4Life™ Pressure Treated Sheds are the best range of overlap sheds Forest has ever made. Available in a variety of styles and sizes, they are all expertly designed and built in the UK. This one is the 6x4 Apex Shed with Lean To (1.88m x 2.01m), so provides multiple storage options for a smaller garden.

Pressure-Treated Wood with a 4Life™ Guarantee

This wooden shed is pressure treated to prevent rot and backed by an unbeatable 25-year anti-rot guarantee, which is the longest guarantee on the market. The wood will never need retreating, saving time and money. You'll only ever need one shed with a 4Life™ Shed!

Fully Modular Design

Now with an improved fully modular design, this garden shed is delivered in smaller sections of interchangeable panels, making it far easier to assemble than most wooden sheds. This modular design also allows a market-leading choice of door and window placements, so the shed can be customised to match precise requirements. And with 30% more framing than standard wooden sheds, this 6x4 shed isn't just easy to assemble and versatile, it's incredibly strong too.

Walls, Floor and Roof

The walls are built from 7mm overlap cladding, which ensures effective rainwater runoff and allows the timber to move naturally over the changing seasons. Unlike most other overlap sheds, the boards are straight cut, giving them a far more stylish finish.

Constructed from 14mm solid wood, the floor is 40% thicker than regular shed flooring and comes with pressure-treated bearers to provide extra protection from ground moisture.

The roof is made from 8mm solid sheet and fitted with a premium mineral-felt cover for complete weatherproof protection. Its apex design, smooth-planed barge boards and attractive finials add the finishing touches to an exceptionally stylish appearance.

A Security-Enhanced Shed

The door can be installed in different positions and hung for a left or right-hand opening. It comes with double-Z framing for added strength and to prevent it losing shape. Hidden security hinges and a hasp & staple plate keep valuable tools secure (padlock not included).

The PET-glazed window allows plenty of natural light into the shed. It is made from recyclable materials, completely shatterproof, and will neither fade nor discolour in the sun. A high roofline provides generous headroom and increases garden storage options.

The Lean To

The lean to features 2 slatted sides. The floor and roof are built from exactly the same materials as the rest of the shed. This lean to makes the ideal logstore and can be used for a range of other outdoor storage purposes too.

White Glove Delivery Service

Forest's White Glove Service will deliver this shed for free to most UK addresses, straight into the customer's garden, with all of the packaging removed. Clear instructions and a full set of fixings are included for a straightforward assembly.

Optional Upgrades

Optional upgrades include a professional installation service.

Why Choose a Forest Overlap 4Life Shed™?

Forest Garden are proud to introduce their latest innovation: The 4Life Shed™.  You can configure a shed that suits you and your garden. All boast a solid timber floor, 30% more framing and are easier to build. You'll only ever need one shed with a 4Life Shed™.



Why you need a Forest Overlap Pressure Treated 4Life Shed™?


If you're looking to purchase a new shed and can afford a slightly higher initial spend, buying a pressure treated shed will save you a lot of time and money in the long term. 4Life Sheds are completely maintenance free - there is no need to ever apply treatment. Most other sheds require treatment once built - then yearly treatment thereafter.


Forest branded pressure treated sheds have a number of features to ensure maximum durability and strength including solid boarded wooden floors, security door hinges, extra framing and so much more. 


1. Metal Roof Truss Brackets

Larger apex models feature a metal truss bracket that adds strength to the roof and ensures best alignment.

2. High Quality Roof

The roof is made from 8mm OSB and is covered in a durable weatherproof felt. Reflecting the high quality of this shed, the roof is finished with smooth planed barge boards and a decorative finial.

3. Increased Security Windows

Our windows are glazed with shatterproof PET glazing, made from recycled materials, which will not yellow or become brittle over time. PET is more robust than the styrene used in standard sheds.

4. Pressure Treated Fully Modular Panels

Pressure treatment forces preservative deep inside the timber. The result is long-lasting protection against rot and fungal decay. There is no need to re-treat EVER, saving an estimated £200 in time and treatment costs compared to dip treated sheds. Fully modular construction - same size panels are interchangeable. You can choose the window and door placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design. 

5. Thick Timber Framing & Overlap Cladding

The design of our sheds feature more extenisve framing than standard sheds (30% more framing). This results in a more robust build. 7mm straight edge overlap cladding provides consistency and strength as well as providing the traditional style we all know and love. The high-quality cladding means the panels are less likely to warp or develop gaps.

6. Hidden Hinges

Our doors are fitted with hidden security hinges, the hidden hinges cannot be tampered with from the outside.

7. Robust Doors with Double Z Framing

Our doors feature double Z bracing for extra strength, security and to prevent the doors dropping. This is superior to the basic ledge bracing on standard sheds.

8. Secure Door Latch Plate Fastened

The doors are fitted with a hasp and staple closure, ready for you to add a padlock (padlock not included).

9. Solid Wooden Floor

Strong 14mm pressure-treated boarded timber floor. This wooden floor is built to withstand storage of heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor is far superior to the OSB that comes with standard sheds.

Highly Adaptable



Fully modular panels mean that the same size panels are interchangeable. 

You choose the window and door placement that suits your garden.

Modular panels are easier to handle - meaning sheds are quicker and simpler to build. 

Flexible Window Panels

Window panels can be interchanged with other panels of the same size and can be placed on either side of the shed - you can choose the window placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design. See the example of the 8x6 Apex Shed above. The Apex Shed can also be turned into a Reverse Apex Shed.

Flexible Door Positions 

Doors can be fitted in different ways to suit your needs. Single doors can also be hung to be left- or right-hand opening.





Pressure Treatment Process Explained

The Pressure Treatment process for timber has been applied to products for a number of years; the key benefit of this process is that the preservative is forced under vacuum pressure right deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure. The preservative becomes an integral part of the wood; giving a long life and protection against rot.


This process also means that you never have to apply preservatives to your garden shed, and it allows the natural colours of the timber to show through and so your shed blends easily within your garden. Surprisingly, our Pressure Treated Sheds are only slightly more expensive than Dip Treated Sheds.


Timber is loaded into chamber and a vacuum empties timber cells of air.


Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.


Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.


Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.



Timber draws in surface excess of preservative under low pressure, then is left to dry.

At Forest, we know a fair bit about fences. And sheds for that matter. In fact, we've been one of the UK's most trusted manufacturer and distributor of quality wooden garden products for over 50 years.


With two sawmills in the UK processing locally-sourced timber, and a Head Office in Hartlebury, Worcestershire, you’ll find our range of garden buildings, fencing, decking and decorative structures for sale across many sites online and in over 3,000 retail stores. From the forest to the doorstep, we are involved every step of the way to ensure we bring you the best product and service.


Well made in Britain


The majority of the timber we use is grown and felled from managed UK forests across Scotland and Wales. After felling, the timber is cut and processed in one of our nearby sawmills and taken to our manufacturing operation in the heart of Britain. It is here our skilled workforce proudly produce the widest range of garden buildings, fencing and structures available in the UK.


All of the products that we sell are dispatched from this site. The final part of their journey is managed by our dedicated delivery department who are responsible for distribution direct to customers' homes by our fleet of vehicles.


Home Grown


We're proud to say that the majority of the timber we use is cut in our very own sawmill from trees grown in the UK.


Not only that, but our range is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the majority of our products carry the FSC logo - so you know that our timber is ethically sourced from well-managed, sustainable forests that are replanted for future generations.
