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.

dave del from nj

Thanks Sheds Unlimited. My 8x10 shed is perfect. The colors matched the house perfectly. The entire process, from Q&A prior to ordering to delivery, was top notch! The shed quality is just as I expected, unlike other sheds sold online or at the "big stores", this one is solid and with quality finishing. Getting lots of compliments!

Sid Fernandez from Eastchester, NY

The shed is beautiful. It is a great addition to our property and it was a great price.

Bonnie Haring from Boyertown, PA

The shed is very well built, good quality, fair price. We did have a build issue, we originally did not get what we ordered. After triple checking and having a new correct size shed built and swapped out, everything is great.

Mike H from Smithtown NY

By far the best building experience we have ever had. We have built three homes with the same builder, and while he does very good work it was always difficult to get through. His quote to build a detached garage was 40% higher than Sheds Unlimited. So we started the process to build a garage with Shed Unlimited. Amazing what you can do via the internet and a few phone calls. From the beginning to the end Sheds Unlimited was professional, and upfront with how the process would work. End of story our garage was delivered this week. They arrived at 6am as committed to (actually had to ask them to delay start as were in a city neighborhood with close neighbors) They have such a incredible work ethic that while they didn't necessarily like wasting an hour they graciously understood. 3 days later the garage was completed with zero issues. Mark and the other two employee were a pleasure to have in and around our home for those 3 days. If I owned a business I would only hope i could employee these 3 gentlemen. The quality of the finished product is exactly what we expected and are accustom to. The building inspector found one issue and Mark and crew corrected same day to pass inspection. They cleaned up the entire grounds and took all garbage with them. Incredible organization and I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone. Our neighbors actually came out of their homes when Mark and team were departing to get brochures and commented on how they were watching the process and again were amazed that the team was in and out in 3 days. Great job, and Thank you!!!

Marina Radley from Manahawkin N.J.

Quality shed....great pricing....smooth delivery...what else could you want?

Andy from Commack, NY

I work with a lot of contractors and companies in both my day job and side job and there is nothing worse than the ones that need to have their hands held through the process. Sheds Unlimited was definitely not one of those kinds of companies. I told them what i wanted once and that is exactly what showed up at my house. When i did have to speak to the reps (Mark L. and Austin) it was very easy as they knew exactly what they were doing. The greatest part of my experience is when i placed my order I asked Mark if there was any way this could be a priority order, and he told me he would make a note for manufacturing that i needed this ASAP, and when Austin the man in charge of shipping called he referred to this note, and my shed was delivered weeks early. The prices were also great for the amount that came with the shed. I found my shed was about 100-200 more then competitors basic models, but the competitors were just basic and primed. My shed came with 2 windows, 2 sets of doors, paint and shutters, so i was very happy to pay this amount.

Thanks Sheds Unlimited!

Justin Johnson from Mantua NJ
