Which Material Should I Use for My Garden Shed?

Little by little we are making our current house OURS. It was a lot easier to do projects around the home when we had no kiddos – some days I feel like we won’t ever get ANYTHING done ever again! Of course, hugs from chubby little arms and lots of sticky kisses make up for all that, and in the end, I know we’ll reach the end of our to-do list..eventually!

One thing I’ve been focusing in on recently is our back yard. I’ve been prepping my garden area for planting, a shady area for the girls’ swings, slide and sandbox, and thinking about adding a shed to hold some of the garage overflow.

When purchasing a garden shed there are more things to be taken into consideration than you may think.  They are a big feature of your garden, so it’s essential that you make the right choice for you.

The most-used materials are listed below, as well as pros and cons for each of those materials.  I know I love to entertain in my back garden, and I want to make sure that my guests have a great looking shed to view!

Backyard Dreamin’

We literally have a blank canvas for a backyard right now, which is pretty exciting! But also very…confusing. What to do, what to do?

Our house is on a corner lot, so I think we have a bit more space than others around us in the subdivision, and there’s nothing in the backyard at all…but it’s also not fenced in. Making our two biggest outside projects on “The Master House To-Do List” fencing in the back yard and pressure washing/re-painting the house. And once the fence is up, anything goes! So I’ve been doing a little dreaming. Tell me what ya think of my jumbled ideas!

Let me add that we already have a screened-in back patio that we LOVE. We also have a brick patio off the screened-in patio that will turn into more of an entertainment area (fire pit, etc.). That’s why you won’t see those kinds of ideas in this entry!

On Gardening…

I’m not the best gardener, that’s for sure, but I love the “idea” of gardening. (I know, that doesn’t help much, does it?) But I’d really like to try to make a concentrated effort at least once more before I give up completely, ya know?

Herb garden in sunken pots: I would love to use more fresh herbs in my cooking than dried and bottled, but this is lots of work!
