If an Englishman’s home is his castle, then what does that make his shed? Although my cottage garden is a modest size, I love the fact that it has a lovely little shed tucked away at the bottom. For many people, a shed is simply a place to park the mowing machine, store tins of paint and collect cobwebs – but a shed can actually be so much more!
In my shed, I have a table set up especially to use for various gardening jobs, from planting seeds to re-potting flowers and plants. But sheds do not just have to be functional: they can also be an enjoyable place to relax and escape from it all! I can often be found sat in my shed, with the door open onto the garden, enjoying a cup of tea and reading my gardening books.
For many of us, a shed is a dream; an escape from the noise of the world and a place where we can go and be closer to the garden and the outside world. However, you may also need a shed just as a place to store a bike and some gardening tools. Luckily there are a wide variety of sheds available and even better, they’re not as expensive as you may think!
The ‘classic’ shed, an apex shed offers room for shelves, maybe a potting table and also place to store your tools and equipment. This particular design is less than £200 from Shed Supermarket and offers gardeners the classic shed to start off with.
Pent sheds are tall and narrow – ideal for the side of a house and for storing things like cycles and tools, creating a space to keep things safely.
Dutch Barn Shed
This Dutchbarn shed is an absolute dream! Packed full of space for all sorts of things, this is more like a secret cave to hide away in – perhaps you could even fit a couple of chairs in, next to a pile of well-read gardening books.
So if you’ve been thinking of getting a shed for your garden, why not take a look at Shed Supermarket? There are sheds of all shapes and sizes at competitive prices. Happy shed hunting!
