There's nothing like an open fire or wood burner to keep you warm through the winter months, but logs must be dry and well seasoned to burn efficiently.

That's why a Forest Overlap 4ft  x 6ft Shed With Lean To is ideal if you need to store logs in addition to garden equipment and tools. Attractively styled and highly practical, the lean-to can also be used to shelter large items such as wheelbarrows.

The square cut mixed FSC softwood overlap cladding is pressure treated, so there's no need to apply preservative, it is guaranteed for 15 years against fungal decay and rot. 

You enter the shed through a single door that can be hinged on either side, these are hidden for security and the door which has a hasp & staple latch is strengthened by 'Z' framing. The polycarbonate window is unbreakable and fitted with security screws, it will not become brittle or yellow with age.

Pressure treated board is used for the floor, very hard wearing and stable, as is the roof that has a black sand felt covering to ensure it is weather proof.

Vehicles We Use
Items will be delivered on larger lorries which can get to most places it's typically, a 7.5-ton lorry which is about the size of a dustbin lorry, this will depend on the item that is being delivered and should you have any concerns with restricted access to your property we ask you to contact us prior to placing an order.

Unloading Of Your Delivery
Due to the nature of this product, delivery will be made to the front of the property to the nearest location. Our drivers will not carry these items inside your home or back garden. When the item is delivered on a pallet, the pallet and packaging are non-returnable and the goods can only be manoeuvred on a flat and level surface (i.e. not a gravel driveway) by a pallet truck. On some occasions, the driver will split the package to assist with the manoeuvring of the item. Once you are happy, we will ask you to check the condition of the goods and sign for the delivery. Assistance with unloading may be required.

Really pleased with my little shed

Makes my garden look like a Pinterest post. Slightly unclear instructions and even though we mucked some of it up, no one would notice. Really happy with the look and quality of the shed for the price.

Outstanding service!

The day I ordered this unit I had an email from the manufacturer, Forest Garden asking me to log into their portal and select a delivery day, I duly did this and the options were well within the given lead time. The item arrived on the day, in the time slot given and the drivers unloaded the unit into my garage for me. I decided to put the unit together myself to save on costs, but was a little worried in how difficult it could end up being. I was worried for no reason - the instructions were clear and simple and within 2 hours the units was assembled, felted and being filled! I cannot fault the service of the GardenSite staff that recommended this after listening to my needs and nor can I fault the service of Forest Garden - well done both!!! I wouldn't hesitate in selecting and recommending GardenSite again!
