    Garden sheds come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit all gardens and storage requirements. It's important when buying a garden shed to know exactly how you are going to use it and choose the correct size. The main types of shed available are Apex sheds, Bike sheds and Storage sheds; each available in wood, plastic or metal. as a general rule of thumb, always go for the biggest shed you can afford and have space for, as nothing is more frustrating than buying and building a shed that's too small. The most popular garden shed sizes in the UK are 6'4 feet and 8'6 feet sheds, but there are many other sizes available.

    Garden Shed Guide

    A few years back most sheds in the UK were made from cheap pine which was preservative treated for the weather. But these sheds, although popular as they were cheap and easy to build, tended to let drafts and moisture in so were not ideal for all purposes, though fine just for storing the lawn mower plus a few garden tools. If your budget can stretch a bit further then a better quality shed made from tongue and grove or overlay cladding will last a lot longer. These sheds do a much better job in terms of keeping out the moisture and well cared for examples should last 30 years or more.

    Metal sheds come in a large array of sizes and are becoming very popular, with the only real downside being condensation in winter which can promote rust if water cannot drain away. But they are quick and easy to assemble, rodent proof, fire proof and offer good security. Plastic Sheds are also becoming popular and are cheap compared to wooden and metal sheds, they are generally maintenance free and offer good weather resistance. They are really easy to assemble being very light but security is usually not as good.

    Garden Playhouses Overview

    Playhouses area great solution if you want children to spend more time outdoors enjoying the garden and experiencing nature, rather than being glued to a computer or TV screen! There is a wide selection of high quality wooden playhouses for children of different ages on sale and they come in various sizes to suit all kinds of gardens.

    Having a playhouse will not only give your children an extra place to play, but will encourage them to spend more time outdoors and to enjoy creative play. But safety is paramount so a garden playhouse must be sturdy and secure, with good structural integrity. For complete peace of mind, choose playhouses that are tested and approved for the EN-71 European safety standard for toys. This means that windows are glazed with styrene, which is a 100% shatter proof material, plus they have a 12mm gap between the doors and their frames, to prevent little fingers being trapped. It is also a good idea to place your playhouse in a position where it can be easily seen from the house for easy supervision of younger children.

    Installation of Sheds and Playhouses

    After you have chosen the best type of playhouse to suit you and your children, the next choice is whether you want to build it yourself or have it installed by a professional. Playhouses are normally delivered in sections ready to assemble, so are within the capabilities of anyone reasonably competent with DIY, however they can be awkward to assemble for one person, particularly if windy, in addition you will need to provide a secure base for wooden playhouses to ensure they do not rot with ground damp. Many garden specialists and even handymen offer a shed or playhouse installation service offering safe and quick assembly, plus they will also clear away any excess packaging for you.

    Prices vary according to the size of the shed/playhouse, but it should not be too expensive and may be worth it for many to avoid the hassle of building yourself!
