Small garden sheds

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Small sheds Garden Buildings Direct.
A 6 x 4 shed is a perfect size shed for a small garden! It’ll be big enough to fit the mower, some gardening tools, a bag of kids garden toys and loads of other stuff. Put a shelf up high for storing plant pots and tubs of weed killer or plant food. Put hooks on the wall for hanging tools. Keep as much stuff off the floor as possible so you can always get in and out. Use the back of the door too! If you’re going to keep lots of tools and small stuff in it then it makes sense to add some sort of storage – so look out for an old chest of drawers or cupboard! You can look on freecycle for this sort of thing!
A tidy shed means you can always get at what you need! You can also get more stuff in if you’re organised! Add extra shelves near the door but high up so it won’t interfere with anything you leave underneath!

How to pick the right shed

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

shedIt must be this wet and cold autumn weather that’s making me think of nice cosy sheds and how essential they are for a gardener. You need somewhere to keep all your tools safely away from the rain, the kids and anyone who might take them away!
A shed provides a place to keep your allotment essentials too including your bags of soil conditioners, plant pots, seed trays, tools and slug pellets. It’s a place to lock so that kids don’t mess with sharp tools or dangerous weedkillers or pesticides.
It can also be a place to retreat to when the weather is suddenly bad.
On our allotment site there’s a limit on shed size due to some planning rules that were put in place when the site was opened.
You can buy this great shed – 8′ x 6′ (2.37×1.79m) Windsor Overlap Double Door Apex – for only £197.99 Including VAT & Delivery. This is a great size shed, perhaps suited best to a garden where you need lots of storage for the kids bikes, or a lawnmower; or maybe on the allotment where you need to store a wheel barrow as well. There’s almost certainly room for a chair in there too. Great value shed offering good space and a great price.
If you need a smaller shed they have a good range and you can sort by type of shed and size making it easy to find just what you’re looking for. Their delivery service is free too and there’s even an installation service available too. If you’ve got room for a bigger shed, always buy one as big as possible as you will find it fills itself very easily!
