Anyone who considers themselves a gardener who lovingly tends to the flora and fauna in their front, back or side yards (or all three) will eventually come to the conclusion that they need a garden shed. A garden shed is an ideal place to not only store your gardening tools and all related items. It also gives you an opportunity to have a useful, practical and even pretty tiny building on your property.
Great Deals for Great Storage
Sure there are those who opt for the DIY option, but with so many great deals on high-quality sheds, buying will end up being the better bargain and choice. Some of the U.K.’s top dealers offer a Garden Buildings Direct voucher which means you don’t have to spend a fortune to have the ideal shed. If you compare the two, you’re likely to find that purchasing a shed has benefits that outweigh building one yourself. The latter involves a good deal of research, time and energy. A garden shed is not the place to suddenly start learning to do-it-yourself – it’s not an easy project. However, great quality sheds are available at very reasonable rates and with time saved, it’s very cost efficient. Finally, by purchasing a shed from a reputable dealer, the buyer has the option to customise what they need in a shed.
Adding to the Landscape
A quality garden shed can certainly enhance the design you’ve carefully crafted in your yard or the beautiful natural growth. Some gardeners have chosen to make the outside of their purchased shed lovely by attaching trellises against the storage shed walls and allowing the greenery to grow. Still others have actually placed planter boxes around the bottom edges or under windows. The colour of flowers and melding of the shed and the actual garden create a picturesque setting.
Have It Your Way
You can order a shed in any number of styles of available wood, the accenting hardware, the design of the roof and the size of the shed. Every gardener marches to their own drum and has favourite tools, potions and elixir mixes that, when combine, create and maintain your dream garden. You can opt for a very small spruce shell shed, with an asphalt roof and zinc-plated fittings, or, you can build what is not only a shed but an outbuilding refuge. Some sheds look like sturdy wardrobes (but instead of housing winter clothing, it holds all of your tools), and others look like tiny little cottages.
Sheds are available in an amazing array of sizes (in addition to the multitude of building materials). There are sheds designed to “sit” against an existing wall (or your house, barn or garage. There are stand-alone sheds, too.
Know Your Property
Evaluate what you have and what you need: what kind of room do you have for a shed? Make sure it doesn’t infringe on the garden you’re tending (the entire reason for the shed). How much of your shed will be “in view”? If it can be seen in the same view as the front of your house, you may want to make aesthetics a priority.
