Wooden Garden Sheds
Wood sheds are a classic and popular option for your garden. Not only can you paint them any colour of your choosing, they are weather resistant, generally have a long life and are eco-friendly. That said, it’s worth considering how much sunlight your garden gets before purchasing a wood shed. Indeed, if your garden is fairly damp, your shed could potentially be vulnerable to rotting and mould.
Metal sheds are generally lighter in weight and therefore easier to assemble. In addition to that, it’s a durable material that is difficult to damage, meaning it makes for a structure that can last for a long time. Bear in mind, however, in the hot weather metal sheds can get stuffier than alternative shed materials. If your intention is to have a shed as a workspace, a wooden or plastic shed is a better option.
Plastic sheds, as with metal, are generally low maintenance, easy to clean, attractive and waterproof. Indeed, with a plastic shed there’s no fear of anything placed inside being anything other than perfectly dry.
Shed Size & Shape
Choosing the correct shed size is crucial. Obviously, a large deciding factor is how much space you have to work with in your garden. You’ll also need to consider what you intend to use your shed for and what you will keep in it. For instance, are you planning to use the shed to store a lawn mower and other garden items? Generally, a small shed can accommodate this. However, if you plan to use this space to store additional gardening equipment, furniture and bbqs, then a large shed is a better option. If you plan to turn it into a bike shed, then you may wish to invest in a heavy padlock too.
