The Elite Compact greenhouse includes an integral aluminium base as part of the design. Aluminium is maintenance free, rustproof and immune to the warping and rotting that comes with wooden greenhouses. This not only provides an incredibly strong foundation but also allows your greenhouse to be erected simply onto firm, level soil – so there’s no need for an expensive concrete base. Once erected, ground anchors are concreted into position. The Elite Compact can also be erected onto a hardstanding of concrete or paving slabs, in which case the flat bottom lip is drilled and screwed down with the appropriate fixings. The Elite Compact includes a low threshold door, which removes the base from the doorway, leaving just a low guide for the door.
