You are the one who likes to spend most of his/ her free time working in the garden. You are really into planting flowers and bushes. You enjoy the feeling as a landscape designer and changing your yard according to the season. But you have faced the problem that most of your time is spent on searching the needed tool in your garage and looking for a place where you could indulge your hobby.
Calm down, you have simply come to the point of getting a garden shed. And before you start building it take some time to imagine what you want it to be like.
The most important thing about any garden shed is its functionality. Other words, each garden shed should meet its master’s needs. Do you need a place for potting seedlings? Or would you like your shed to be a convenient place for storing your tools and garden supplies? Maybe you need a workshop? Or you might be seeking for a place where you could indulge potting. In this case, a great solution for you is a potting shed. This kind of garden sheds is meant for potting fragile seedlings, and could perfectly fulfill this function.
Think not only about the size of your shed but about things it must have inside. Would you like to have large bins for holding soil, mulch, and other bulky garden materials? Consider weather conditions and the fact that you might want to bring some types of your garden work inside (like re-potting plants, etc.). If this is the case, you might want to plan potting benches and special shelves for pot stores.
Be sure that your garden shed provides you as much space for work as you need. It is not really comfortable and easy to take a garden cart or a lawn mower outside the shed each time you need to reach your potting bench. In this situation, you might not feel any benefits of having the shed. If you want your shed to be rather small, you could think of a wheeled potting bench. It allows a gardener to work outside and enjoy the sunny weather. At the same time, such a bench makes it possible to take it inside the shed and stay dry and warm when it starts raining.
It is obvious that there are lots of variants and possibilities for you to plan a garden shed of your dream. A good idea is to visit those your neighbors who already have garden sheds and to try to learn from their experience.
Using these tips you could build a garden shed which will give you joy and comfort for many years. But it won’t be perfect for you unless you use your own imagination and fantasy.
