall space thus reducing the need to impact on your main garden area.  The choice of door location means that you are not restricted to a specific area in your garden.  You can make access even more convenient by opting for an extra single door or making the standard single door in to a double door (the optional double door is available on the 8' length and above). Elite Greenhouses provide a superb and practical environment to involve the family in spending time together, learning, growing and enjoying healthy and nutritional home produced food. Elite's motto is 'Made by our Family for your Family'.

This greenhouse is packed with many features such as a built-in gutter which adds extra strength and help to aid drainage. The single sliding door takes the gentlest of touches to open and close and includes a durable door catch. The large roof vent 4 ft square (0.372 sq m) provides airiness. Roof vent and Side Louvre Vent are supplied as standard, the number of each style of vent supplied as standard depends on the length of the greenhouse please refer to the specification table below. To get you started there is also a 6' wide Extruded Shelf as standard. Elite Greenhouses also offer an amazing number of optional accessories.  Information on the comprehensive range of accessories and standard features on the Elite Kensington 4 Greenhouse can be found in the specification table and gallery on this page.

When choosing the length of greenhouse we would always recommend that you go for the largest greenhouse possible as you may want to extend the variety of items you wish to grow. Elite buildings are modular and increase in increments of 2' therefore there are unlimited lengths which allows you to tailor your greenhouse to your own requirements. 

If you wish to replace the standard horticultural glass with perspex glazing, or add a partition with double doors and/or require a greenhouse length which is not shown you can contact our Sales Team Sales Team through our 'Contact Us' Section for a free quote.

Assembly - Product comes flat packed for self assembly.

Construction - All Elite Greenhouses comes with it own set of comprehensive instructions. For most sized greenhouses, depending upon ability, speed and helpers available a building can be completed within a weekend. The majority of greenhouses are constructed on to a solid foundation surface, however if your greenhouse is being constructed on to soil or grass you will need to order a 'Soft Soil Plinth.
