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.

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 worked with Sheds-unlimited over the phone. They explained to me how to prep the site. Took about 1 day to level the ground build the base and add the stone.
The Shed showed up as promised in about 20 minutes it was off the truck and in place. What I like the best is everyone knows what they are doing at Sheds-unlimited no messing around or problems. Price was excellent and shed is extremely well built.

Wiring with Sheds unlimited was wonderful! They made the shed buying process so easy seamless. I would highly recommend them! The shed is a very nice quality. I am very happy with my purchase!

Susan Omeara from PA

Great dealing with Sheds Unlimited. Visited the new site and saw the quality of work which was the same in the shed that was delivered yesterday, great. The delivery person was wonderful. Very friendly and knew what he was doing and how to get the shed in place. Dealing with Mark and Austin was so easy. They knew all the answers to the questions I had. I will deal with them if I need another shed.

Kim from Worcester, PA

I overly research purchases. I admit it. This purchase was no different. I spent the last 11 months researching everything from plans, to kits, to build on site, to delivered on site. Yes, it was over a hundred that I looked at finally. Sheds Unlimited delivered the best product at the best price even with the delivery charge. My shed contained no particle board and it matches our house perfectly. Would I recommend? Yes, without hesitation or reservation.

John from Madison, CT

I purchased a 12' by 8' shed with unique specifications and it came exactly like we wanted. The service was great and I was treated like a human, not a number. Most of all the shed is high quality and looks great. If you are considering a shed, I would high recommend Sheds Unlimited. By the way, my neighbors may be calling you too.

Sheds Unlimited provided great customer service. Due to a number of issues on our end, we needed a longer than typical time for preparation of the site. They willingly worked with us on the timing of the delivery and on-site construction of our new barn-style shed. The crew arrived on time and completed the project in an amazing short time. If you are a cost and quality conscious customer - you will be happy with Sheds Unlimited.

Mary Jones from Baltimore, MD

My shed is wonderful just as I ordered it! The whole experience was a delight. Sheds unlimited staff is organized friendly and helpful. Every inquiry was answered quickly and completely by a friendly voice. My shed was delivered even though we were in the middle of a very heavy rain storm. From the time of truck pulling up to truck leaving was only 45 minutes. Driver was excellent just like the rest of my experience. I looked other places and did not have near as pleasant experience or feel I was getting as good of a product as I did at sheds unlimited. Price was better with better look and quality.

Michael from Red Lion, PA

Great company, quality merchandise and excellent service. Thank you!
