Shed of the Year

On Gardensite we sell a huge range of garden sheds from many different suppliers. Over recent years, timber sheds have been joined by metal and plastic, all offering practical storage, living and working space.

The popularity of sheds has led to some wonderful designs that depart from the norm. These wacky sheds have caught the eye of Channel 4 who are featuring the Shed of the Year Competition in their 'Amazing Spaces' series.

This nationwide challenge was established in 2007 and has eight categories including Garden Office, Summerhouse and the more intriguing Tardis.

With over 2000 entries, perhaps it will be a magical shed for fairies and pixies that will pick up the £1000 top prize or a traditional Moroccan Riad, alternatively maybe one of the several that have been converted into pubs.

2013 Shed of the Year

Last year's winner had an upturned boat for the roof containing a solar panel that powered both lights and a sound system. In addition there was a gas fridge, cooker and wood burner. The materials were all recycled including a chimney made from the pole from a circus big top.

Practical and Versatile Sheds

Although wacky, these sheds highlight their versatility and many uses, not just storage but a garden office, potting shed, summerhouse, hobby room, even a gym etc.

Amongst others there are timber sheds from Halls, Forest and Rowlinson; metal ones by Yardmaster and Shed Baron; plastic from Duramax and Suncast.

With variables such as floor area, materials and construction method, and the amount and type of glazing - whatever use you are envisaging, there will be an appropriate shed that will suit your requirements.

Amazing Spaces: Shed of the Year will be screened on 24 July, 31 July and 7 August. In the meantime if you favour a conventional style that is easy to assemble, has great looks, is wind and rain resistant and is guaranteed to last for many years, take a look at what's on offer.
