DIY- Build a Garden Shed

Updated on August 8, 2011

What do you do with all of your garden supplies?

When you are a Do It Yourselfer, you usually have alot of tools to get the jobs around your home and garden done.

This means you need adequate storage space for these tools. You also need a place to store lawn furniture, lawn mowers, garden decor, and more.

The answer can be as simple as building a garden shed for your storage needs.

There are lots of books on shed plans out here. Books can be very inspiring even if you don't go with a plan featured in the book. They are great for generating ideas, and design styles.

If space allows make sure to build you garden shed large enough to take care of your storage needs.

You may even decide to make the shed more than just a storage area. Other options include having a green house, or even a work shop for woodworking projects all included in one shed.

Location, Location, Location

After you have decided to build a garden shed, make sure that you build it in a convenient location on your property. The shed needs to be within easy access to garden areas, lawn and other areas of the property.

A good location is to the back of the property or on a side area, near your property line. Tuck the shed into a cormer, landscape around it, and before you know it, it will looks like it has always been there.

Things to consider include you entry, which is the best for your needs, a set of steps, or a ramp? Are you planning on storing lawn mowers, or tractors in the shed? If so, a ramp would make access easier for these types of equipment.
