Shed landscaping ideas are important because your shed is a prominent part of your yard or landscape. Whether it’s used for storing gardening tools or it’s a she-shed, you want it looking good and not be an eyesore that makes you cringe every time you look at it.
At Golden State, we’ve designed, built, and delivered hundreds of sheds since we started our business. We’re often asked about shed landscaping ideas, and we’re happy to offer some suggestions. Here are five ideas that you can use to spruce up your shed.
Make Your Shed Your Own
- Put some pavers out in front. Pavers not only are useful for walking on after the rain has stopped falling and the grass is slippery, but they add a nice visual touch as well.
- Add a fresh coat of paint that suits your style. Not only will this help your shed match your yard aesthetic but it can also help with weathering issues. Right now at Golden State you can get free shed painting with the purchase of a shed.
- Add window boxes. It’s amazing how something so simple can make such an impact. They’re not expensive and they’re available in sizes that are perfect for sheds. You can easily install them yourself, and they’ll get even more attractive as they’re weathered. You can also use them to add a fun pop of color to your shed.
- Use the seasons to your advantage. Create an autumn theme with pumpkins and fall leaf decor, or decorate with wreaths and lights for Christmas. You can do the same thing for the other seasons and holidays. Accent your shed landscaping with holiday lighting and add plants that are associated with the season, like chrysanthemums in December.
- Have an attractive walkway leading up to your shed. It doesn’t have to be super long or extravagant, but have your walkway be long enough to feel like walking over to your shed is an event, like walking down a red carpet into your own little get away home. You can even surround your walkway with flowers or a raised vegetable garden. It gives the walkway a nice enclosed feeling and you’ll enjoy the view or vegetables year round.
- Landscape the roof. If your shed is small and in a corner of the yard, there may not be a lot of room for landscaping in front of the shed or to the sides. If this happens to you, think about covering the roof with plants and flowers that can survive year-round. This can transform a simple shed into one of the focal points of your yard.
