If you love to garden, a potting shed is a must. And to make your garden and potting shed work together, match the style of the building to the type of garden. For example, here a formal public garden features an oversized potting shed that’s large enough for storage of all garden tools and supplies. Attractive paned-glass windows make this building feel like a small cottage. And the surrounding plantings incorporate it into the landscape.
This do-it-yourself shed uses a 12/12 pitch glazed roof designed to face south for maximum light and solar heat gain. This panelized “sun shed” features ample room for several gardeners to work at once, a potting bench, and space for starting flats of seedlings. A flagstone walkway and raised beds on the sunny south side further warm the spot.
It looks like a tiny house! This elegant garden shed can serve many backyard purposes: potting shed, studio, office, retreat, guest cottage, pool cabana, or storage shed. Installed on a concrete foundation, it features a beautiful mix of architectural details: portico with arch-top window, white shutters, and a cupola. A shed can be used as a garden focal point and to block an unattractive view.
A beautiful architectural landscaping element, this garden shed offers loads of charm with its bracketed, overhanging roof; cedar shingles; and white-painted trim and trellis. It’s practical, too. It features two separate rooms with storage on the left and a potting area on the right.
Situated on a south slope, this shed protects the intensively planted raised bed of vegetables from cold north winds. A shed can create a warm area–called a microclimate–by reflecting sunlight and holding heat in its masonry foundation. The result is a growing area that’s productive weeks longer than other areas of the garden. The skylights are constructed of ¼-inch-thick laminated glass with cedar trim.
Let the sun shine in! This garden shed features a roof made from a collection of wood-framed windows pieced together like a puzzle. The lower walls are clad in clapboard siding. The result is a bright and beautiful place to work on the inside–and a beautiful garden structure from the outside. Vines scrambling along the eaves add vertical foliage and flowers. Acrylic panels cut to size form the angular windows of the gables. A system of levers and handles allows the gardener to open the top windows for ventilation.
