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.

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.

We looked a t a few websites but found ShedsUnlimited to fit our needs perfectly. We used e-mail and phone calls to get everything clarified. Our shed was delivered and set up on our foundation in 20 minutes!

Mary from Fulton, MD

LOVE my shed, so easy to order my custom shed. Great people and thanks so much to the guy that delivered it thru the pouring rain. He did a wonderful job!

Sue from Hillsborough, NJ

Amazing!! The crew arrived on time and got right to work. The three young men were courteous and professional. They constructed a quality garage with loft in the time of a work day. They left the area neat and clean when they were done. Everyone that sees it can't believe that it was put up so quickly because of the great workmanship. We were very happy with the service from start to finish and highly recommend Shed's Unlimited!

The price was the main reason I picked Sheds Unlimited to begin, and was worried that the quality might be lacking. They brought the shed early, which really helped me out, and it looks great - very sturdy.

Sheds unlimited did a great job facilitating the shed process. The communication was excellent. Mark was great explaining the process and keeping me informed every step of the way. The delivery guy was great and patient. We needed more doors added to our shed when the service crew arrived they were very efficient. Over all 100% satisfaction with Sheds Unlimited.
