Key Benefits of the Free-standing Greenhouse

More flexibility with positioning and orientation in the garden

Ventilation on both sides of the glasshouse to help maximise airflow especially on larger designs and alpine houses.

Can be more cost-effective than a lean-to structure of the same size

Always has a ridge that can be decorated with cresting for a more Victorian greenhouse look, or left plain for a clean finish

Full-length roof ventilation together with side ventilation for maximum airflow

Designed as an equal span but a ¾ span design can also be achieved if preferred

If you’re considering a small greenhouse, the minimum width for a freestanding greenhouse is 2m (6.5 feet). For larger bespoke greenhouses, a single span may be over 6m (20 feet) wide.


Griffin’s glasshouses offer these gardener-friendly features:

  • The beauty of wood without the maintenance headaches.
  • Maximum ventilation so your plants don’t dry out or suffer the effects of humidity.
  • Large covered water storage tanks for storing clean, soft rainwater inside your greenhouse. This means you can water your plants without shocking the roots at the height of summer.
  • Flexible shelving and benching to accommodate changes to your growing schemes.
  • Cold frames with lids that don’t lift off in high winds.
  • Well-sized doors allowing easy access with a wheelbarrow.


Every glasshouse is unique and so are your needs as a gardener. We can help you create the perfect environment for your plants and accessorise your glasshouse in style. Whatever your chosen style and planting plans, we can manufacture or source a full range of accessories on your behalf. We can also put you in touch with other recommended suppliers. Accessories can include:

  • Benching & shelving
  • Internal water storage solutions
  • Cold frames
  • Lighting

We’ll ensure your glasshouse is fully equipped with everything you need. Plus. we’ll gladly share our advice and experience to help you choose (and spend) wisely.
