Using the core elements found in the Elite Compact Greenhouse the Streamline Greenhouse boasts additional working area for the grower with bigger ideas yet still ideally suited for smaller gardens or country courtyards. This greenhouse is available in unlimited lengths starting from 4'5'.  The Elite Streamline Greenhouse is specifically designed to provide you with maximum growing space - you can fit a big hobby in a small space! The Elite 5'3' Wide greenhouse provides an opportunity for some of the good life.  It provides 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 found on larger models.  Built-in gutters add extra strength and help to aid drainage. The double sliding doors take the gentlest of touches to open and close and includes a durable door catch. Also the Elite Streamline comes with an integral base with double drop doors which gives this greenhouse ground level access and thus allows ease of access for wheelbarrows and wheelchairs.  The large roof vent 4 ft square (0.372 sq m) provides airiness. Roof vent(s) are supplied as standard, the number of roof vent(s) supplied as standard depends on the length of the greenhouse please refer to the specification table below.  Elite Greenhouses also offer an amazing number of optional accessories. 

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. Please contact our Sales Team through our 'Contact Us' Section for a price.
