    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

  6. Ten Perfect Planters for Your Garden

    Ten Perfect Planters for Your Garden

    A wooden planter is such a garden essential that to have a garden but no planter would be like using a pen without ink, making an omelette without an egg or wearing glasses without lenses.

  8. What to Look for When Choosing Your Garden Furniture

    What to Look for When Choosing Your 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.

  9. How to Choose and Install Border Edging

    How to Choose and Install Border Edging

    No Garden Design is Complete Without Border Edging

    Designing and maintaining an attractive garden is hard work. There is no doubt about it. Hours of planning, sowing, pruning and mowing (plus a whole host of other activities) are required to keep gardens presentable. Why then, ruin all your hard work by neglecting simple tasks? One such example is garden border edging. Omitting this vital finishing touch is a horticultural crime so heinous it could be compared to pairing a tailored three-piece suit with scuffed, unpolished shoes. Scruffy and unforgiveable. The separation between lawn and flower bed simply must be distinctly marked. 

    What type of border edging to use?

    Wood is the most common material to use as garden border edging; wood looks natural and blends in superbly with surrounding fence panels,

    It is the Year of The Potting Shed – Don’t Be Left Without One

    The Year of the Potting Shed

    Sitting somewhere between a conventional shed and a greenhouse, the potting shed was for too long overlooked and undervalued.

    Homeowners, searching for a strong and hardwearing garden storage facility, traditionally turned to its alpha-male big brother, the conventional shed, to satisfy their needs.

    Gardeners, desperate to secure those few extra degrees of winter heat for their beloved plants, typically found themselves seduced by the glamour of its younger sister, the greenhouse, with her slender frame and see-through panels leaving little to the imagination.

    Lost in this garden ‘no man’s land’, a lesser building might have accepted its fate and vanished into obscurity, but not the potting shed.

    For those in the know have always seen the true value of this wonderful structure, and now more people are catching on. Many more people. So many, in fact, that 2018 promises to be the start of a new er
