A wooden garden shed can be a great addition to your home. Especially if you need additional storage, work or living space.  While there are certainly other materials to choose from, a wood shed is generally cost efficient, decorative and popular solution. What makes a wooden garden shed such a great choice?

Let’s look at some of the reasoning behind choosing a wooden garden shed for your home. Even though the wooden garden shed is movable and can be relocated if its properly looked after and many people contact Sheds Direct to move their heavy duty and super heavy duty sheds when they move home. (We do not move sheds these days we’re too busy making quality heavy duty wooden sheds.)

A Wooden Garden Shed from Sheds Direct

Most people who buy a shed from Sheds Direct had other sheds before? The first house I purchased had a large storage shed, at the bottom of the garden. The shed had not been looked after and we had to renovate the shed with new windows, and wood oil.  Unfortunately the shed did not last long due to its flimsy construction.  Metal sheds are fine, too, but you can run into so many problems with them. Of course, you have to keep your new wood shed maintained as well. Metal sheds are easily dented  and it need maintenance including on the roof. Rust, isn’t something you have to worry about with a wooden shed.

It is actually more spacious, more lit up, more aerated and is less scary to venture into if you ask me. It is a great place for him to store his lawn and garden tools. My brother would even do some woodworking and refinishing projects in there. My brother spends hours with his dog in his apex garden shed.


One of the things you want to be on the lookout for is that the wood used to make the shed is pressure treated. (Also referred to as tantalised) This is important when it comes to the durability of the shed. You can imagine why pressure treated wood is good when it comes to lasting durability against the elements.


To me, a wood shed just looks much nicer, too. Maybe I am biased based on my experiences. However, I remember as a kid that a lot of people seemed to have metal or plastic sheds, but that changed as the years passed by. Wood sheds are now, and have been, the definite trend. You have to think about what would look good on your property though.
