Pretty Cottage

Corral your gardening tools and potting projects into an attractive structure, like Rate My Space user MeadowsweetDays' garden shed.

Red Shed

This adorable red garden shed, a mini barn, is the focal point of the backyard. Encircled by a picket fence, the shed could be used to store gardening supplies or as a child's playhouse.

Country Shed Provides Storage in Cottage Garden

A rose covered shed looks at home in a country style garden. This storage shed was designed to be part of a garden landscape, blending in with the setting and giving a place to store lawn equipment, planting supplies, and outdoor furniture.

Small Garden Shed

A small shed is painted with bright trim and accented with window boxes and a container garden.

Garden Shed Pond

An outdoor shed faces a pond with small deck. A stone path leads away from the shed, which is set back in a lush garden filled with red flowers, ornamental grasses, and shrubbery.

Turquoise Garden Shed

This turquoise shed is surrounded by a lush garden filled with flowering plants, ornamental grasses, shrubs, and trees. A stone bird bath is nearby as is an iron gate used as garden decor.

Rooftop Garden on Shed

Even a garden shed can be home to a rooftop garden.

Outdoor Dining

This outdoor oasis is complete with a pergola-covered deck and a blend of modern and bungalow architectural styles. Hanging curtains keep pests away when enjoying an outdoor meal and cafe lights illuminate the yard below.

Rustic Gardening Shed

The gardening shed on Blackberry Farm is full of seeds, tools and a potbelly stove for those cool mountain mornings.

Sublime Shed

A charming garden shed strikes an almost Asian note in this Charleston garden otherwise steeped in European aesthetics.

The Tokyo E Shed

A striking flat roof design and a sliding room for easy access make the Tokyo E shed a popular backyard choice. Clear or frosted glass is available for the door panels and you have the option to paint the structure any color you desire.

The Potting Shed

Built from hand-thrown brick with a tempered glass roof, this elegantly designed greenhouse by CFS Architects blends in perfectly with its idyllic surroundings. 

The Shed as Guest House

Fitness room, art studio or guest house, this dazzling addition to the yard and garden is typical of the wide variety of prefabricated shed options available today, most of which offer customization from the shape, size and materials used to special features like cedar tongue and groove ceilings and interior partition walls.

New Life for Old Shed

In creating a garden for her granddaughters, Katie Sanstead made the existing shed a focal point with new paint and blue French doors (that echo the color on the main home's front door), which replaced solid metal doors in an uninspiring green. Around the garden, birdhouses are on stands crafted by her husband, Bob, who also added beadboard and electricity to the shed-turned-playhouse.

The Propagation Shed

A beautiful work space specifically designed just for planting.

Customize Shed with Stained Glass Window

Stain glass windows can add a personal touch to a garden shed.

Garden Sheds Good for Keeping Tools Protected

Weather-proof storage in a shed or tool locker is recommended, because tools last longer when kept under cover.

Fairy Tale Shed

Sweet Autumn Clematis climbs around the shed door. Yellow flowers of Golden Glow Rudbeckia show off the potting shed

Dayglow Green

One appealing aspect of most contemporary prefabricated sheds is the option to be as creative as you like with color designs such as this Dayglow green creation which is made from such eco-friendly materials as FSC certified lumber and mixed-source recycled metal.

Barbara's Shed

We love HGTVGardens community member Barbara's adorable shed, which she calls "Peter Rabbit-themed."

Santa's Workshop

During the Christmas season, HGTVGardens community member Barbara Stanley transforms her prizewinning garden shed into a magical holiday house.

Storage Sheds Good for Keeping Tools Close at Hand

Backyard sheds are convenient for storing items such as tools, compost, toys and bicycles. Fit shed with a sturdy padlock, and consider where it will be placed so as not to be in full view.

Fit For a Fairytale

HGTVGardens community member Barbara's potting shed looks like it was plucked from a brothers Grimm tale.

Enchanted Cottage

Nestled in the woods, this garden cottage looks like something out of a fairy tale but it is actually on the grounds of the Botanischer Garten der Technischen Universität Darmstadt (Germany).

Wee Well House

This adorable outbuilding by HGTV fan pleasantplace is flanked by hollyhocks to lend additional cottage-y atmosphere.
