To be really effective in your outdoor area — including your yard, lawn and garden — you need to create a space where you can work. Achieving your perfect outdoor space takes a lot of work, so you will need a convenient and efficient place to make the magic happen.
A garden shed is a perfect place to do your early planting, repotting, and planning. It can also be a great place to store all of your yard and gardening equipment and supplies. You are in luck if you already have an existing shed that you can work with.
Your shed should be integrated right into the look of your yard and garden. Don’t be afraid to make your garden shed a focal piece, decorating it with bright colors or trim.

A Workbench Is Essential
Getting your hands dirty is part of the fun of creating and tending a backyard garden. A workbench is an essential part of your garden workspace. Your bench should be counter-height, built using your own height as a guide. You don’t want to end up spending hours bending over a bench that is too low and end up being too sore to get out in the yard. Give yourself enough space to work with repotting plants, organizing seedlings and tending to creative projects.
Garden workbenches that include a sink, storage shelves and a rag rack that can hold clothes or paper towels for clean up jobs are a bonus.
Keep It Neat & Tidy
An organized space is better for productivity. Invest in some storage shelves so that you can get your supplies up off the floor and settled in easy-to-access areas. Avoid creating too much clutter as your space will likely be limited already. However, there are plenty of ideas for making your garden your own paradise even if you’re tight on space.
Use Every Surface
Your garden shed can be used for more than just planting and potting. Save floor space by taking advantage of all of your surfaces for storage. Get your shovels, rakes and brooms up off the floor by mounting rake hooks on the walls. Overhead storage can be used by either mounting shelves in between your rafters or by installing hooks to hang your equipment or even bicycles on.
Your garden shed should provide you with not only a place to store your tools and supplies but also a place of refuge and creation. It can be easy to put together a gardening work center that can help you stay organized and inspired to get out in your perfect garden.
