Garden Sheds

Yes, you absolutely should consider purchasing a garden shed! Not only are they highly affordable, but owning one will open up a whole world of possibilities. Owning a shed will enable you to clear out the clutter in your house, garden and garage - with the ability to store everything in your brand new garden shed.

You may also be able to pursue hobbies that you previously couldn’t, with the space offered by a garden shed allowing you to take on projects which may have otherwise been made difficult by a lack of space.

We offer a number of excellent garden sheds throughout our range.

Here are the four garden sheds we believe to be the absolute best we sell:

There are definitely some things worth considering before you make a garden shed purchase. We've listed some of the most crucial ones below:

  • Price vs. Quality - Trying to find the equilibrium between being drawn to the cheapest price and investing in a more expensive, yet equally higher quality shed can be a tricky balancing act. We suggest going for a shed built with better materials at a slightly higher price, so you can be safe in the knowledge of getting an excellent product.
  • What type of shed you want - Wooden, metal and plastic sheds each have their own unique advantages. You can make this decision depending on what you plan to use your shed for, as well as your own personal stylistic preferences.
  • Location in your garden - Aside from the size of your garden, you should also think about how you intend to use your shed. You don’t want to place it in an inaccessible area, or one which receives little natural sunlight.

There are three main types of garden shed: Wooden, metal and plastic. Each of these offers a unique set of advantages, depending on your wants and needs.

Wooden sheds can complement almost any garden and are available in both traditional and modern designs. Thanks to being made of galvanised steel, metal sheds are highly durable and sturdy, making them ideal as a secure storage unit or DIY workshop. Plastic sheds are similarly strong but also lightweight, meaning they can be comfortably moved around, in order to find your preferred garden position.

Undoubtedly the most popular type of garden shed, wooden sheds have been kept in gardens for years, thanks to their multi-purpose and classically pleasing nature. Listed below are some the most important wooden shed advantages:

  • The traditional aesthetic that a wooden shed provides is unmatched by other shed types.
  • Wooden sheds are multi-purpose. Depending on size, they can just as easily be used as a DIY workshop than as a storage area.
  • Highly customisable. Wooden sheds can be painted and modified to suit your personal preferences.

Metal garden sheds have seen a serious rise in popularity over recent years, thanks to their sturdy nature. Here are some of the best reasons to buy a metal shed:

  • A budget-friendly, affordable option.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • Excellent levels of durability and difficult to damage, making metal sheds ideal for heavy-duty DIY.
  • Virtually maintenance free.

Plastic sheds are the ideal choice for those seeking a low maintenance, yet highly practical garden shed. Here are a few of plastic sheds biggest advantages:

  • Highly portable and easy to build - you’ll have little difficulty in moving a plastic shed from one area of your garden to another.
  • Long lasting and durable, thanks to the impermeable nature of plastic.
  • Multi-functional.

This depends on several factors, such as how you intend to use your garden shed, your budget and the space available in your garden. If you plan to use your shed as a means of storage, then a small shed - starting from 4x6 - will be more than sufficient. If your desire is to create a workspace then something bigger, such as our Expert Reverse Apex Workshop, available in 20x10, would be sensible.

Be sure to bear the size of your garden in mind when choosing your shed, as this is the most important determining factor.

There are a number of steps which can be taken when fighting back against rotting wood:

  • Keep your garden shed off the ground - preferably on a rigid foundation. Having a shed above the ground will prevent rain sitting against the outside walls.
  • Treating wood, as this provides extra resistance against rotting.
  • Having your garden shed in a sunny location will enable heat to dry up any moisture after periods of rainfall.
  • Spray water-repellent sealers onto the wood. The more frequently you do this, the better!

Though it does represent a further monetary outlay, a high-quality shed base or foundation can add years-upon-years to the lifespan of your shed, making it something which is definitely worth considering. A dry and level foundation for a garden shed - which can be concrete, paving slab or bearers - is crucial when trying to give your shed the longest life possible!
