Avid gardeners should have a safe location for storing their tools and supplies. The simple solution is a typical storage shed. However, we suggest a more garden-specific investment in the form of a pole barn potting shed. Here’s why this is a sound solution for the weekend gardener.
What Is a Potting Shed?
A potting shed is designed specifically for storing garden equipment and supplies. Unlike a typical shed, a potting shed usually also has windows. In fact, the windows constitute a large portion of the structure. Windows in the shed enable it to function as a greenhouse for those who choose to dabble in indoor gardening.
Let’s have a look at some of the special features of a potting shed.
Cultivate Your Seeds
Many gardeners place seed trays on the windowsills in their home. This option may not be feasible if you have a large quantity of seeds. A potting shed provides the ideal environment, especially if you’re growing plants that require a warmer climate.
A Warm Growing Environment
With its multitude of windows, you get a greater warming effect in spring and summer. It also keeps frigid temperatures down a bit in late fall and winter. This makes the potting shed a great location for overwintering plants and bulbs. For the gardener, it’s also a delightful spot to relax and catch up on your favorite gardening magazine.
Potting sheds also provide the space for securing garden essentials. Optional features include shelves, hooks, and cubbies. Practical storage solutions include wall-mounted tall shelves and built-in hooks for small items like trowels and thermometers.
