Which type of garden shed would suit me best?
Buying a new shed isn’t a simple decision; it’s a purchase which requires careful deliberation and planning. Nowadays, there are so many options available to choose from that trying to find the right one can seem an almost impossible task. However, once you consider a few simple factors, the process can seem far simpler.
Firstly, size. What will you be using your shed for? If it’s just to stow away a few gardening tools, children’s toys or bikes, a small storage unit will suffice. On the other hand, if you’re an avid DIY-er and need a large workspace filled with tools and benches, a garden workshop would be the better choice.
Also, for those with smaller gardens, a larger building may take up too much valuable room. Always consider how much of your available space you’re willing to set aside for a shed.
Next, think about what construction material you’d prefer.
Wooden sheds blend seamlessly into gardens thanks to their natural appearance. The traditional choice, wooden garden buildings remain ever popular despite the emergence of modern alternatives like plastic and metal.
Wooden sheds are tough and reliable too, ours are all delivered pre-treated and boast either 10 or 15 year anti-rot guarantees. We recommend opting for a pressure treated option, as they enjoy a lengthier 15 year guarantee, with no requirements for annual maintenance.
Wood as a material is straightforward to work with and customise too, you can easily add shelving units and hooks to help with storage and organisation. Plus, you can stain or paint wood to suit your preferences, and create a building that is truly personal to you.
Renowned for their impressive security, metal sheds are incredibly robust, resilient and perfect for storing your valuable gardening equipment. You can safely ignore two dated myths about metal sheds.
The first? Rust. Rust is no longer a concern for outdoor metal storage – most of our units feature substantial 10 – 25 year guarantees against perforation. In fact, metal needs very little maintenance.
The second? Visually unappealing. Metal buildings are no longer unattractive, awkward structures. Modern options are classy and contemporary. Our range includes a whole host of stunning sheds, in tasteful shades of grey, green and silver; we even have wood-effect.
Plastic sheds are becoming an increasingly popular choice, especially in more contemporary-styled gardens.
We have an impressive selection of plastic sheds available, in a whole host of different sizes and styles. Many are innovatively designed to, some feature skylights, dual entrances and wood effect panels.
One great benefit of plastic outdoor storage units is that they are low maintenance. All they need is an occasional hose down. Plus, UV-protected sheds won’t rot, fade or crack in changing temperatures. Also, many of our units are easy-assembly.
There are three main types of shed roofs.
Apex roofs are the most common. Classic and traditional, apex roof sheds feature a high central ridge running from front to back with a slope down to the eaves on either side. This gives you plenty of working space down the centre of the building.
Pent roofs are a more modern style. The roof slopes in one direction from a high point to a low. For this reason, pent sheds are suited perfectly to placement against walls or under low-hanging branches.
Uses for Garden Sheds
Sheds are the perfect place to house lawnmowers, bicycles and garden tools, keeping your garden organised and tidy. Stowing items away protects them from the elements and theft too.
Hooks are perfect for storing garden tools like spades, rakes and trowels. Shelves and boxes are ideal for planters, gardening gloves and seeds. Or, browse Pinterest for some creative storage ideas.
Install a high quality work bench into your shed to create a workshop environment. An outdoor building is the perfect place to complete messy jobs like woodworking and cleaning tools.
Potting sheds provide a superb balance between storage and growing space. They’re designed to provide your plants and flowers with the best possible start in life, offering shelter, protection and ample sunlight through their large windows. However, unlike a greenhouse, all of your gardening tools will be close to hand.
Working from home can sometimes be difficult if you don’t have a dedicated space. Mixing your professional and personal lives can cause issues in both. A garden office is an excellent investment for anyone who works from home full time. Sheds are perfect for this purpose. Contact a professional to install electricity, purchase a desk and filing cabinet, and you are set to improve both your productivity and home life.
If you’re tired of paying extortionate membership fees, the daily commute to a leisure centre and sharing equipment, it’s time to invest in a garden gym. Be sure to choose a shed with a solid floor, or one which is anchored directly to a concrete base, to support heavy weights and cardio machines.
