Garden Sheds

Garden shed is one of the unique ways to store occasionally used gardening stuff or tools aesthetically in an organized manner. An attracting garden sheds serves more than just a storage area in your garden. It can create a comfortable work space, provide a backdrop for prized plants and deliver a destination where you can relax and entertain your friends.

Use of Garden Shed

A perfectly landscape garden with beautiful garden shed can be compared with the heaven in the earth. Once Thomas Jefferson quoted “No occupation is so delight to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden---I am still devoted to the garden. But though an old man, I am but a young gardener.”

A garden shed serve the main purpose of storing stuff like wheel barrow, an extra bag of potting soil or may be the lawn mower etc. It creates room for extra things from your basement as well as keeps the tools which are necessary for your outdoor project.

Types of garden sheds

Garden shed can be classified in different way. It absolutely depends on the requirements and usage.

· It is very important to decide whether we need a custom made shed or we want to build it from scratch. There are different options of custom made garden shed available in the market, by which you can install it in a hassle free way.

· The garden shed can be categorized by the purpose of their usage. Whether we just want to add an extra space of our spring cleaning clutter or we want to make it useful dedicatedly organized tool box to nurture our hobby of gardening.

· Other way of categorizing the garden shed is by its architecture and construction. It also important to plan and decide what type of material you want to use for the shed.


Choosing the right shed

A basic garden shed-This is the kind of shed that most people tend to built in their gardens. This is commonly use to store the gardening equipment.

A three in one shed-It serves different purpose rather than just storing. You have the option of potting shed and a gazebo comes with the shed itself. And then you can make some arrangements to store your water pipes etc in the wall or rack.

Tool Shed – This is extremely handy for any gardener to store their tools for using them in garden or for using the machine or screwdrivers to fix your car. It not only provides enough space to store equipment for the gardening, it also helps them to keep it neat and clean.

Large Garden sheds-This is a plus size shed serves different purpose. This helps you to spend a considerable amount time with nature. This can be equipped with some important stuff you might need to relax like a brewing machine or a book case.

Garden shed made up of different materials

Plastic shed-These are mostly available in the market. It is easy to built and durable. Easy to clean and does not attract insects.

Metal sheds-They are also popular in terms of material. They are usually made from iron, steel, or aluminum. They are long lasting and resistant to extreme condition like fire.

Wooden shed-This one of the mostly preferred material in making garden shed. Although have certain drawbacks over plastic and metal shed, they look most charming and attractive option for most home owners.

There are some vendors which offer exclusively designed custom made luxurious garden shed. This helps not only grabbing attention but also work as great stress buster. Some of these ideas are cottage charm, breeze right through, overarching antiquity, rustic retreat, Tudor traditions or go green etc are some of them.

Making your own shed

This can be a very exciting project if you want to start making your own garden shed. You need to plan the area which you need to utilize and money you want to invest. Buying kit is easiest option, but often you cannot get the right one you are looking for. Making your own tailor made garden shed may cost more and take longer, but it's the best way to fulfill your desire. A 9 x 13-ft. shed built with decent materials and conventional farming methods can cost up to few thousand dollars. But here you can choose your own foundation, color, aeration, source of light, an indoor potting benches or drawers and bins for storage. A perfectly designed garden shed can be timeless classic and everyday source of enjoyment for family.

      This is a great hub! The other really nice item to have while gardening is the garden cart. It is much easier to use than a wheelbarrow.
