So… you have a shed…
It’s functional… holds your gardening equipment, tools, feed for livestock, etc.
Maybe you converted it into a nice sitting area for adults or a fun playhouse for your kids. Or maybe you created a small greenhouse in it.
No matter what you use it for, it’s always nice to spruce it up with a bit of landscaping: it could be your getaway at the end of a hard day at work, or your secret place where you can go play with dirt. Or, it could just be part of your garden, and add to the happy time you spend there. Here are just a few landscaping ideas for sheds to inspire you.
Landscaping Ideas For Sheds
Create a beautiful walkway to your shed
The first thing that you can do is create a lovely looking walkway to your storage shed. You can do this in a few different ways.
WOVTE DIY Walk Maker Concrete Stepping Stone Mold Garden Lawn Pathmate Stone Mold Find some interesting looking larger sized rocks and create a path going to your storage shed. Or, you can create your own walkways design with one of these walkway molds.
Along the same lines, you can line a path to your storage shed with some pretty colorful flowers. You could plant the flowers right into the ground or you can find some neat looking containers (ceramic planters are beautiful) to plant them in and place along the path.
Leave the path between the flowers just dirt, or you could add river rock or even fancy looking wood chips to fill in your path.
Another idea would be to get a mold and create some stepping stones to form a walkway to your outdoor storage shed.
Add some lattice to your shed for climbers
Now that you have some great ideas for creating a nice landscaped path, you can move on to do some landscaping next to your shed.
A very simple but pretty way to landscape around your storage shed would be to attach a lattice to both sides of your shed, or by the sides of your path, and plant something that will climb up the lattice.
It could be a pretty flowering plant or a very simple vine. I can only imagine a Joseph’s coat rose bush blooming by the side of my shed!
Other beautiful climbers for lattice:
- honeysuckle (this coral honeysuckle with bright orange flowers is one of my favorites!)
- morning glory (careful with this, as it can be invasive)
- climbing hydrangea
- chocolate vine
Create a patio for the shed
If you have turned your storage shed into a playhouse or sitting area, you could purchase some patio brick stone and create a lovely patio area outside of the shed area.
Plant flowers all around the patio area, or add some flowers in containers.
Adding a pretty set of tables and chairs and an outdoor fireplace will also make a lovely accent.
Add flower boxes to the windows
Attach some flower boxes to the windows of your storage sheds and plant some flowers like wave petunias that will provide a fantastic touch of color to your shed.
Before you know it you will have a beautifully landscaped storage shed.
Add potted flowers by the door
These gorgeous hydrangea flowers, potted in a cute silver sleigh, can greet you every day on your way to the shed. Place them at the door and enjoy them all summer long. BTW, did you know you can control their color with a bit of garden chemistry?
