The Ultimate Shed Buyers Guide for 2022
So you've finally decided to buy a shed and begin your (hobby/work/storage) life in one. It's not as simple as just shouting 'I want a shed' and the order is placed. There's various things to consider such as: where will I put my lovely new shed? What should I buy with it? Will anyone steal my lawnmower?
While it may appear like we're stating the obvious, there are many questions that need answering before you jump into purchasing your dream shed...
Let's be honest, who doesn't want their own sanctuary space?
This is why we have produced this article - to help shed buyers in answer any questions they may have when purchasing their own shed, so without further ado... let us begin!
Remember how I said everybody wants a space of their own? Well, this means that you should find the right location to put your shed long before you purchase it. If it's going on your property, there's various ways to go about this: do you want it beside the house or beside the garden? Are there any natural boundaries such as roads or buildings nearby? What about where you store all of your outdoor tools and equipment (the garage!) – will they need moving back and forth? Don't forget to take note of access such as gates, doors and pavements.
Once you've decided where your shed will go, the next thing to do is measure up the area that it's going to be in. If you're creating a new garden or lawn space then simply ensure that you have enough space for both the shed and possibly some free-standing items such as a potting/flowering table so everything has its own dedicated spot... nobody wants their tools cluttering up the house!
If you already have an established garden or lawn, then measuring up is still necessary but simply ensuring there's enough room around the shed. A good tip is to buy something like stepping stones (they're cheap!) and place them between your indoor storage area and the shed so they act as a pathway to avoid damaging your lawn.
Last but not least, make sure it's level. Yes I know this is obvious too but if you don't want your mower churning up the lawn every time you go out to cut it then make sure there are no slopes or hills where you plan on placing your new shed! You'll also want to take into consideration any natural obstructions such as trees that may affect where you place your new garden building (if possible) – nobody wants shade over their sanctuary space!
When buying a shed, consider how much space it actually needs. Most of us enjoy gardens with our friends or family members but what happens when we all have our own hobby? If you want to buy a shed that is suitable for all your interests then perhaps consider buying something like
we've suggested some alternative options below:

Finally, it's time to choose the shed you want! Like most people out there, you're probably going to have your eye on something that meets all of your needs and more. There are many different types of garden sheds available on the market these days which is great news for anyone looking to get their hands on one! Some popular ones include:
- wooden garden sheds - this type of storage solutions are some of the most durable options available so if security or durability is a high priority for you then these may be an ideal choice -
- plastic sheds - offer great value for money while not compromising on both security and durability. Just another option for those who are looking to buy a shed –
- metal garden sheds - these storage solutions offer superior strength which makes them ideal for heavy tools such as strimmers or power drills – great if you need to put your best foot forward!
In summary, make sure the space is suitable for the size of shed you want to purchase and keep in mind any potential obstructions that may affect where you place it! Don forget to measure up beforehand so you know the exact dimensions of the garden sheds you will be considering. We hope this guide was helpful and thank you for reading :)
