Practical addition to your garden, huts and garden sheds are light constructions mostly made of wood or metal. Whether you choose a shed in a specialized shop or decide to build it yourself, here are 8 sources of inspiration so that your garden shed will be the most original of the neighborhood.
You can use a garden shed the way you want, for example you can store your gardening equipment, put your plants away from the cold or even turn it into a hen house.

This hut is built with untreated wood, giving it a rustic look. A roof made of sheet metal will drain the rainwater.
This shed does not have a door, a simple opening is made in the main wall. Its use will therefore be purely utilitarian.

Feel free to keep a part of the shed as a storage for your tools.
