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.

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!

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.

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.

Bob from Nj

From the beginning of the process through the completion of the building I have been consistently pleased and thrilled with the positive attitude and high level of integrity of everyone I have dealt with at Sheds Unlimited. The designer and project managers were patient, thorough and competent. This was a four car garage with space for an apartment upstairs, multiple dormers being built on a stepped foundation. The building was put up in 3.5 days. I was told all along that it would take 3-4 days and I simply did not believe that it could happen that quickly. It did. The three young men who did the actual construction were extremely professional and a delight to have with us for that week. I am completely satisfied with my new garage. It's a dream come true!!

Phil from Washington CT

I purchased a 12x28 Economy Workshop Garage. At first we wanted a pre-fab garage but changed it to a build on site. It took 6 weeks to schedule delivery, but two days before deliver sheds unlimited called to reschedule. After speaking with several representatives, they were able to build my garage a day after the original date. When they arrived, my order was incorrect and missing items. It took another trip to finish. When the representative came to complete the work, he handed my fiancée a reimbursement check. Although my first impression of sheds unlimited wasn’t great, they did everything in their power to correct the situation. The garage looks great and is well built.

Mark,

I just wanted to thank you for the pleasant experience of working with you start to finish purchasing my shed. It took me some time to finally nail down exactly what I was looking for, but taking the time I am more than pleased with my building. You always showed patience and provided me with every option possible and finally we did it! Thanks again!

Gary Ennis from Delmar, Delaware

We traveled to the factory to view and order our MaxiBarn. The entire process was simple and made easy by the sales staff. We ordered exactly what we wanted and had it delivered within a month. We were impressed with the quality workmanship and the delivery was perfect with the mule. The staff at Sheds Unltd. are the best as is there product. Could not ask for more. Great Job!

Edward Bird from Essex,MD

While seeking to obtain a permit, a customer stated she has purchased a shed from Sheds Unlimited. That information has since been priceless. The variety of sheds as well as color selections are awesome! In speaking with Delmar, Nelson and Gideon (pad installer), all have been an excellent resource in responding to questions, offering suggestions and establishing accurate time frames. I am extremely happy with not only the shed but the workmanship that was put into its development. Might I add that the driver/installer of the shed was quite courteous and professional. I just say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Denise from Wayne, PA

Getting a shed from these guys couldn't be easier. We did a rent to own arrangement because we had buildings collapse last winter and needed good, dry storage space and our plan is to build a garage and then return the shed (rent to own is really a month to month rental). The quality and appearance of the shed makes want to pay off the loan and keep it.

Laine Kasdras from Boyertown, pa

I simply can not say enough about the design, purchase, and quality of my shed! The experience was outstanding.  I worked closely with Ben my SU sales and design rep and he was professional and truly accommodating.  The experience started out online and migrated to telephone and email communication, which felt more like I was  purchasing from a fine craftsman in small town USA.   The shed was delivered as scheduled and is a beautiful addition to my yard.  I am considering moving into it rather than store my lawn mower! 

Steven H from Bethlehem, PA

My Architect provided Drawings. Sheds built my 4 car Garage. These guys are amazing, professional and quick. If you need a shed/garage these are the guys to do the Job. Thanks Sheds Unlimited!!!

Jim Silverence from Poughkeepsie New York

They really made it easy. The ordering was taken care of by people who know the products. They worked with us on a delivery for us and two of my neighbors who also ordered. The shed was off the truck and in my yard in 20 minutes. So cool to watch the mule. Thanks to Nelson and all the staff people for a quick delivery and a high quality shed.
