Yardmaster's Range of Products


Available in a wide range of colours and designs, Yardmaster metal sheds and prefab garages are always rust resistant, maintenance free and supplied with long guarantees.



Yardmaster Metal Sheds

Firstly, let’s take a look at the main features of a Yardmaster shed; then we’ll examine their garages.


The Castleton, Shiplap and Woodview are just some of Yardmaster’s specialist shed lines.


All of them are extremely well built, packed full of premium features, and come without windows in keeping with their security-conscious designs.



Metal Shed Cladding


Yardmaster sheds are constructed from hot-dipped galvanised steel, boast 7 protective layers and include a baked-on finish in a range of attractive colours.


This makes them strong; durable; blister, crack and insect-proof; as well as completely weathertight.

There’s no need to worry about painting or treating a Yardmaster shed, either, because the 7 protective layers mean that rust will never be an issue and the shed will remain looking pristine for many years to come.


The only real difference in the various ranges’ cladding is aesthetic, with the BalmoralGlencoe and Shiplap models featuring an eye-catching shiplap-wood-effect finish. The other ranges come with smoother cladding, in keeping with traditional metal shed designs.

Yardmaster Best Buy 1

Completely constructed from hot-dipped galvanised steel and boasting Yardmaster’s unique 7 layers of protection, this metal shed is designed with a traditional apex roof and beautiful wood-effect finish.


Standing well over 7-feet tall and with some impressive safety features, it provides spacious and secure garden storage for tools and outdoor equipment.

Yardmaster Shed: Floor and Roof


Yardmaster metal sheds are designed without a floor, but come with an anchor kit to secure them to the ground.


Should the lack of flooring be a problem, Yardmaster sell a robust metal floor support kit as an optional extra, allowing the customer to add their own timber floor.


The roof of a Yardmaster shed is made using the same hot-dip galvanised steel as the rest of the structure, so there’s no need to worry about wind-torn roof felt and the like – complete, permanent weatherproof protection is provided by the rust-resistant metal itself, which, of course, comes as standard.


Both traditional apex and modern pent roof designs are widely available.

Yardmaster Best Buy 2

One of our most popular shed sizes, this 10x8 shed offers secure, weathertight, zero-hassle garden storage, and is backed by a fantastic 15-year anti-rust guarantee.


What’s more, this metal shed’s baked-on dark-green finish, contrasting silver-coloured doors and traditional apex roof make for an exceptionally smart appearance.

Yardmaster Shed: Doors

Most Yardmaster sheds feature sliding double doors, which overlap and have exceptionally smooth traction. This is great news when it comes to maximising available garden space.


From a security point of view too, these doors are first class. They typically include a hot-dipped galvanised steel build, anti-tamper bolts and padlock fixing, although please note that the padlock must be bought separately.

Yardmaster Best Buy 3

Unlike Yardmaster’s usual offerings, which come with sliding double doors, this small, metal shed features a single, hinged door. However, its hot-dipped galvanised-steel construction, padlock fixing and anti-tamper bolts ensure all stored items enjoy Yardmaster’s usual outstanding levels of security.


With its slimline design and modern pent roof, this tool store is easy to position against a wall or fence for unobtrusive, space-saving garden storage.

Yardmaster Shed: Guarantees


Make no mistake about it, a Yardmaster shed will withstand whatever is thrown at it and will last for years. Therefore, it’s no surprise that all of them come with either a 10-year or 15-year anti-rust guarantee.

Yardmaster Best Buy 4

Supplied with a fantastic 15-year anti-rust guarantee, this large metal shed offers outstanding garden storage for all manner of tools and equipment.


Boasting both beauty and brawn too, it comes with a premium galvanised-steel build, 7 layers of anti-corrosion protection and baked-on, fashionable anthracite-grey finish.

Yardmaster Shed: Other Key Features

Yardmaster sheds include plenty of great practical features. Typical examples include ventilated gables, to reduce condensation and optimise garden storage conditions; increased shed height, allowing plenty of headroom; and rust-proof screws to keep the shed looking spick and span.


What’s more, with clearly-numbered parts, excellent assembly instructions and UK-based telephone support all as standard, a Yardmaster shed can be assembled far more straightforwardly than most other metal sheds.

Yardmaster Best Buy 5

With modest proportions but standing over 6-feet tall, this pent shed is deceptively spacious and perfectly designed to store long-handled tools.


Its fire-retardant qualities also make it the ideal storage shed for caravan parks, where non-combustible outdoor storage is compulsory. In seaside areas, where rust can be an even greater threat, Yardmaster’s 7 layers of anti-corrosion protection are an absolute godsend.

Yardmaster Prefab Metal Garages

A Yardmaster metal garage is an equally robust garden building. Constructed from zinc-plated steel and supplied with a 15-year manufacturer’s guarantee, it also boasts Yardmaster’s unique 7 layers of protection.


Other notable features include translucent roof panels; pad-lockable, hinged double doors; and the other general selling points seen with Yardmaster’s sheds.

Yardmaster Best Buy 6

With ample space for a car, and extra garden storage to boot, this prefab garage is expertly constructed from zinc-plated steel and supplied with a fantastic 15-year anti-rust guarantee.


Translucent roof panels provide plenty of natural light, allowing this metal garage to also be used as a garden workshop. At over 7-feet tall and with ventilation along the ridge and eaves, it offers plenty of headroom and optimal garden storage conditions too.
