Time for a new shed!

Landscaping around your shed is one way of making it a focal or accent point of your backyard.  If you have an old, beat up shed, consider painting it to

freshen it up.  If it’s an old  T1-11 wood shed, you might need to replace it altogether.  Many times replacing your old wooden shed with a new one is more economical than having it repaired.  You can start by viewing attractive garden sheds for sale on our website.

To create a focal point, landscape with small shrubs or trees, perhaps of the dwarf variety so that you don’t have to spend a lot of time pruning each year.  You also don’t want to plant something that will grow too big or too close to your shed so that it does not do any damage to your siding or shingles.  Changes are that you have a stone pad as a foundation.  Remember that plants should not be set too close to your shed, so be sure to plant your shrubs on the outer area of your stone pad.

Grassy perennials create an interesting focal point when landscapring around your shed.

A variety of dwarf shrubs can create a year-round focal point, with a few flowering perennials or annuals between – depending on how much upkeep or maintenance you like to do.

Don’t forget your entryway into the shed.  Yes, you most likely have a ramp.  But a nice walkway of pavers or flagstone – perhaps even a mossy brick path, can add a bit of charm to your shed landscape as well.

And lastly, don’t neglect the flowerboxes, if any.  A splash of color with seasonal annuals, perhaps with some trailing ivy, creates a welcoming view from any angle of your yard or deck.  For those that don’t have a green thumb, you can always choose some realistic faux flowers (that’s “fake” fellas).

Either way, the point is that your shed creates an investment in your property.  Properly landscaping around your shed will make it a part of your yard and perhaps a welcoming respite from the day’s work.  Who knows, you might like it so much that you will decide to turn your shed into your backyard Garden Office.

I was reading an interesting article today, chock full o’tips about organic gardening. This is just one of the many recent articles that I’ve

Porch Patio Garden Shed

come across that mention how many new gardeners there seem to be this season as compared to previous years.  Largely due to the economy, people are looking for ways to raise their own crops of organic garden goodies.

Here is a recent article in the Lancaster County Newspaper that gardeners might find interesting:

  • Did you know that you can plant basil near your tomatoes to help enhance the flavor and keep away pests?  Wow!  Who knew?!
  • Did you know that planting cosmos flowers near tomatoes and peppers helps attract praying mantis and lady bugs, which eat the pestier pests?  Who knew!?
  • Did you know that tomatoes and peppers are the easiest veggies to grow in containers?  They are easy for newbie gardeners and those who are limited with space – grow a tomato plant on your deck!

Does this news excite you as much as it does me?  It makes me wish these rainy days would end already so that I can go out and play in the dirt, not to mention make myself a yummy tomato salad (with basil!).

If you have any gardening tips to share, please feel free to do so here!  And of course, if you are looking for a garden shed to keep all of your tools handy, look no further than Lancaster’s own Country Sheds manufacturer!

A few more “did you knows” that you might not have known:

  • Did you know that Fox Sheds recycles all of their vinyl siding scraps?

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve updated!  We’ve been busy as bees here at Fox’s Country Sheds, even though the weather hasn’t been

Pergola - In Stock at Fox's Sheds

Pergola - In Stock at Fox's Sheds

cooperating very much lately.  Even so, once the rain clouds disappear, orders start “pouring” in.  It seems people are anxious to get out into the yard and de-clutter their garages by adding a backyard shed.  We’re happy to oblige!

Between rainstorms, we’ve been busy adding Pergolas to our inventory.  These beauties come in sizes beginning at 8 x 8 and go up to 14 x 24Our pergolas are all Amish made and are all built with pressure treated lumber. They can be ordered with clear sealer that brings out the beauty of the wood grain (as shown here on this in-stock 10×16 Pergola), or in a high quality white paint applied at the shop (as shown below).

The standard pergola comes complete with a floor, so that you can enjoy it right on your grassy lawn without having to mow underneath it.  Or, it can be ordered as a “kit” with or without a floor, so that you can install it wherever you’d like such as on a patio or deck.

Our Pergolas are made by the same Amish builder that creates our beautiful Gazebos – so you know that you are getting the same excellent quality that we are known for.
