The Emerald range of sheds and garages from Shed Baron is now available in Anthracite Grey. Will this colour replace green for popularity within British gardens? Robert Hall investigates.
Called Anthracite, the new colour option is a grey powder coated finish that is now available when you buy an Olympian Grange, Parkdale, Rosedale or Springdale shed.
Metal sheds have come a long way over the past twenty years, now becoming a first choice option for many people who are looking at adding cheap extra storage to their home.
