A potting shed is an important tool for any gardener, and often becomes the focal point of your backyard area. It’s where you pot plants, and often a place to relax or escape from inclement weather. There are some creative ways to create the perfect potting shed to give you a beautiful garden escape to use year-round.
Picking the Right Potting ShedWhen it comes to picking the shed for your garden, you’ll want to choose something with a small footprint, but big value. You want a durable space for every season with plenty of room to store your pots, gardening tools, and other odds and ends. After all, this potting shed is going to be your go-to spot every day you plant. ShelterLogic's Shed-in-a-Box is a smart choice when you’re looking for a shelter that will withstand the elements.

Creating Your Perfect SpaceA potting shed can be just as unique as your garden. Because it’s a space you call your own, many gardeners decide to make it feel like an extension of their home. Better Homes and Gardens suggests adding benches, and other decorations around your potting shed to give it a homey feel. Fine Gardening recommends adding character with a bench inside with a clock, a journal, or anything else you might need to make your shed feel like a getaway! Here are some other ideas to decorate your shed:
- Place a birdhouse nearby the shed
- Plant shrubs outside and create a beautiful entrance
