Get ready for spring will be a delightful chore when you incorporate these great ideas into your garden potting shed plan. If you have a green thumb or want to acquire one, stick around and dig in the dirt with me. A backyard potting shed is a great way to get a jump on spring. Weather can still be wintry, but if you do a good job in your potting shed, spring can begin much earlier in your garden.

Are you new at the potting game? Let’s start with the potting process…

Repotting Your Plant

Potting/Repotting in Your Potting Shed

Potting a plant is simply finding a pot the right size for your plant, mixing soil to the right consistency, and placing your plant in the pot. Repotting usually is necessary when a plant outgrows the pot it’s been planted in. Sometimes a plant may need to be repotted more than once. Our Garden Shed Gang has great tips to guide you through the potting maze.

Storage Inside Your Potting Shed

Just like you need shelves inside a “normal” outdoor storage shed you can also do a lot with shelves, and especially with a potting bench. Look at Mellisa’s great ideas in her Potting Bench Idea Gallery below.

Remember when putting your potting bench in place; when working at a potting bench (whether sitting on a stool or standing) your elbow should always be bent at 90 degrees for comfort

Potting Shed/Greenhouse; a Great Combination

With a potting shed/greenhouse you will be able to not only prepare and repot your plants, but keep them growing all winter long. Most potting shed/greenhouse combinations simply make use of extra windows or skylights on one side, making the greenhouse a kind of lean to. Put one of these in your back yard and dig in the dirt all winter long.

I congratulate the entire crew of Sheds Unlimited for their professionalism, skill, and passion. Ben did an excellent job in completing the order and providing critical information. James expertly coordinated the pre-production and delivery ahead of schedule. The construction team of John and Matthew were dedicated and extremely proficient in their tasks in erecting the building. Due to rain the team was forced to make a second trip and enthusiastically finished the construction. The completed 24' by 16' building looks marvelous. The Sheds Unlimited crew can be proud of their efforts, and I am absolutely delighted to have acquired their services. I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Dan Earhart from Severn, MD

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

Sheds Unlimited General Manager, I want to take the time to recognize our complete satisfaction with the new 8'x18' vinyl shed delivered last Friday. The delivery was amazing to watch as the skilled and hard working driver skillfully navigated the semi tractor trailer, subsequently unloaded and placed the shed into the appropriate location on the pad and was gone in about an hour. The video on your site of 'The Mule' effectively describes this outstanding delivery capability.

The quality and overall service is a 5 STAR in my book. Please thank all the contributing workers and special hats off to the driver who made the delivery with the temperature at 101F. He is truly an outstanding frontline representative of your organization and you can be proud of him. Delivery Specialist, You make a Difference!

Thanks Again

We researched many places and options before my husband and I took a ride out to Lancaster. We went to many places including Sheds Unlimited. Their product and choices are fantastic and very reasonable including the delivery fee. But, most important to me is Customer Service. I was very impressed with Mark, he made the process so easy and comfortable. That is why we went with Sheds Unlimited. Our shed came just when Nelson promised and the delivery and placement was perfect. Even in the rain, very professional. We love our shed. Thank you to all at Sheds Unlimited.

Elaine Campbell from Woodlyn, PA

Excellent customer service! Excellent product!  Process to order was easy and staff were very helpful every step of the way.  The weather proved to be challenging for the delivery, but Austin provided almost daily updates until the shed was delivered.  Getting the shed to the backyard was not easy, but the crew made it work.  Minor blemishes were fixed in a timely manner.  I am very pleased with all aspects of Sheds Unlimited and would highly recommend them!

I have a hobby/business where I build R/C airplanes for folks (primarily turbine powered ones) all over the USA. Lately I have been very busy and the primary building space I have (2 car detached garage) became extremely cramped. I found this shed site through an internet search and went up there to see what they had. All of the samples at their showroom property were very well built and had features that I liked. I was able to get exactly what I wanted plus they were able to build it on site because of the limitations of my yard for access. The build team was very competent and they constructed my shed perfectly and installed all of the components that I ordered. In addition Sheds Unlimited was able to paint my shed to match structures on the rest of my property. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing these types of structures, they were a pleasure to work with.

From start to finish, dealing with Sheds Unlimited was a great experience. After visiting Gap, PA, looking at the sheds, and dealing with Ben our salesperson, we selected a 12' x 10' Classic shed. We needed to have the shed built on-site. Ben guided us through the details, James arranged delivery, and Leon and Nate delivered and assembled the shed in under 4 hours. Incredible! The shed looks great and is well made. We couldn't be happier with our purchase.

Paul D. from Davidsonville, MD

very pleased with my new shed. to have all the work done for the same price of buying a kit and having to build it and paint it. you cant beat it. easily went from trailer to pad in a few minutes. wish it had a gable vent ill have to add it.

Steve from N.y.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the shed I bought from you this past summer. I purchased it to park my Harley in. I finished off the interior and just added some indoor/outdoor carpet for the final touch. Thank you so much for building and selling such a high quality shed at a very reasonable price My Harley and I appreciate it. God Bless!

The shed is just perfect for our needs and looks really great.  Customer service was  very professional while still being friendly.  The delivery process is meant to be filmed for sure!  Would definitley recommend ShedsUnlimited to family and friends.  Thanks
