Detailed scrollwork on the porch of this playhouse potting shed brings a playful touch to the structure. Heart-shape cutouts in the shutters, a Dutch door with lace curtains, and a white wicker chair complement the casual country look.
This tool shed matches its exuberant cottage garden surroundings. Architectural details such as the scalloped fascia, clapboard siding, window boxes, windows with lace curtains, and weather vane make it the perfect focal point for the garden.
Look for ways to incorporate your shed into your landscape. Here, a steeply pitched roofline on a simple garden shed echoes the angles found in the triangular raised beds and birdhouse. Even the picket fence behind the Adirondack chairs carries the theme through with pointed peaks.
A flagstone path leads through this potting shed, making for easy access to the tools stored on the wall. Peeling paint and wide-plank construction provide rustic charm.
Gothic arched windows add to the antique feel of this garden shed. Stamped-metal roofing and hanging planters on the fence repeat the arched shape. A row of boxwoods brings order and definition to the entry garden.
Peeled hemlock porch columns, random-width pine siding, and a durable metal roof turn this shed into a rustic retreat. The shed rests on a concrete block foundation surrounded by stacks of stones, giving the building a sense of permanence and providing an attractive way to level the shed and disguise the change in slope.
The porch and entry door of this garden shed face downhill, providing a commanding view of the garden. Lattice surrounding the base of the porch offers a handsome backdrop for plantings.
A steep faux-slate roof and king post porch gable lend Tudor style to this potting shed. Oversize metal false door hinges are in keeping with the shed’s Tudor references. A bench adds intimacy to the front porch.
A playful profusion of flowers, whimsical sculptures, and found objects set the tone for a practical but lighthearted approach to gardening. An ample storage shed with a sun-drenched potting-shed annex makes maintaining the garden a snap.
Join the green roof craze by growing sedum and other succulents on top of your garden shed. The succulents keep the shed cooler, soak up rainwater, and brighten the garden with their colorful foliage and blooms.
When you create a garden shed design, you should remember that an attention-grabbing garden shed does more than de-clutter your garden. It can create a comfortable work space, provide a backdrop for prized plants, or deliver a destination where you can relax and entertain friends.
