As garden architects, we always prefer when storage space for all garden and sport junk is part of the house, having a comfortable entrance. By building a shed we often steal the space of an already small area of the garden.
If you decide to place a shed in the garden, it is better to connect it to another building, such as the garage, sauna, wood house or greenhouse. This is advantageous in terms of space- saving but also in terms of design: one larger building always works better than a few small ones.
The shed should be unobtrusive, ideally, let it grow green using thin ropes and let its roof overgrown with green carpet grass or stonecrop. Everyone thinks it is great if such a building can be tastefully connected with the architecture of the house. Unfortunately, a lot of people explain that instead of a shed they build either a miniature house or something like a gingerbread house.
Check with the local ordinance that regulates the possible size of the shed and its minimum distance from the neighbouring land.
Choose the location of the garden house according to what is put into the shed and how often you need it. If you take your bike or things to work every day from here, it is good to connect the shed with the rest of the garden with a comfortable paved access route. Equip the shed with a practical storage system, lay the cheapest but well-maintained concrete pavement on the floor and establish electrical wiring into the space.
ADDITIONAL STORAGE AREAS
Even if you have a practical garden house, handy storage space right on the terrace is always useful.
It is worth remembering that the storage furniture is in constant contact with the climate, so the inner boxes must be durable. The best suited for us were various ventilated plastic boxes with a nice cover, for example in the form of a bench.
