How Do I Hide My Garden Shed?
How to Hide a Garden Shed
Nothing is as beautiful or astonishing as nature, and the garden is the perfect place to enjoy its delights on a daily basis.
However, an attractive garden requires a lot of practical effort and the tools to keep it in tip top shape. Therefore, you will more than likely have a shed stuck somewhere in your garden.
Even if a shed is shiny and new, we don't want it to be the main feature of the garden. So, we need to hide it somehow.
Here are four key methods you can use to hide your shed: concealment, distraction, improvement, and replacement.
Concealing a Shed
There are a few ways to screen your shed, such as trees, shrubs and trellis. Assuming you don't want to fence your shed in, trellis panels, adorned with climbing plants, are perhaps the speediest garden screen. A few fence posts, some trelils fencing and a season or two for the climbing plants to grow... the sight of that shed will soon be a distant memory.
You can choose to place the trellis as a panel away from the shed or actually attach it to the shed so the plants ramble across the building.
Distracting from a Shed
Distraction is an interesting one. Consider using a sense other than sight.
How about sound? If one was to approach an ugly outdoor shed and hear the soothing sound of a water feature in the nearby corner of the garden, in which direction would your attention be drawn?
Or perhaps use scent and sight combined? An abundance of planters in front of the shed, all overflowing with beautiful scented plants will certainly steal the limelight from the shed.
Improving it with a Shed Makeover
Why not give your shed a makeover?
Paint it an interesting colour. Fix that roofing felt or why not invest in SkyGuard - this innovative shed roof covering will never tear or rip; apply it once and it's guaranteed to last for 20 years at least. Hang a few hanging baskets and it will be like new.
Replacing a Shed
Ahh, replacement, you say - I wondered when they were going to try and sell us something expensive. It’s certainly true that Buy Sheds Direct boasts a superb range of garden sheds, but have you ever considered purchasing an outdoor store to replace your old shed instead? These invaluable little garden storage facilities are spacious, secure, but tend not to be as tall as traditional sheds, making them far less obtrusive.
