If you are thinking of purchasing a garden shed in Leeds, and value quality, choice and affordability, gardensite.co.uk offers all you need and a great deal more.
Set up as a family business in 1952, we moved with the times and were one of the very first specialist online retailers in 1999. We have been supplying garden sheds to customers in Leeds and Yorkshire ever since.
We have a large selection of different types and sizes of garden shed from all the top brand names. The very best choice from Forest, Halls, Rowlinson, Yardmaster, Suncast and DuraMax – with free delivery straight to your front door in Leeds.
Wooden sheds are still the most popular and will be more than equal to the Leeds and Yorkshire weather. You'll be glad to know they are watertight and will remain so for many years. People admire the rustic, traditional appearance and, as a natural material, they fit easily into a garden landscape.
Metal sheds require little maintenance or none at all, and are recommended if you store expensive garden equipment and cycles. They are more secure but do not look as traditional as timber sheds unless you have wood effect cladding. Staining can be minimized with rust free fittings and effective guttering.
Plastic sheds are easy to assemble quickly. Very low maintenance is assured as they don't rot or rust and require no painting. Maybe not quite as rigid as metal or wooden sheds, they utilise the latest plastics and resins to achieve high durability and security.
We can deliver garden sheds to Leeds in every standard size from 4ft x 3ft to an impressive 9ft x 18ft workshop.
When buying a shed, consider how much and what use the shed is going to receive, now and in future years. Buy a compact sized shed if it's just to be used for storage or something a little bigger if it's required for cycles or motorbikes, others are suitable for gardening and other equipment.
As the size increases there Is clearly much greater scope for DIY and hobbies. Increasing the size gives you more opportunities, bigger projects can be contemplated, large equipment such as lawn mowers can be repaired etc. Sheds that can also be used as a greenhouse are particularly useful for keen gardeners to grow their own plants.
Buy the biggest shed you can afford and that is appropriate for your garden. Frustration and annoyance will be the result if your needs change and the shed proves too small.
If you are located in Leeds or Yorkshire, there's no need to visit a garden centre to check styles and sizes. All the garden sheds are listed and pictured on gardensite.co.uk, fully illustrated with all the relevant specs and technical details.
Optional extras such as staging, benches and bases are also explained, so that your shed can be configured just how you like it.
Sheds can easily be compared online. However if you have a particular requirement or any other query, there is a dedicated helpline and our fully trained, very knowledgeable sales staff will be able to assist you.
Delivery time to Leeds will depend on the particular type of shed. One week is quoted by most manufacturers and gardensite.co.uk always ensure that the delivery is as fast as possible. You can check exactly how quick on our tracking system all the way to the Yorkshire.
