Product Overview

This vertical utility shed is a bit on the smaller size, making it perfect if you just need to store your tools until the next time you use them. It has nice grooves that are perfect for adding your own shelves. Even with shelves, you still have room in the front for some taller tools, like your new shovel. With 20 cubic feet, you’ll have just enough room for your tools, and it won’t take up too much space.

This vertical shed features has a nice, faux wood appearance that is ideal for a nice, outdoorsy look. The double steel used guarantees durability, and that the weather won’t get inside. On the downside, this small shed is small. You’re going to need to take some extra precautions if you live in an area that is known for windstorm.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

Putting cinderblocks in the bottom is a common idea, but this can take up valuable space inside of the shed. Instead, we recommend that you put this shed in a nice, cozy area that won’t get a lot of wind to make sure it doesn’t get blown over and damaged.

Overall, the customers are happy and you will be too. Just because you don’t have a lot of space doesn’t mean that your backyard has to be cluttered. Instead, picking up a small vertical shed like this one is the perfect storage solution to make your home, or backyard, look neater than ever before. It’s also one of the more affordable sheds.

Product Overview

This shed is durable and sturdy. If you’re looking for a shed that can be assembled both quickly and easily, this one is it. The snap together style is easier than most other sheds, and the most inexperienced novice will be able to assemble this with no problem.

The only downside to this shed is one that is found in most horizontal sheds: the water and snow will collect on the top, leaving many to wonder whether it is truly waterproof or not.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

For the most part it is, but there may be a crack here and there where water will get in through the lid. This shed is also great if you’re looking for something a bit more basic to store things in. It has no windows, or any of the other frills that other sheds may come with. Instead, this shed focuses on being both sturdy and functional.

The dimensions are accurate, giving you the option to see if this shed is what you’re looking for. Homeowners use this shed to store trash in so that animals don’t get into it, store their lawnmowers, pool toys and much more. You’ll never have to worry about the weather getting in this durable shed.

Product Overview

Vertical storage sheds are the perfect choice for anything that is tall or long, like garden tools. You can put your potting soil on the ground and still have plenty of room to tuck your rake and shovel in there too.

The durable material used for this vertical storage shed ensures that it is weather proof, it won’t dent, and it won’t leak. You will be able to sleep better at night knowing that your new garden tools aren’t going to rust due to the weather.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

17 cubic feet of space is more than enough for your garden tools, and you can purchase shelves if you have more smaller items that you would like to store. This storage shed is the perfect thing for you if you need a smaller shed to store a few things in.

On the downside, the shelves take up a bit of space, so you’ll only have room for a few tools in the front after putting them in. This shed is also a lightweight shed, so it can get knocked over easily by the wind if you are not storing too many things inside.

Rubbermaid used a high-quality material to make sure that you have a sturdy vertical storage shed that will last for years to come. If you need a few extra shelves or somewhere to store something smaller, such as garden supplies or longer tools, this vertical storage shed will meet your needs perfectly fine. If you live in an area that is known for high winds, make sure that you put the shed in a nice tight area so that it doesn’t get blown over.

Product Overview

This small storage shed is the perfect size for storing your outdoor cushions or your pool toys. The neutral colors guarantee that it will look wonderful no matter what color your house or garage are. The horizontal design means that you can easily open the lids to access the things in storage, and you have the option of purchasing a lock for additional security.

You won’t have to worry about your outdoor cushions getting wet, or about the neighborhood kids taking them when they are in the mood for some mischief.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

You also won’t have to worry about breaking your back as you put this shed together. The easy assembly is one of the things that customers love. It does not come with a lock, so customers that want that extra security measure will have to purchase one separately.

A few customers were dissatisfied with one simple thing: it doesn’t come with shelves. If you’re in the market for shelves, they can easily be purchased. You can also measure the area, and then stop by your local Home Depot when they aren’t busy. Most locations will be more than happy to cut the wood for you.

If you’re in the market for a nice little storage shed to store a few pool supplies or a snow blower inside, this one will do just fine. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s functional and sturdy, just like a shed should be.

4/5 by Shed Mastery

Product Overview

This multipurpose horizontal shed is great for anywhere. If you need some storage in the yard, or in the garage, this storage shed is what you’re looking for. The horizontal design is ideal for storing everything from pool toys to a few garden supplies. The double doors make it easier to store larger, long items, and it’s easier to open to get things back out. Customers enjoy the doors that are located on the front as well.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

Open up the top lid and the front doors to store everything easily, and then close them until you need to get out the pool toys again. This shed is also great for keeping outdoor cushions dry when they are not being used. The flat lid prevents weather and rain from getting into your new storage shed.

If you need a large storage shed to turn into a workshop or to store all of your tools in, this probably isn’t the best choice. There is not an option for shelves. Instead this shed is similar to a larger version of a deck box. If you need a cross between a deck box and a shed to store your pool chemicals, outdoor cushions, etc. in, this is just what you need to keep everything safe and dry.

4.5/5 by Shed Mastery

Product Overview

This shed was designed to be both sturdy and convenient. The sliding lid and opening doors make it easy to walk in this horizontal styled shed to retrieve your tools, or to get on your riding mower. The nice shades of brown will look nice in any yard, regardless of other decorations or lawn ornaments.

If you currently live in a neighborhood that states that you cannot have a shed that is visible from the street, this one will work perfectly.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

It’s tall enough to provide the storage that you need, but short enough that no one will know it’s there except for you. This compact shed provides plenty of space to store a riding mower, an adult bike and kid’s bikes, and even your pool supplies. Use it as some extra storage or a pumphouse for your pool.

If you must comply with H.O.A. restrictions regarding your new shed, then this one is just what you’re looking for. It’s short enough that you won’t be able to see it over a privacy fence, durable enough to last, and large enough to hold the essentials.

Product Overview

Rubbermaid gave you everything that you want in a smaller shed with this one. The durable material is waterproof, weather resistant and even dent proof, something that you won’t find in metal sheds.

The short height is perfect if you want a smaller shed that won’t seem like a miniature tower in your yard. Instead of looking too tall, this short, adorable shed will be the perfect height and size for all your needs.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

If you need a smaller shed that will fit perfectly in your small yard to hold a few things, this Rubbermaid shed is an excellent choice. If you need to store larger items, another shed would be more appropriate.

Product Overview

This nice vertical shed has the look of a high-quality kitchen cabinet with the durability of an outdoor shed. It’s made of plastic, so you don’t have to worry about the wear and tear that comes with wooden sheds, or the rust that will eventually happen to a metal shed.

This lightweight shed can be assembled by two people with tools that you probably already have around the house. There isn’t a lot of space there, but that just makes it perfect if you have limited space and need somewhere to store your garden tools.

Pros and Cons

Pros Cons

Features

The tall height makes this shed ideal for storing long handled tools, and there are plenty of accessories available to customize the interior of the shed with pegboard or shelves.

On the downside, the shed does require two people to assemble. This can be inconvenient if you’re the only one home, and there won’t be a lot of space available in the front after you install shelves. There will be room to store a few long-handled tools, but that’s about it.

If you’re in the market for a smaller shed to hold a few things that won’t break the bank, you’ve just found it. This nice little shed is plastic, but it’s durable. You may need to put some cinder blocks inside of it or bolt it down to a foundation if you live in an area that is known for wind storms, but that’s all you’re going to have to worry about after you purchase this shed from Rubbermaid.

Pros and Cons

The skylight in the middle of the roof and the country appeal are what set this shed apart from the others. If that is the look that you want, this shed is it.

4/5 by Shed Mastery

Product Overview

This shed requires a bit more knowledge than a basic shed, but if you can read directions, you can put it together. A few customers did complain about the instructions requiring some handyman knowledge, so it may not be the best idea for novices. Other than that small downfall, this shed is great for anyone that would like a gorgeous shed to store their things in, to turn into a backyard getaway, or to use as a small workshop.
