Our modern take on traditional wooden greenhouses has been influenced by changes to the types of wood and their availability. For instance, greenhouses made of softwoods such as pine and cedar have limited life span, say 10 - 25 years and replacement may be necessary in time.
Hardwoods, such as teak or mahogany, although long-lasting have been exploited in the rainforests and are now rare so definitely ecologically unfriendly. So we have selected Accoya for our framework and boarding. This beautiful timber is from fast-growing sustainable certified wood species. It is treated with a naturally occurring non-toxic product that produces enhanced durability (50 years or more), improves hardness and unbeatable dimensional stability, perfect for traditional craft woodworking.
