The Victorian Lodge • Washington

Beauty and elegance. With the distinctive and unique Victorian, Heritage and Modern Glasshouse ranges, customers won’t have to go anywhere else to find a beautifully crafted, high-quality Glasshouse.

Structurally superior. Every Hartley Botanic Glasshouse is handcrafted in the North of England to customers’ exact requirements. Made from the finest materials with unparalleled durability, safety, and beauty, each section has a purpose, and the company never takes short cuts by “sticking” aluminum to glass for aesthetic reasons. Hartley Botanic even offers a lifetime guarantee.

The Modern Hartley 10 Planthouse New York

A reputation beyond compare. Hartley Botanic has earned a unique reputation and trust for crafting the finest Glasshouses and Greenhouses money can buy through hard-won experience, craftsmanship, and service.

Unrivaled knowledge and expertise. Hartley Botanic creates Glasshouses of distinction from decades of knowledge and care. A wealth of expertise is built into every Glasshouse.

Exceptional delivery of service. Once your Glasshouse has been handmade to your personal requirements and to Hartley Botanic’s exacting standards, delivery and installation will be exceptional, and the company’s proud team will ensure the process runs smoothly.

The Heritage Vista • Colorado

Hartley Botanic’s Greenhouses and Glasshouses are all made to order, and they range from small patio models to imposing Glasshouses. Designs are available from three product ranges (Victorian, Heritage, and Modern), or customers can create a totally bespoke design, with all models available in a variety of colors and sizes, along with options for “glass to ground” installation, freestanding or lean-to, and internal glazed partitions.
