conservatory on raised garden

Postby madge95 » Sat Sep 29, 2012 2:38 am

If a conservatory, leading from patio doors, will be on ground which has been raised, compared with neighbours on the other side of the fence, by about 18"- 24" and no retaining wall has been installed, considering the extra weight of a conservatory on the ground, how close to the differing garden heights i.e. the dividing fence, will it be safe to build it. The ground is clay and there is a 2m high fence between the gardens.

Simply Build It

the weight issue is minimal due to the foundation being lower than the 18inches build up of the garden.
The foundation ideally should be a minimum of 2feet deep for a conservatory.Also build it 1metre away from the fence.
