Sometimes you hear sheds being
referred to as Garden Sheds instead of Wood Sheds. In
this short little article, I will try to explain what
difference, if any, there is between a Garden Shed and a
The first question, is there a
difference? Well, no not really. A shed is a
shed, right? When people refer to a Garden Shed, it
typically references what they use the shed for. A
Garden Shed is used for storing Garden Tools, Mowers,
Trimmers, etc. Sometimes a Garden Shed is decorative
to be part of the landscape, with decorative bushes and
trees landscaped around the shed to build the shed into the
"picture" of the backyard. This is quite common of
Garden Sheds, they are as much as part of your backyard as
the trees and the bushes are.
When people refer to Wood Sheds,
they are typically again referring to how they use them.
When people refer to their sheds as Wood Sheds, they are
giving you a hint as to how they use them. The term
refers to a shed that is used more for utilitarian purposes
and sometimes as a working workshop. Some may have
power run to them.
So, in summary, Garden Sheds and
Wood Sheds are generally just nomenclature for the same
thing. The designs for them, as far as building them,
are the same thing. So whether you see our plans
referred to as Garden Sheds or Wood Sheds, or Barns, we are
referring to generally the same thing.
