3 Terrific Landscaping Around a Shed Ideas

Landscaping around a shed is a great idea when you are trying to enhance the look of your backyard and shed. Many more people seem to notice a shed when it has landscape work done to it. There are plenty of landscape designs you can do around your shed but here we will only talk about three of them. Adding a concrete design to surround your shed, a mulch and grass combination, and a garden landscape around shed.

Concrete shed landscaping can add a great and authentic look to your home. Typically surrounding an outdoor pool house, a concrete landscape design is a modern way to landscape a shed. Not interested in a concrete landscape? What about a concrete foundation? A concrete foundation gives you a concrete pad the shed will sit on with an option of a different landscape design.

Adding mulch to your shed landscaping design adds a great natural feel to it. Any typical backyard storage shed can have a mulched landscape wrapping around their shed. You can also add a ramp under the doorway to stay clear of the mulch when loading or unloading the shed!

Adding a garden to your shed landscape can be a great idea to enhance the looks of it. The combination of mulch, flowers, and concrete stones complement each other greatly for a clean and unique look as seen on the left. Don't settle for a standard landscape when you can get the combination of all in one with a garden landscape.

How to landscape around a shed?

Landscaping around a shed can be simple but also very difficult. Landscaping your shed may require a professional if it is a bigger job involving more than the shed, or if it involves more material. However, simple mulch can be done at home by yourself.

If you decided you don't want to do the shed landscaping, you may look online for a professional who can do it for you. There are tons of companies who would be willing to complete this for you including Willow Gates Landscaping who is a local in Berks County, PA. Finding the right company that you trust is a big part of a project like this, make sure to shop around before deciding on the company who will landscape your shed.

10 Tips to Improve Your Shed Landscape

  1. Cut plastic strips 2.5-3 feet wide and place it around the Amish Backyard Structure or Prefab Car Garage on your property. The plastic will serve to keep down any sort of growth that might push through the mulch.
  2. Add Mulch 3-4 inches thick on top of the plastic keeping things clear around the door areas. And be sure not to pile it against the wooden siding on the building! Doing this could hold in moisture and cause rot. Leave a bit of air space to keep your building dry and safe.
  3. Create a swirl or a wider mulch area in some places to avoid an overly formal look. In the swirl, you can place your grill, add a rusty bench or plant bushes and plants.
  4. Place 2-3 evergreen bushes at the corners. The evergreen should be sized in proportion to the size and height of your Amish Backyard Structure. For a standard economy Amish Outdoor Structure I would recommend a 3′ tall evergreen. Be careful that you do not purchase one that will grow to 5-6 feet.
  5. Add some colored plants and other greenery along the length of your Amish storage structure and around the gable end. Plants will color add a very nice look to your Amish structures and to your backyard.
  6. Buy flower boxes for the windows on your Amish Backyard Structure and plant hanging flowers in the boxes. Just be aware that they must be watered regularly due to a limited soil in the flower box.
  7. Find an old wagon or a milk carton or some other antique and incorporate it into the landscaping. Fill the wagon with dirt and add plants that hang down over the sides.
  8. Create potted plant arrangements and set them in the mulch or on a stone paver driveway. These can work great between and beside the garage doors on Amish Garage Structures.
  9. Place a clock on the Amish outdoor structure, or a birth bath, a birdhouse or a hanging light in your landscaping to add more charm and color.
  10. Lay some patio pavers in an area of the landscaping and add an outdoor table and chair set for better looks and a cozy place to hang out.

I congratulate the entire crew of Sheds Unlimited for their professionalism, skill, and passion. Ben did an excellent job in completing the order and providing critical information. James expertly coordinated the pre-production and delivery ahead of schedule. The construction team of John and Matthew were dedicated and extremely proficient in their tasks in erecting the building. Due to rain the team was forced to make a second trip and enthusiastically finished the construction. The completed 24' by 16' building looks marvelous. The Sheds Unlimited crew can be proud of their efforts, and I am absolutely delighted to have acquired their services. I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Awesome company - so easy to work with in ordering my new shed. The shed was built with quality and durability. It should last me a long, long time!

James LaGarde from Laurel, DE

Excellent job by everyone at Sheds Unlimited. From the design phase with Mark and Delmar to plans and scheduling with Kyle and John. Everything went exactly as planned and scheduled, which is a rarity these days. Any questions or concerns on my 24x36 oversized 3 car garage were answered within minutes not days or weeks. Craftsmanship is A+ and the crew of four workers were second to none working quickly and carefully to keep my already landscaped site prestine. Thank you guys again for a job well done!

The shed was ready on time, delivered, and set up perfectly. I was concerned because the shed was going on a concrete pad but they did an excellent job of installing it. The quality is very good and the new shed enhances our property in the mountains. Thanks for a good job!

Great price, excellent workmanship, very helpful delivery driver! Little mis-understanding on the doors but was quickly and professionally handled! Looking to but another one.

J. S. from Lorton, VA.

Absolutely happy with 12×18 work shop shed. From the first contact with the company to the delivery was flawless. Everyone that works for the company does an excellent job!

Hello Delmar;

Several reasons for this message.
First of all I must say that the entire process of doing business with you and everyone in your company that I have dealt with has surpassed my satisfaction and expectations.
From our first meeting at your office to the many many many phone calls i made to you with questions and/or changes you were always willing to take the time to answer my questions and provide the information that i needed and explained why i could or could not or should or should not do certain things. You always took the time to make sure I understood why or why not.
My site prep and your busy schedule took us to a later date than anticipated but James King along with good weather made it all happen on December 18th.
I told James several times there was no way they could get the truck/trailer to the job site ---but--- 7 a.m. the truck and trailer and three man crew are all on the site which I still don't know how they accomplished.
Speaking of the crew and the construction, myself and the entire neighborhood were beyond impressed. Three young men that are obviously very well beyond their years in knowledge and professionalism. I can't say enough good things about them. To watch them work is a treat. It's like they can read each others minds. They each know what to do, when to do it, and rarely even need to speak to each other. They just work and work and waste no time. They were kind and courteous as well. I was impressed as you can tell, and many neighbors were as well. Please pass on my best wishes to Chris who suffered the fall. Here is an example of what kind of employee he is------as I am driving him to the hospital after his fall we are having a conversation about work and he says "I love my job and this kind of work".
As you can tell I am beyond satisfied but I do have one issue with the building. There is one substantial leak in the roof. It is in the area of the dormer and enters the building in a joint between two sheets of osb very near the dormer. It drips from the roof down to the concrete floor as it is above the open area of the attic floor. I will be doing finish work to the attic area soon and obviously the leak must be repaired prior to that however I do not expect anyone to repair a roof in bad weather but please keep this in mind and handle as soon as safely possible. I was aware of the leak prior to your cashing my final check but felt no need to stop pay and hold back any portion until leak is repaired as I certainly trust you will handle it as soon as safely possible.
Thanks again for everything !

Bill Zaremba from Sugar Notch, PA

We love our new shed! The company was very easy to work with. Good value for the money. The delivery at night in the rain though our tight side yard to the shed pad in the back  and perfectly aligned was amazing.
