Garden sheds are your key to guaranteeing that you have a successful garden. Think about it. If you want to use your bag of soil and find that it is wet with mold on top, obviously, you will not be able to use it. Just like with any project, the right tools are needed for the job. You can’t dig a hole without a nice shovel or post hole digger, and you’re going to need a weatherproof shed to prevent those tools from rusting.

Because of this, you need a shed that will stay dry and guarantee that everything you need will be in the best condition when you open the door, even if it’s a few months after you put away your tools. These nine garden sheds are the perfect options for your new garden shed. There are enough sizes and price ranges available that you can find exactly what you’re looking for in this list of garden sheds.

Product Overview

The first thing you’re going to notice about this shed is the adorable appearance. This quaint shed will look perfect in a cute garden in your backyard. Instead of hiding your shed out of sight, you’ll want to put it right next to your garden for everyone to see.

The next thing you’re going to notice about this shed is the large amount of storage space. You can easily fit a push mower, extra gardening supplies, all your long handled gardening tools and more inside this shed.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons
Stain resistant Lock not included
Rust resistant Delivery professionals get it off the truck, after that, it’s up to you to move the box with dolly
Does not require painting Still have to purchase materials to build a base
Windows and skylight Will need to buy a new blade
Windows and skylight
Interior deadbolt lock
Shelves and pegboard included

 

Features

The double doors are designed to accommodate a lock for additional security, but you will need to purchase your own lock. It comes with quite a few features that many customers enjoy, but it does have its downfalls as well.

Overall, this shed is perfect for just about anything. If you want a shed that looks great, this one is it. It’s got plenty of storage space on the inside, and it’s not an eye sore. The only downside is that you must put quite a bit of time and effort into this shed. It may require two people instead of just one, and it’s more complicated than a simple shed that just snaps together. Per the reviews, it’s well worth the extra effort to put the shed together and build a base.

If you’re in search of a larger shed to hold a riding lawn mower and several other supplies, you want one of the larger sheds on this list.

Product Overview

This garden shed is both aesthetically appealing and convenient. The neutral colors that were used make this shed compatible with any decorating scheme in your garden. The metal roof is designed to give you the look of shingles with the sturdiness of metal.

Because of how versatile this garden shed is, it’s perfect no matter what you want to store. It has the space to accommodate a larger item, with plenty of additional space for smaller items. As with everything, there is the good and the bad.

These pros and cons came from our personal opinion on this garden shed, and from real customer reviews about the Suncast Everett Storage Shed.

Keep in mind that some of the items on the cons side were listed because they were frequently mentioned in reviews. This was not just one customer complaining, but at least two. Let’s check out what a few other customers had to say after they assembled their new shed.

Overall, you can wind up with a great shed, but you might have to buy some smaller screws. One customer bought their own screws a size smaller than the ones that come with the shed and it worked perfectly. On the other hand, your shed might come with all the holes perfectly sized.

Keep in mind that this shed might take a day to complete, depending on how many people are building it and how handy you are. It might be worth it though. After it’s finished, this garden shed will hold up in the middle of a hurricane, keep everything inside dry, and last for years.
