If you’re thinking about upgrading your outside space, you may be considering a garden shed.
Garden sheds not only add much-needed storage space for your gardening gear – the right shed can make an attractive addition to most garden spaces.
But how do you know which type of garden shed is right for you? From the shape, size and style to material and cost, there’re a lot of things to think about when choosing a garden shed.
In this handy guide, we provide a rundown of the most popular garden sheds available.
A popular choice for many homeowners is a plastic shed.
The good news about plastic is that it requires little to no maintenance, other than a hose down every now and then to keep it clean.
Plastic sheds are super easy to build, too, and can sometimes be erected by one person depending on the size of shed you go for.
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, a metal shed might be the perfect choice for you. Metal sheds offer the same benefits as regular sheds (long-lasting, weather-resistant and robust) and come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on your needs yet are often much cheaper than those built with natural materials.
One thing to bear in mind, however, is that while metal sheds require no maintenance or treatment, they will begin to rust over time.
By far the most popular style of the shed, wooden sheds are a long-lasting, cost-effective and practical solution for many homeowners.
Wooden sheds are often built with treated wood, designed to withstand the elements. If you opt for untreated wood, be prepared to varnish it yourself every couple of years to ensure it weathers well.
Wooden sheds are typically square in shape with a tall roof, to provide extra storage for those all-important garden tools.
This type of shed tends to be one of the most affordable options on the market, and are delivered flatpack – in most instances, you’ll be required to erect the shed yourself – a perfect time to use those tools!
