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.

Shed was delivered right on time. Nate drove it into the back yard and placed it perfectly. He even moved my old shed out of the way. The ground was wet and soft and I was afraid my grass would be torn to shreds but there was only very light dents in one part of the lawn so I stamped on it with my feet, threw some seed and that's that. Thanks again. The shed looks great and very well made. I especially like the textured floor. I was expecting plain old plywood as the surface but whatever the coating is looks like it will last a long time. My neighbor is jealous especially after I told him what I paid. His is not as good looking and he paid almost a grand more.

Great experience with Sheds Unlimited from inquiring, ordering, follow up and delivery. The shed is just as ordered. Beautifully made. Delivery guys arrived as scheduled, and perfectly placed. Very happy and definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited to others. Thank you.

John from Long Island

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.

Awesome experience! The 3 guys who erected the building were wonderful and very accomadating. The building is beautiful, and is actually being turned into a residence. I couldn't be more happy. They are hard working, despite rainy weather and very mountainous terrain. I am making a CD of the process for their office. Again kudos to all involved, and thank you.

Karen Sullivan from Charity, Va

GREAT JOB! Was build well and perfect. MANY people asked us where we got it from and we proudly told them.

Michael from Warminster PA

I needed to build a single garage for my car for the longest time, but wasnt able to find a good and affordable option, everything i looked for the size i wanted was at least 1k higher than here, let alone with higher shipping and installation cost.

I was able to order my garage right over the phone in 15mins, they came 2 weeks earlier than the time they quoted me, and the installation were amazing. came 5 mins earlier to when they said they'll be here, got it done in less time than they estimated and finished with an amazing job. they left the work site with no trash or any sign that they been there expect for the garage.

the quality of the garage is great, all the edges are sealed tight, door works seamlessly, and the paint looks wonderful.

Couldnt be happier, i would recommend anyone that's looking for a shed or garage to come to these guys, save time, save money, and satisfied with results.

After much research I am very happy with Sheds Unlimited and the quality shed they built for me.

RICHARD Mazar from West Wyoming,Pa.

Great doing business with this company. Always responsive and helpful. Driver/ delivery guy was great. Quality is excellent.

Tom Gallagher from Ocean View NJ

We were very happy with our experience with Sheds Unlimited. We chose a stock shed off of their lot and it was delivered 10 days after our pad site was ready.

We shopped around and found that Sheds Unlimited had the best price and quality.

Highly recommend them!
