Bringing the outdoors inside with Nordic Garden Buildings

NordicAs spring is in full bloom and we turn our attentions to the garden, there’s never been a better time to invest in some quality outdoor living. Whether you’re a GYO enthusiast wishing to create an ideal growing environment, or just seeking a peaceful retreat with the newspaper or perhaps just wanting more space to entertain, there are many inspirational options available to make your dream a reality.  As Europe’s leading manufacturer of freestanding PVC-u garden buildings, Nordic Garden Buildings (NGB) offers an overview of its extensive range of freestanding garden buildings – from greenhouses, pavilions and orangeries to summerhouses, canopies and pergodas.

Sowing the Seeds

Whether you are gardening as a hobby or attempting to become self-sufficient, a key benefit of a greenhouse is the ability to control the environment in which you grow your plants. In order to enhance cultivation and growing conditions, NGB’s Scanline Greenhouses have been designed to bring the thermal efficiencies of PVC-u double glazing into the greenhouse. A clear multi-wall polycarbonate roof offers additional insulation for those wintry days, with an optional roof vent with Bayliss auto opener for when temperatures increase, without you having to be there.

A robust exterior offers longevity and will withstand typically unpredictable weather conditions all year round. With six colours to choose from and available in an assortment of sizes and styles, every Scanline Greenhouse comes with multi-point door and window locks, providing your plants and tools with a safe, strong and reliable home.

Installation could not be quicker or simpler – for all those eager green fingers, there is an extra option of a one day install, meaning those tomatoes will be potted in no time.

Optional extras include:

  • Window opener
  • Extra single door
  • Black or white guttering on one or both sides
  • Bayliss auto roof vent opener
  • Under sill packer for flat surfaces
  • Delivery and one day install

A Room with a View

Nordic’s range of pavilions affords the luxury of space combined with panoramic views, so you can get to fully appreciate the changes to your garden each season brings.  Whatever the weather, pavilions give a great sense of living outdoors, as well as offering a generous degree of flexibility thanks to their space – they are often used as an extra room. If you like the idea of a place for entertaining and dining, or somewhere just to relax with a book or music with a glass of wine in hand, then a pavilion may just be the thing for you.

Scanline Pavilions

Scanline Pavilions provide the latest double glazing technology, meaning you’re never cold in winter and always kept cool in summer. A minimal heat source allows them to stay warm and heat up very quickly during the colder times of year, and you can really enjoy those balmy summer evenings late into the night without the need for patio heaters or burners.

Nordic Pavilions

The Nordic Pavilion range shares one defining feature which makes it so unique: its guttering system. It’s an integral load bearing part of the structure and is not bolted on, as found on all other pavilions on the market. It also has an aesthetically pleasing look, with outstanding strength which allows you to specify different roof types. Its ability to hold up to five tonnes of water (when tested) means it can withstand extreme weather conditions such as wind, rain and snow.

Optional extras across both ranges include:

  • Extra window opener
  • Extra door
  • Extra panel flat
  • Extra panel tongue & groove
  • Finial & Cresting
  • Delivery and two day install

An Affordable, Classy Retreat 

Historically, orangeries were fashionable garden buildings associated with only the very wealthy in large country houses centuries ago. Today, due to their affordability, they can be enjoyed by everyone due to Nordic’s freestanding, maintenance free and PVC-u double glazed offering.

Scanline Orangeries

Designed for multi-use, such versatility means you can use your orangery for whatever purpose you desire – from growing exotic plants and flowers to an amazing social space for those memorable get-togethers. Perhaps you need an escape from hectic family life where you can ‘switch off’ – an orangerie can provide a luxurious ‘home from home’ retreat.

Nordic Orangeries

Opting for an orangery from the Nordic range means you’ll have guttering with remarkable strength – and it looks fantastic too. As a unique characteristic found across all the Nordic Garden Building ranges, the gutter is an integral load bearing part of the structure and does not stick out like a proverbial sore thumb like all other buildings on the market. This robustness allows you to choose a glass roof without compromising on structural strength.

Optional extras across both ranges include:

  • Opening window
  • Roof vent
  • Extra window opener
  • Extra single door
  • Extra double door
  • Finial & Cresting
  • Black or white guttering on one or both sides
  • Delivery and two day install


Perhaps the most popular type of extended living space, the conservatory appears to stand the test of time –as well as all weathers! What could be better than enhancing your home from a choice of stylish, contemporary designs and colour ranges, not to mention a structure that is robust and built to last? Nordic’s conservatories from both the Scanline and Nordic ranges come with standard specifications to include one set of double doors and two opening windows, with tie bars (when required). An integrated guttering system enables you to choose between a glass roof and tile effect roof in a selection of exciting colours.


Features & benefits:

  • PVC construction

Low maintenance, safe and strong, providing a quality product at a great price.

  • Double glazed

Offers reassurance with its safety and strength, while providing a ‘clean’, modern look.

  • Choice of polycarbonate or glass roof (optional glass roof for Scanline range):

No ‘made to measure’ which can cause significant cost rises, without compromising on manufacturing quality.

  • Multi-point locks

A secure locking system means Nordic build to the same standard as your house, offering peace of mind with your furniture and valuables.

  • Six colour options

From a palette of colours, you tell Nordic what you want. The team can match it to fit in with other buildings or your house windows style/colour.

  • Latest PVC-u external profiles

Minimum maintenance, rot-free and no need for painting. No risk of shrinkage and expansion either.

Canopy Conservatory living – from your terrace to your conservatory lounge sofa

On a budget or after something more streamlined? Nordic’s range of canopies provide a fresh alternative to create further recreational space. A practical addition to any garden, the upright posts conceal any water runoff so there’s no unsightly guttering to worry about. Three different roof options are also available including a 10mm safety glass option, giving the Nordic Canopy that additional edge and helps to create a minimalist look that is sleek and practical with a simple upkeep, even for the most unenthusiastic garden maintainers!

Owning a summerhouse is becoming extremely popular, offering all the benefits and features an orangery, pavilion or even conservatory gives you. Nordic’s traditional design will fit most gardens, and will provide a sturdy, insulated offering thanks to double glazed safety glass. It also includes Veranda sides, gutter and downpipe with polycarbonate roof so it’s more than just a retreat in summer, but a house for all seasons too!

If you want to impress your friends, then a pergoda offers some exotic food for thought. They are surprisingly robust, built to withstand heavy rain and snow, and even the more blustery days. Again, as with all Nordic Garden Buildings, the PVC-u construction gives this garden feature a very low maintenance factor. You also needn’t fear any rot, mundane painting chores, shrinkage and expansion as you find with wooden buildings. Who knew garden shelters could be quite so exquisite?

With such a wide and inspiring selection of garden buildings to choose from today, there is a garden feature to suit everyone’s needs, providing a source of lifelong pleasure within your very own living space.
