Adding a conservatory to your home, in the long run, can save you money, increase the value of your property and provide you with a place to relax and enjoy the summer from your own home.

The positive personal impact of gardening cannot be overstated. From the sheer beauty of the plants, to the tranquility and sense of accomplishment growing plants can bring, a conservatory can make a huge contribution to the quality of life enjoyed by its owners.

Some people love the idea of having fresh flowers or lovely plants available but are stymied by the costs or the difficulty of keeping plants alive in a harsh environment.

The conservatory allows these people to indulge in a luxury at a fraction of the cost involved in purchasing plants from a retail outlet. Since the conservatory is a controlled environment, it is also possible to have a flourishing garden of plants that would simply die if left to the whims of Mother Nature.

The conservatory allows year round growing of healthy vegetables for far less than purchasing them. In addition to cutting the cost of living, the wise conservatory owner has complete control over the plants and the chemicals associated with those plants. (fayl-eh-NOP-sis)

Conservatories are a multiple use addition. It is very simple to add passive solar heating or electricity production to a conservatory. The wise home owner who takes advantage of this possibility can simultaneously reduce his or her costs and reduce the environmental impact he or she causes simply by living life.

Conservatories are often viewed as a luxury that, especially in the current economic climate, many think they cannot afford. However, the addition of a conservatory to your home may prove to be a wise economic decision. There is potential for long term money opportunities that would not otherwise be available without a conservatory.

Today we depend upon large supermarket chains to provide our food. However, with the future sustainability of the planet in question we can save money and increase sustainability by begging to grow our own produce. Conservatories are a great help to begin saving money and growing our own food.

As well as offering an escape from a noisy household, providing sheltered enjoyment of your garden area and adding further space to your property a conservatory can help save money and increase the quality of life you enjoy in your home.

    Is a conservatory another word for greenhouse? If not, what are the differences between the two?

    Either way, I’d love to have one or both of them.

  2. Basically a conservatory and greenhouse are the same. Places I have heard called conservatories seem to be a bit more lush or homey. Ans seem to be able to handle all the different climates an area has.

    I plan on growing more year round and to make up for lousy springs or summers I think I will make sure to always grow in a greenhouse or conservatory. I am actually think of building a glass structure that will connect the house and garage. Denise

  4. As a builder in London, I can only agree with the sentiments above.

    1) We alll need to pitch in for a greener environment.
    2) A conservatory will also help add value to your property whether it is an an actual extension of your house or a garden conservatory.

    And here I was, thinking I was going to leave a comment on conservatories in a building context. Heheheh.. Silly me. 😉
