Landscaping Amish Backyard Structures from Lancaster

Landscaping can majorly improve the looks of your Amish background structures.

Maybe you already have one of those Amish Backyard Structures or are about to purchase a portable structure very soon. If you are looking to purchase one, Sheds Unlimited specializes in creating Amish Structures that will enhance the beauty of your backyard at a reasonable cost (See the many options for backyard Amish Structures we offer).

And while we realize that Springtime is still long ways off, now might be the time to begin thinking about how you can beautify your backyard in just a few months. Sheds Unlimited can only do so much to make your backyard beautiful, but when the sun starts shining and things begin to thaw and warm up a bit, adding landscaping to your Amish backyard structure can make your backyard shine even brighter! A small investment and a Saturday of fun can make an incredible difference in how your Amish Outdoor Structures will fit nicely into the backyard.

10 tips for beautifying your Amish Shed or Garage Structure

  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 bird house 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.

These are just a few of the many ways you can add charm and coziness to the Amish backyard structures on your property. Keep in mind that you might need to experiment a bit to find out what looks best in your backyard. Try something and if you don’t like the look of it with your Amish Backyard Structure or Garage Structure, keep on going and try something new. There are countless ways you can make your backyard beautiful with a fancy Amish structure and some well-placed landscaping.

After a lengthy time of looking at sheds every where , we came upon the sheds unlimited site and the possibility became a reality. We called and spoke to Steve Jr. and he worked with us to get exactly what we needed. All we had to do was prepare our site and Austin handled the rest to schedule delivery. The most magical thing of all was to see Shane remove the shed from the trailer and wheel it right to the exact site in the field where we wanted it. Shane did tell us promptly that there was a scrape on the shed that happened during transport and the company would be calling to take care of it. The next day I spoke to Steve Jr., who kindly compensated us for the problem and sent out paint for the scrape. We have to say, all in all, it was a pleasure doing business with such a professional company, who has such great customer service. We are very pleased with the workmanship and quality of our new shed. We would highly recommend them!

Custom shed is the way to go..I thought I would take advantage of a shed that was built over winter..to take advantage of the savings..not a good thing. the ridge vent was missing along with the plate across the doorway... and from being stored in the field down back all the water run-off through that area the shed was twisted the side door still is not opening the way it should. the rear 4 x 4 was hanging when it was placed on the pad and others twisted. I reported the problems and the way they talked to me this was a normal thing.. and they were fighting with the township so they could get the storage problem taken care of down back. I will have a carpenter do the repairs and install the ridge vent.. You get what you pay for. PAY THE EXTRA..I still like the shed and will get all repairs done.

I was happy with the entire process: from placing the order to scheduling the delivery to the actual delivery and of course the quality of the shed. Everything was top notch, Sheds Unlimited has their act together and I've already recommended them to some friends. Good work guys.
FROM MY FIRST PHONE CALL TO SHEDS UNLIMITED UNTIL MY DELIVERY, IT WAS A FIRST CLASS OPERATION. THEY ANSWERED MY NUMEROUS QUESTIONS AND WORKED WITH ME ON MY DELIVERY DATE. THEIR PRODUCT IS EXCELLENT AND VERY COMPETITIVELY PRICED. WHEN OTHERS SEE MY SHED, I WILL BE RECOMMENDING THEM TO SHEDS UNLIMITED.

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!
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.
The Shed is fantastic. Excellent craftsmanship. The Delivery Man was an expert in installation. He really knew his stuff. The price, also great. We could NOT have built this shed ourselves with the amount of experience and workmanship that Sheds Unlimited have. Thanks to all Sheds Unlimited Family.

Sheds Unlimited are the best. From the moment I spoke with Kyle about the various options, to scheduling the delivery with Austin/Dave, to the delivery (I think it was Dan) of my "palace" everyone was so helpful, patient and professional. My only question is "why would you look anywhere other than Sheds Unlimited for a shed?" Thank you all very much.
