Halls Greenhouses have existed since 1936, and to this very day provide quality garden greenhouses that are both strong and good looking, without costing a fortune. We in the UK have always been keen gardeners and with our unpredictable weather a garden greenhouse is a must, a long lasting Halls greenhouse will extend your season and enable you to grow so much more than would otherwise be possible.
A greenhouse installers view and tips... Adrian's opinion
When choosing your greenhouse you need to think carefully about a few things, where are you thinking of putting it? will you be able to maintain it where it is? does it fit? will it look nice? is the greenhouse big enough? will i be able to get to it when its pouring with rain? and many more little practical things that may influence which Halls greenhouse you pick.
My main considerations would be
Glass? Halls garden greenhouses come as standard with horticultural glass, toughened safety glass is an option, and polycarbonate is available on some models. I like glass greenhouses, they add weight to the building and are clear so look much better, if children or pets are going to be in the area then go for toughened glass, polycarbonate greenhouses are becoming more popular and are the ultimate in safety, with good heat retention properties and virtually unbreakable they do have some advantages over a glass greenhouse, i advise not to put a polycarbonate greenhouse in an exposed area and to anchor down very well.
Model? Halls make a large selection of garden greenhouses, here is my quick guide, with genuine installation times from someone who does this day in and day out.

It is worth noting that i have learnt lots of tricks over the years and have no problems erecting these quality greenhouses on my own, but i strongly recommend that you have a helper available. All Halls garden greenhouses are well thought out and putting your own greenhouse up is easily achieved and very rewarding.
Ventilation and staging
I often get asked why i sell Halls greenhouses, my answer is simply because they are the best value for money "proper" greenhouse available. Yes you can get almost conservatory quality greenhouses, and if you have the funds these are great greenhouses but i sometimes gulp when i see the prices, on the flip side there are slightly cheaper greenhouses available, be aware some of these are truly awful and have been made to a budget, i long ago stopped installing these flimsy things as they just dont do the job, i would like to see these giving you a 15 yr guarantee!
