Turn your shed into a creative space (pt3)

Sheds Cheshire

In this series we’re exploring the potential of our garden retreats, the shed is a place for yourself without distraction. All it takes is a little imagination to make your shed the dream extension just a few meters from your back door.

Library
A quite place is hard to come by, between work and home it can be hard to catch a break. If books are your cornerstone and they’re your escape from day to day life, your own library would be the dream. With some slight renovations and insolation, your wooden shed can become an academia paradise. A few bookcases and a comfy chair is all you need to escape into your books.

Animal house
Winter can be a hard time for pets; your shed can provide a haven where they’re sheltered from the cold and wet winter. You wont have to worry about the house getting covered in mud or fur, and your pets can rule their own roost.

Wood storage
If you have your own log fire, a garden shed provides the perfect dry storage for a winter’s supply of wood. You can be assured that your fuel will keep dry throughout the cold months, helping you to keep your home toasty as the nights draw in.

Guesthouse
Probably the most adventurous and impressive use for your larger than usual shed, would be to create an extra bedroom for your guests. With some renovations and improvements, your shed could be fitted with water, heating and electricity, making an impressive addition to your house. You could even start a B&B!

Don’t hesitate to make use of that extra real estate you have in the garden! We’ve named but a few thing that your current or future shed might be capable of. Atlas Sheds Cheshire can provide a shed for whatever function you fancy. Make your shed a welcome retreat for yourself; make more room for your home and make more out of your garden.

Your September Gardening Tips

bg

During this late summer month your garden will be reaping the rewards for one of the hottest summers on record. Whilst the fruits of your labour are present it is now the best time to begin preparing for the harsher winter months and preparing for next spring. It is vital to make the most of the warmth in the next few months.

While the soil is still warm, planting and transplanting is a good use of time, the current warmth means that before the evening’s draw in and the coolness of winter approaches plants are able to settle their roots and give your garden a fresh face of colour before the first frost.

Its also time to gather those remaining bulbs you may have in your sheds and have them planted, so that in spring they might thrive and flower. The late autumn give the bulbs time to germinate and store energy for that spring bloom.

There are plenty of smaller jobs to be organising too;

• Plants that are sensitive to frost should be covered in the coming weeks to avoid permanent frost damage and the undoing of the growth they’ve made over the summer period.

• Summer bulbs should be dug up and stored in airy containers.

• Place potted plants either indoors, inside your sheds or in a sheltered position.

• Replace or empty any watering devices that might be damaged by frozen water. Including water pumps for your ponds, which can be replaced by anti ice pumps.
