Garden workshops, also known as "workshop sheds", are heavy-duty outdoor buildings that come in metal or timber and are designed to offer a workspace close to nature. Unlike standard sheds, these are constructed from heavy-duty timber or premium metals such as galvanised steel.
They are larger, typically starting from 10x6 and the wooden workshop sheds are equipped with at least two windows for natural light and air circulation, making them ideal for crafters, makers, and DIY enthusiasts. Workshops can be customised with workbenches, tool racks, and shatterproof windows, providing a versatile space that encourages the build-up of DIY skills.
Choosing a metal or wooden garden workshop over other garden buildings, such as standard sheds and log cabins comes with several benefits. Firstly, wooden and metal garden workshops are built for purpose and provide ample indoor space to carry out your work. They offer excellent customisation options, allowing you to tailor the space to your needs, including installing shelves, racks and workbenches.
Garden workshops have good soundproofing qualities, making them suitable for noisy tools and operations. Lastly, these workshops are durable, made from pressure-treated timber that is resistant to rot. With proper care, a metal or wooden garden workshop can be a long-lasting addition to your garden, providing a secure area for your hobbies and storage needs.
We have assembled this garden workshops page by adding specifically designed workshop sheds along with products from other categories, that would make ideal garden workshops.
These are described below:
You will see many of the products above described as a “workshop shed”. Where you see this, you can rely on the fact that this shed has been specifically designed for workshop purposes. These products are typically wooden workshops and worth very serious consideration when you are narrowing down your selection to a final preferred garden workshop. However, that’s not to rule out the metal options as these provide a fantastic alternative to timber.
Metal workshops are a robust alternative to wooden workshops. These structures are known for their resilience, particularly in harsher environments. Crafted from sturdy, galvanised steel, metal workshops offer excellent durability and fire-resistance, making them suitable for activities requiring an enclosed space.
One of the key advantages of metal workshops is their low maintenance. Unlike wooden workshops, they don't require regular treatments to prevent rot or insect damage. This makes them a practical choice for those seeking a workshop that can withstand the elements with minimal upkeep.
Despite their utilitarian nature, metal workshops don't compromise on style. Many modern designs are available, ensuring that your workshop can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Whether you're a professional craftsman or a hobbyist, a metal workshop can provide a secure, long-lasting space for your projects.

Although some of the above pursuits start as fun leisure activities, we have heard many stories of them becoming income-generating businesses. Imagine selling your own artwork, wooden craft, metal masterpieces, pottery, or creative writing? There is something special about being in the garden and how it “gets the creative juices flowing”.
