Description

Expertly made here, in the UK, the 8' x 6' Forest 25yr Guarantee Shiplap Pressure Treated Potting Shed (2.42m x 1.99m) comes with a host of premium features, including an exceptionally weathertight build, to help plants prosper and ensure A1 garden storage.

The Longest Guarantee on the Market

This wooden potting shed is pressure treated and backed by an unbeatable 25-year anti-rot guarantee, which is the longest on the market. No further anti-rot treatment will ever be required, saving time and money.

A Completely Modular Design

A completely modular design means this garden potting shed is delivered in smaller sections of interchangeable panels, making it far easier to assemble than most potting sheds. This modular design also allows a choice of door placement, so the shed can be customised to match precise requirements. And with 30% thicker framing than standard wooden sheds, this 8x6 potting shed isn't just easy to assemble and versatile, it's exceptionally strong too.

Strong, Durable, Watertight Construction

Expertly constructed from 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding, on a 28mm x 56mm frame, this planting shed’s walls are strong, durable and completely watertight.

The floor is made from premium 12mm tongue and groove, and supported by pressure-treated bearers to provide extra protection from ground moisture. It will easily accommodate heavier items and cope with regular footfall.

Reinforced by a metal truss bracket, the roof is built from 8mm solid sheet and features a traditional apex design for efficient rainwater runoff and more headroom. It is fitted with a top-quality green-mineral-felt cover to provide the potting shed with complete weatherproof protection.

Security Door, Extensive Glazing and Staging

The door can be installed at either end of the shed, to suit the orientation of the garden. It comes with double-Z framing for added strength and to prevent it losing shape. Hidden security hinges and a pad bolt keep valuable tools secure (padlock not included).

Two opening windows allow effective ventilation, while the 10 fixed windows flood the potting shed with natural light. They are all made from acrylic, so are tough, lightweight, completely shatterproof, and will neither fade nor discolour in the sun.

This premium potting shed also comes with 2 sets of 2-tier staging, providing the perfect space for potting and displaying plants.

A Potting Shed for a Brighter Future

This garden potting shed is built in the UK using FSC® certified UK timber. This means the wood is only sourced from sustainable, well-managed forests and the environmental impact of the production process is kept to a minimum. A beautiful smooth-planed finish nicely rounds off the potting shed’s timelessly attractive appearance.

White Glove Delivery Service

Forest's White Glove Service will deliver this potting 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 and pressure-treated shed base.

Why choose a Forest Potting Shed?

Why choose a Forest Potting Shed?

 

At last, a potting shed to meet every gardener's needs! This uniquely-designed Forest Shiplap Potting Shed has one eye on growing, the other on storage, so provides the perfect environment to pot plants PLUS a stylish, secure home for your tools. Its premium build and market-leading 25-year anti-rot guarantee make this potting shed the long-term answer to all of your gardening requirements. 

TREATMENT

Pressure treatment forces preservative deep inside the wood. 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.
 

CLADDING

Shiplap cladding provides consistency and strength as well as providing the traditional style we all know and love. The tightly-interlocking boards ensure the shed remains completely weathertight, while shiplap’s scalloped profile provides excellent rainwater runoff. 

TONGUE & GROOVE BOARDED FLOOR

The robust and stable 12mm tongue and groove floor is elevated by pressure-treated joists for extra protection from ground moisture. Due to its thickness, a tongue and groove floor improves the shed’s level of insulation and will neither buckle under the weight of heavier items nor regular footfall.

ROOF COVERING

The roof is made from 8mm OSB and comes with a premium mineral felt covering. This ensures it is tough, durable and completely weathertight.

WINDOWS

Ten fixed windows allow an abundance of natural light to flow into the shed, while 2 further opening windows provide you with welcome ventilation on a hot, sunny day. Our windows are glazed with acrylic glazing. These windows are completely shatterproof and will neither discolour nor fade over time. 

DOORS

The single door can be positioned at either side of the shed, with a left or right-hand opening. It is ledged, braced and fitted with a pad bolt, so rest assured that your valuable tools will remain safe from unwanted attention (padlock not supplied).

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.

VACUUM

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

FLOODED

Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.

PRESSURE

Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.

VACUUM

Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.

 

DRY

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

 

NO NEED TO RE-TREAT - SAVING YOU TIME AND MONEY!
