One of the things that sold me on this rental property was the huge backyard. After that? Two garden sheds! Our previous place had no shed. We had a tiny garage, but it housed anything that didn’t fit in the house. Having a shed just for yard and garden tools and equipment is a gardener’s dream. Two sheds? Even better.
A garden shed can be anything from a simple lean-to on the side of your house to a custom built dream shed in a picturesque garden. Every gardener’s needs will be different, and while practicality is of upmost importance, I think we all dream a little when it comes to the perfect garden shed.
What Makes a Perfect Garden Shed?
I asked some of my gardening friends what features would be in their dream garden shed from TESCO… I’ll start!
What to Store in a Garden Shed
One of the nice things about having two sheds is we can use the smaller one for the kids’ outdoor toys and some of the larger items we don’t need access to on a daily basis. This shed holds our tomato cages, large pots, boards and the plastic we use to cover the hoop houses. All that fits on one side and up on a shelf across the top, leaving plenty of room for toys under it.
Our big shed is a double duty as well. The back half is storage. The front half is all about the yard and garden. Here we store the mower, weedeater, wheelbarrow, garden tools, hand tools, small pots and potting soil, and anything else we need constant access to. It is an open space with a wonderful workbench on one side. If we had a tiller, it would be stored in here too, but our city garden is small enough that we turn it once a year with a garden fork.
What would your perfect garden shed be like?
