Creative Ideas for a Garden Shed

It’s a great time of year for a green thumb! Don’t you love walking through the grass in your bare feet, or better yet follow the path your tiller makes through your garden? Head on over to your backyard shed; there’s something about the soil that takes a person back to their roots.

Watch those new green onion sprouts push their way through the brown soil. See how high the peas climb on your newly installed wire. Mow the grass. Mulch the flowerbeds. Sure, some of this is hard work, but it’s worth it when you sit in your backyard of an evening and breathe deep.

So, where are you planning to store all your garden tools this summer? Keep hanging them in the garage beside your car and hope they won’t fall and scratch the paint job? Speaking of falling… wouldn’t it be nice to pull into the garage and open your door without having to worry about where Johnny put the mower this time?

Solution… A Garden Shed

You and I both know what some folks think of when they think of sheds. Home Depot. Lowe’s. Cheap metal or plastic sheds that may or may not be standing straight in a few years. Something you can throw your tools in, slam the door and go have dinner.

No character; not to mention plastic looking. All for $400 some dollars?! Some shed this is. It looks more like an old-time phone booth.

Don’t have an extra boat laying around? No problem, build a stick frame and fill it in with logs. A thatched roof completes this shed.


Or maybe you should look at building a garden shed with a green roof… literally!
