Single Top Bar
Having just one central bar atop this polytunnel protects it from collapse due to water build-up.In other polytunnels, having two bars running then length of the polytunnel means that rainwater can pool between them, putting a lot of weight on the structure of the polytunnel, this can potentially lead to the collapse of a polytunnel.
Sloped Sides for Wind Protection
Polytunnels with vertical walls are much more prone to wind damage. By having sloped sides, the shape of this polytunnel is designed to deflect the wind upwards, diverting some of the strength of the wind away from the side of the polytunnel.
Mesh Ventilation System
Mesh ventilation windows in every bay ensure that your polytunnel is well ventilated to promote healthy plant growth. Each window has its own cover which can be unrolled and attached securely into place using Velcro to allow full control over the ventilation system. The fine mesh design also lets in additional light, helping your plants to grow to their full potential, while preventing insects from entering your polytunnel.
Rust Resistant Galvanised Steel
With a sturdy galvanised steel frame, this polytunnel combines the strength of the steel frame with rust and corrosion resistance for extra longevity. Galvanised steel has a layer of zinc added to the steel, this layer is incredibly corrosion and rust resistant, giving the frame of this polytunnel some protection from the effects of rust and corrosion. This durable and robust frame is simple to put together, and featuring a single top bar, is better protected against water build-up.
Please note: This polytunnel comes unassembled and will need to be put together on site.
Reinforced Polyethylene Sheeting
The polyethylene sheeting used to cover the frame of this polytunnel is made of high quality reinforced polyethylene, ensuring that enough of the suns light is blocked to avoid scorched plants in hot weather, but that the structure traps heat in during colder weather, extending the growing season. This polyethylene has been reinforced to give your polytunnel extra strength.
Do I need an Anchor Kit?
An invaluable addition to any polytunnel, this stake kit is designed to help anchor your tunnel safely and securely to the ground. Simply build the frame for your polytunnel then drive one of the pointed stakes into the ground on the inside of each corner. Feed the cable ties through the pre-drilled holes and around the frame to secure the whole structure.
Do I need to purchase Staging?

Do I need Raised Garden Beds?
Raised beds are ideal for Polytunnels and is a wonderful way to grow your own delicious fruit, vegetable and herbs. Using raised beds mean you start growing your vegetation closer together and in the best possible medium. It features easy access and requires less bending and reaching, giving you a clever garden solution. Lacewing raised beds have a smooth a finish and the attactive woodwork will look great anywhere.
If the area around the bed has a weed membrane laid down with bark or gravel on top, it will form a barrier to stop slugs and snails from getting into the bed, and since the soil will have no eggs in it, you will be starting a strong pest controlled environment straight away. Any slug pellets needed can be spread around the outside of the bed, and kept away from any growing plants. Grow beds are ideal for new plant life thanks to their faster warming soil and box design, perfect for nets and other aids.
Do I need an Irrigation System for my polytunnel?
To ensure your vegetation grows healthily, it is essential to provide the correct amount of water and at regular intervals. An Irrigation system is a perfect solution for dealing with such tasks and can help create an ideal condition to improve the growth of your vegetation. Its automatic watering feature ensures greater efficiency whilst requiring little effort, making it an ideal companion for polytunnels.
Benefits of a Water Irrigation System Automatically waters your plant, taking away the chore of having to do so from you Ideal for when you are away and unable to provide your vegetation with water Helps conserve water and reduces waste Improves growth
