Sheds and summerhouses – our pick of the best

10 images

Sheds and summerhouses are an invaluable addition to any garden. Whether it’s a wooden tool shed placed in a corner for garden storage, or a summerhouse designed as a retreat from the main house, it’s easy to see why these garden buildings are so popular.

If your focus is practical storage, choose from a wide range of sheds including traditional wood, plastic and metal styles. Spacious sheds are perfect for families with lots to store – including garden furniture, tools, the lawnmower, bikes and DIY equipment. For tiny gardens there are also small sheds for sale that are perfect for garden essentials. While a shed serves the storage needs of gardening enthusiasts, summerhouses are a great place to relax and while away warm summer days with a good book. For classic country style, opt for a beautiful painted wooden summerhouse. Some designs can be fitted with wall and floor insulation, heaters and electrical sockets to make it possible to use the space throughout the year. Take a look at our selection of garden buildings to make the most of your outside space this summer.
