Garden building supplier Alitex has recently completed a greenhouse for the Lime Wood Hotel and Herb House Spa in Hampshire.
Lime Wood’s brief was for an authentic greenhouse, that in five years’ time would look like it has been there for 50 years.
The hotel chose Alitex due to the flexibility in the people and the longevity of its employees.
The greenhouse itself is bespoke, freestanding and measures 20.2 metres by 5.16 metres.
It is painted in Wood Sage to blend with the natural surroundings at Lime Wood. It also has cold frames, benching and shelving for optimum growing space.
The greenhouse has also been accessorised with shades, a hot water heating system and automatic controlled ventilation that allows them to have full control over the growing conditions.
David Elton, director of Lime Wood, said: “I don’t think you appreciate the detail until you experience it head on, it’s a quality build.”
