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 Shed

Creating Your Perfect Space
A 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
While it’s important to make your potting shed feel like a special home away from home, there are some tools to make sure you have on hand to make your life easier.
Keeping your gardening tools tidy will not only make your shed look more attractive, it will make it easier for you to find what you need. Adding a tool hanger to your shed is a great way to ensure organization.
Adding shelving is another great way to increase organization to your area. You can keep tools or even pots on the shelves. It saves you space, too.
