At SB Greenhouses, our mission is to help as many people as possible discover the joy of home gardening no matter what climate they live in. That’s why we’ve dedicated the past 45 years to building beautiful, high-quality backyard greenhouse kits fit for almost any climate in the country, and why we put immense effort into constructing each of our greenhouses with craftsmanship, care, and quality. Few things are as enjoyable as raising year after year of crops in your own backyard, but many people just don’t have the yard space for a freestanding backyard greenhouse – and that’s where a lean-to greenhouse can really shine.
Our Montecito Lean-To Greenhouses are a perfect solution for someone who wants a space and energy-efficient greenhouse that they can enjoy for years to come. While our freestanding Montecito greenhouses are perfect for someone with a large backyard, our lean-to greenhouse kits can be built against the side of your house, barn, or any other structure on your property, letting you save space while still growing the beautiful crops you’d expect from a Santa Barbara Greenhouse.
With a lean-to greenhouse, you get the benefit of saving space and potentially saving energy. Because the greenhouse is built against the side of your home or barn, you maximize space efficiency and limit the footprint of your greenhouse overall. Imagine turning an unused alleyway beside your house into your own personal oasis of ripe vegetables and beautiful orchids! Additionally, lean-to greenhouses allow you to heat the greenhouse with the ambient heat from your house. While this is never as effective as a purpose-built climate control system, for warmer climates, this can sometimes be enough. Even if you do opt for a climate control system, you’ll save energy because the system will benefit from ambient heat from your house.
We can also construct a lean-to greenhouse against a side door of your home, which means you can walk directly from your house into your greenhouse. Imagine waking up on a cold winter morning, walking downstairs, and stepping into your own personal oasis of vibrant flowers, succulent fruits and vegetables, and a perfect temperature of 77º F – all without needing to walk through the cold outside. With a lean-to greenhouse, it’s fully possible.
Our aluminum lean-to greenhouses come with all the benefits of our regular Montecito aluminum greenhouse kits. You’ll get our exclusive, heavy-duty Insalume frame, which uses of 8mm Twin-Wall polycarbonate siding to ensure maximum climate protection. Plus, because we use a sturdy grade of pre-cut aluminum, your greenhouse will literally last forever – the frame will even outlast the polycarbonate panels on the sides of the greenhouse!
Home gardening is a passion you’ll enjoy for your whole life long, and if you’ve been considering getting a greenhouse for your backyard but want to save on space and energy, our Montecito aluminum lean-to greenhouse kit is perfect for you.
