The benefits of a garden shed are undeniable but the structure of sheds is often mundane and typical. Be creative. Make your unique garden sheds the standout structure that not only serves utilitarian functions but also becomes the envy of everyone on your block.

Ideas for Unique Garden Sheds

Repurpose Dog Sheds – Use dog sheds to create sheds to store gardening items — whether you have a dog or not. Stage three dog sheds and designate them to store garden tools, pots and gardening tools and equipment.

Plastic Shelf Shed – Use inexpensive plastic shelving units to create an outdoor shed. Use as many shelving units as needed to hold and house garden equipment, planters and plants themselves. During summer months you can leave the shelves uncovered to pot and transplant flowers and vegetables. During rainy periods you can cover the shelf shed with tarp or heavy plastic to protect stored items.

Tee-Pee Greenhouse – Create an outdoor shed by using a triangle pyramid concept to create the structure for the shed. Use galvanized steel or PVC piping to create the structure. Attach heavy-strength plastic to cover the tee-pee. Use the shed to house garden tools, equipment and to create your own small greenhouse.

Unique Garden Sheds: Creative Uses

Garden sheds can be unique not only from their construction shapes, but also how you use them in daily. Below are some ideas of unique uses of garden sheds.

An Outdoor Playhouse – Garden sheds are a great option for children’s playhouses because they can be enjoyed at any time of the year. In the winter, sheds can be insulated to keep cold air out and provide children with a unique space where they can use their imagination. When spring and summer roll around, sheds provide kids with a shaded area to rest and play house on a beautiful sunny day.

Add On to Garden Shed for Extra Storage – A patio provides both extra storage and, if it is covered, respite from the sun. When attaching a patio to a garden shed, there are a few options you can consider to make the shed appear to be designed for both beauty and use.

  • Extended Roof- Using an attractive extended roof is an opportunity for creativity and personal style. While you can use steel for your roof extension so it will easily match the shed, you can also take the opportunity to be creative and use other materials like wood or plastic to cover the patio.
  • Storage Benches- Storage benches are an excellent option for your add-on patio. These provide both seating space for your family to gather and storage for garden shed items.
  • Attached Shelving- If you need more space for storage on the patio attached to your shed, consider installing attached shelves to the pillars holding up your extended roof.

Use as A Workshop – There are many different household projects that need to be done, and some can be incredibly messy. If you don’t want the mess in your home why not turns your garden shed into a workshop and leaves the mess outside your home? Because sheds generally have no carpeting or tile, any mess you make can easily be cleaned up and your workshop space maintained. Because many sheds have large doors and windows, the space is also a well-ventilated option for projects that may produce fumes or excess dust.

Garden sheds may normally be used for storage of garden tools, potting soil, and plan fertilizer, but they can be utilized for so much more. Turn your unique garden sheds into a playhouse for your children, an outdoor retreat with hidden storage, or an every-day workshop so you can truly use and enjoy your shed.
