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.

Our shed came out beautiful! You did a fine job. Ordering and delivery were
both a breeze. We are very happy with our shed and would not hesitate to
recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone! Many thanks to Ben Shue and the
young man who skillfully set it in place it for making it so easy.

Super sweet shed should suffice significantly, seriously!

Chip from Newark, Delaware

ShedsUnlimited was the right and best choice for me! I called several times with questions before making my choice, and always received a patient, helpful salesperson who not only knows his sheds but also knows customer service (a vanishing service these days). This level of service extended to the delivery coordinator and the person delivering the shed and handling it with care — all very professional.  And yes, the shed is solid — had it made to the size I needed — and looks great! Five plus stars goes to this company. Thank you for taking pride in your work and valuing your customers. My shed was made in the USA.

Kudos to everyine at Sheds Unlimited.  During the dsign phase all of my questions were answered promptly and everthing I needed in my 2 car 24x24 garage was added. The crew arrived a day earlier than planned and after a day and half of hard work had my buiding completed. Your system and equipment is first class!!!!!! Very satisfied.

 

Joe from Lancaster, VA

I had a terrific experience Sheds Unlimited, beginning with my contact with Kyle in sales. He gave me a very reasonable estimate for exactly what I wanted for my horses. Austin handled shipping to my location on an expedited basis, and Shane delivered it- which was no easy task given the dirt road and tree limbs. And the total cost was less than if I had had it built onsite.

Karen from Cape Cod

The construction is excellent in every detail, and the shed was completed much faster than expected. We didn't adequately describe the site where the shed was being placed, but the driver managed to get the shed put in place all the same. Installing the doors was easier than I had thought it would be. :-) I can't believe how much stuff this thing holds!

Sharon Boxall from Baltimore, MD

Excellent customer service and Excellent Quality Shed.
Our shed came to the Hudson Valley, N.Y approx. 160 miles. Well worth the cost of delivery. Everyone that I dealt with at Sheds Unlimited was very professional and helpful. We needed documents for the town ( ins. certificates, etc) not a problem. Delivery was flawless and simple. Love the mule!! The shed is great and would recommend this company to anyone in the Tri-state area. The cost is lower than local vendors and the quality is superb. Thank you Sheds Unlimited!d

Friendly staff, fast service, reasonable price and great product. I highly recommend!

I only have one negative comment about my experience with Sheds Unlimited and that is that I was told my shed would be delivered between 3 and 5 p.m. and it didn't arrive until 7:15 p.m. and it was very dark by then. The police came and nearly gave the driver a citation for being on the road after dark. I wish I had been given a phone call to tell me how late the driver was running so I wouldn't have been sitting around for so long. Because of the darkness I had to use my painters lights to allow the driver to guide the shed into my back yard, the shed was not put on the pad evenly and I had to level it myself the next day. The shed itself is perfect and I am very happy with my purchase.
