(4.5) Based on 4 Reviews


Limited outside space? That's no problem if you invest in a Lotus 5x8 Lean To Metal Shed that is perfect to locate in a compact area.

Neatly placed against fence or wall, the single door can be positioned on the left or right, whatever is more appropriate. Shelving can also be installed as an option to help with storage or whatever activity for which the shed is being used.

You can rely on any Lotus shed to be deceptively strong and highly durable. Hot dipped high tensile galvanised steel is used for cladding, this is strong and hardwearing and carries a non-perforation warranty for ten years.

Due to the shed's impressive specifications and build quality, little maintenance is necessary, the smart Heritage Green paintwork should retain its appearance with no risk of rust occurring. 

Self-assembly is quite simple, there are fewer parts than you'd imagine and the instructions are comprehensive. If this isn't practical, there is a professional installation service available as an option.

Attractive Shed

Once the shed is up it looks great and the green finish blends in very well with the rest of the garden, The instructions are clear and understandable - unlike some products from China. Care has to be taken in screwing it together as many of the screws require a certain degree of force to make a tight connection. I found it easier to get the screw to fit correctly with a hand screwdriver and then to tighten up later with an electric screwdriver. This makes the whole process much slower depending on how many screws require special attention. I had previously put up another metal shed by a different make and it took about half the time as this one because the screws went in effortlessly. Another pair of hands is useful here and there when applying an opposing force on some of the difficult to reach roof bolts etc.There are plenty of screws,nuts and bolts included. but mine was short on the plastic washers which I needed to replace. However, this isn't an expensive product - so it's not going to be perfect. The delivery service is excellent and on the whole I'm happy with the shed and would recommend it to someone looking for a maintenance free, inexpensive and good looking shed.

Sturdy little shed

I just needed somewhere to store a few tools and this does the job perfectly. Sturdier than it looks and quite easy to build if you follow the instructions. I went for the floor option as well which I think was a good idea. Can't think of any negatives, good shed, well made and won't need painting.

All in All a Good Buy

You need an electric screwdriver ideally to assemble this pent style shed. It took a bit longer than I thought but the instructions are easy enough to follow. Hanging the steel wall sections onto the frame takes some concentration and is better with two people (one holding). When constructed the shed is surprisingly rigid as the individual panels seem a little light but the frame gives it strength. All in all a good shed that does its job and will not need treating every year.

Perfect little shed

I bought this 5x8 lean-to shed because it was the only one which would fit into an awkward space at the bottom of my garden and had the door on the "short end" (nobody seems to think that this is important!). Although the assembly was tedious and remnded me of my meccano set (lots of screws and nuts/bolts), it was very easy to do and I am very pleased with the finished item. Delivery was on time and the lorry driver was very helpful helping to carry it into the garden. I assembled it 95% by myself (it is claimed to be a two-person job). I only needed a bit of help to hold the back of ~ 6 bolts whilst I tightened the nuts on the roof. The shed looks great when assembled - very clean and tidy. My only complaint(s) related to the fact that some of the screws did not tighten up (the width of the screw threads was a bit small for the pre-drilled holes so the screws pulled out) and the metal walls are made from very thin sheet steel (thinner than a tin can) so don't store the famly silver in there as it would be easy to access with a can-opened! Nevertheless, it was excellent value for money and needs no maintenance. I would certainly buy this shed again and any of its larger siblings.
