We all know how important it is to have a secure outbuilding in which to keep our outdoor stuff, and where you locate your shed needs some careful consideration. What might seem like a great place to put your shed at first, may suddenly block out the afternoon sunshine, and with that in mind, here are some tips for effective shed placement.
- Site The Shed On Level Ground – This is essential, and if you have no choice but to site the shed on an incline, you will have to create a concrete base that is perfectly level. If the shed is not level, doors and windows might be difficult to open, and by using a spirit level when you build the base, you can make sure the base is perfectly level.
- Think Accessibility – The shed is for storing gardening items and therefore, easy access is essential. If, for example, your shed houses the lawnmower, then it should be close to the edge of the lawn if possible, and of course, there should be a pathway that leads right up to the shed door. You could always buy one of those Spanbilt Direct garden sheds for sale by searching online, and with such a large selection of attractive steel units, there is sure to be something that fits the bill.

- Avoid Locating The Shed Under Trees – Not only will the roof collect leaves, there is a real risk of a branch breaking off and crashing onto the shed. If you have little choice, then make sure the tree in question is healthy and prune it back if necessary, as you don’t want tree branches rubbing against the shed. It is tempting to provide permanent shading for the unit, yet modern sheds are designed to take constant sunlight, and if you are lucky enough to have a spot with permanent shade, so much the better.

- Avoid The Perimeter Line – If you put your shed right near your neighbour’s fence, he will likely have something to say about it, and besides, you do want to be able to keep your eye on things, so avoid locating the shed too far from the home. If the shed is on the large side, you should make contact with the local authority, just to check if there are size restrictions for stand-alone structures. There are some great ideas for maximising shed storage space, which will come in handy after the unit is installed. A quick search online will lead you to articles featuring those ideas.
Buying a garden shed is an investment, and if you select a quality steel fabricated shed, then it will last for many years, while also providing a secure storage space for all your expensive items that aren’t kept indoors. If you would like to browse a selection of top-notch garden sheds, an online search is the best way to locate a supplier, and once you have chosen the ideal unit, a secure online payment will see the shed despatched to your home address, leaving you to construct the base and assemble the structure.
