    Why Should I Buy a Summer House?

    Extend Summer and Enjoy Your Garden All-Year-Round with a Summerhouse

    Creating Shade in Your Garden

    The case for purchasing a pergola, canopy, gazebo or garden arbour...

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the current hot weather as much as everyone else; but, sometimes, it’s nice to sit outside, in the shade, without feeling like you’re beginning to melt, or worrying about waking up in the morning as red as a lobster, with painful peeling shoulders.

    Here are a few options well worth considering, and, don’t worry, there’s

    Your garden is an extension of your home and, just as your home wouldn't be the same without a few essentials (a sofa, a bed, a dining table, to name a few), your garden won't be the same without the following Top 5 Garden Essentials. And, being experts in all things timber, we're showing you the wooden garden essentials, of course..

     

    1. A Garden Shed

    Taking care of meticulously planned out borders, carefully designed lawns and quirky ornaments requires at least a few pieces of gardening equipment. Unless you want incessant complaints from your significant other, it’s probably worth investing in a proper storage solution for these tools, rather than carefully balancing them behind the back door (a disaster waiting to happen). A wooden shed is the answer.

    Perfect for storing tools and children’s toys, or even acting as a tranquil spot within which to relax aft

    Bored With Retirement? Turn Your Shed into A Workshop

    You’ve worked hard all your life and it was a wonderful feeling, retiring. For the first time in life, you experienced a real sense of freedom. And when you and the other-half finally holidayed in that far-flung place you’d always dreamed about? Well, it was an experience you’ll never forget.

    What to Look for When Choosing Garden Furniture

    The garden is a place that is increasingly seen as an extension of the home - somewhere we can appreciate nature, yes, but also an area to relax with friends and family during the warmer, summer months.

    Just as we would never consider a sofa or table-free lounge, where we were forced to stand up to watch television or eat our meals, nor should the modern householder consider an empty garden, devoid of comfort.

    Outdoor furniture is simply a must if you’re to maximise enjoyment of your garden space. Here, we take a look at some of the options available to you, as well as showing you a range of Shedstore’s fantastic garden furniture.
