It is priced at £82, this is 2158% less than this and has an Expert Score of 72, 7 points less than the 8′ x 4′ Halls Cotswold Broadway 84 Green Lean-To Greenhouse.

We found at least 2 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Marlborough Greenhouses 4′ x 8′ Wooden Greenhouse with 4 windows

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 greenhouses that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.
