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 purchased a 12x28 Economy Workshop Garage. At first we wanted a pre-fab garage but changed it to a build on site. It took 6 weeks to schedule delivery, but two days before deliver sheds unlimited called to reschedule. After speaking with several representatives, they were able to build my garage a day after the original date. When they arrived, my order was incorrect and missing items. It took another trip to finish. When the representative came to complete the work, he handed my fiancée a reimbursement check. Although my first impression of sheds unlimited wasn’t great, they did everything in their power to correct the situation. The garage looks great and is well built.

I wanted to thank Sheds Unlimited for a job well done. Your build team is first class and Levi did a GREAT job placing the garage right where I wanted it. The garage was built to my specs and delivered on time. Thanks again for a first class job.

Herman Zimmerman from Wonderful

Just a note to say I am very pleased with the shed built on site at my home. The crew that came worked fast and professionally.
The shed is beautiful and suits my needs for my Harleys well.

In the future you should tell your sales team to advise customers building motorcycle storage sheds to use 3/4 ply wood on the floor rather than the 5/8 provided.
the weight of a motorcycle on the small area of a kickstand makes the 5/8 ply wood sag, especially when in the middle of two framing studs. I put another layer of 5/8 in my shed and it is solid as a rock.

Thanks again for your efforts

I am an artist that needed a studio/shed. After searching the web I found a local artist who had also purchased a studio through sheds unlimited. She had great things to say about her experience. I was happy with the level of service and professionalism these guys showed me. Everything from the sales end to the final delivery. It was quite a process. There were some mistakes made but the team was amazing about remedying them and delivering a shed I am thrilled with. The workmanship is beautiful and I couldn't be happier with the end result. The only drawback was I had to wait awhile but it was worth it. I would definitely use sheds unlimited again if I have the need.

We traveled to the factory to view and order our MaxiBarn. The entire process was simple and made easy by the sales staff. We ordered exactly what we wanted and had it delivered within a month. We were impressed with the quality workmanship and the delivery was perfect with the mule. The staff at Sheds Unltd. are the best as is there product. Could not ask for more. Great Job!

Edward Bird from Essex,MD

Saturday shed hunting. Picked out an in stock shed.
Looked at all sheds on the property. Found one the size I wanted. Color and features were fine. Thanks to Steve for staying a little late on a Saturday afternoon to finalize my purchase. Saved 5% and got free delivery. Took me 2 weeks to prepare my site another 1 1/2 weeks for delivery, Everyone contacted by phone was very pleaseant. Delivery went real smooth and on time. Driver was very nice and did not hesitate to move my shed 1 inch in two different directions at my request. Quality shed. I am very happy with my purchase. Highly recommend.

Rob from Newark, De

Great purchase experience. Vladimir was very pleasant. Austin the delivery man did a great job in placing the shed in place. He was fast and efficient. My only surprise was to see that the roof was notmadeof plywood but particle board.

Jose from Spotswood, NJ

Ordered my 12x14 Shed from Sheds Unlimited. Ordered a kit style due to a fence issue getting into my backyard. The kit came very nicely packed and no damage. I soon realized that the door style that I thought I order was not the style shipped. I contacted customer service and they offered to drive up the right doors the next day and exchange them. I was shocked that they were willing to do this with what seemed a misunderstanding during the ordering. Very polite and professional. I ended up keeping the doors shipped cause I liked the way they looked but was still impressed with the offer to resolve the issue. I also recieved a broken door locking latch bolt (small extra part) . Sheds unlimited shipped one up and I had it in 3 days. Great company. Thanks , love the SHED. My kit looks like your assembled sheds and I'm not a contractor. I do recommend that maybe a few more shingles are sent with the kits. I only had 1 left over shingle. If I hadent made all perfect cuts or had a few damaged I would have been short. Otherwise 5 star rating.
