    Garden Seating Has Moved On

    Garden seating has changed immeasurably from the days when most people used to relax outdoors on a pair of rusty, old deckchairs.

    We believe that garden seating should be as well-made and stylish as the furniture in our lounges or dining rooms.

    Using Solar Power in Garden Buildings

    Add power to your shed or summer house without an electrician

    To make the most out of any shed, workshop, summerhouse or log cabin, you need to have lighting and power.

    This does not mean paying the high costs of an electrician laying cables under the lawn and wiring the outdoor building up to the mains. Instead, the easiest and most cost effective choice is to use solar power in garden buildings.

    Why to Buy Wheelie Bin Storage and What are the Options

    Wheelie bins are certainly not the most aesthetically pleasing (nor the best smelling) of garden features, despite being invaluable to every home.

    Furthermore, if the proper garden storage of wheelie bins is neglected, they can cause even more unpleasantness.

    This is the reason why wheelie bin storage is such a sound investment.

    Think we're exaggerating? Then please read on...

    Why You Need Wheelie Bin Storage

  7. Creating Shade in Your Garden

    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. Trust me, sunburn is not a look you want to be sporting for the big meeting first thing on Monday.

    Creating some shelter in your garden offers you welcome respite from the scorching summer sun, allowing you to spend more time outside, at a much more comfortable temperature.

    Here are a few options well worth considering, and, don’t worry, there’s nothing

    5 Fantastic Gazebos for Summer and Beyond

    In the midst of a beautiful summer, our thoughts inevitably turn to the outdoors and, for most of us, this begins with the garden. Suitable for boisterous children’s games, alfresco dining with a loved one, entertaining friends… nowhere offers us as much scope for enjoyment as our garden space. What’s more, nobody appreciates this more than Shedstore, the UK’s leading supplier of everything related to gardens. However, if we were forced to recommend just one, single product to you this summer, what would it be? Without hesitation, our answer is a gazebo.

    A wooden gazebo is one of those rare items that truly does offer you the best of both worlds: easy to erect yet reassuringly robust; low-maintenance b

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 after a hard day’s w
