Better Homes and Gardens Test Garden Shed

Hardworking and beautiful, this detail-packed garden shed remains a focal point of the Better Homes and Gardens Test Garden. Its careful details -- Dutch door, double-hung windows -- belie a practical side, with a large double door to allow gear and small garden-machine storage.

Classic Potting Shed

Details matter for focal point elements such as garden sheds. With this traditionally inspired update, sunlight is key, with lots of windows to flood natural light onto the shelves and work space.

Porch-Perfect Garden Shed

For many gardeners, a garden shed does double duty, providing valuable storage as well as a relaxing spot to enjoy the garden. The shaded porch on this pretty L-shape structure (which could easily be transformed into a playhouse) offers respite from the sun.

L-Shape Garden Shed

Not every gardener has an expansive space for a garden shed, which is why inventive plans such as these are both charming and practical. Open on both sides, the shed includes closed-off tool storage and surface area for filling containers and transplanting seedlings.

Cedar Shingle Garden Shed

Rustic finishes add careworn detail to this pretty garden shed. Stylish enough to serve as a focal point, the garden shed offers shelter for containers, room enough for potting plants, and ample storage, too.

English Cottage Garden Shed

Inspired by whimsical structures found in English country gardens, this pretty garden shed features diminutive windows and accents.

Greenhouse Plus Garden Shed

Glass panels prove a boon when it comes time to nurture seedlings and cool-season transplants. Details such as a cupola make this pretty garden shed a welcome addition to a range of garden styles and landscapes.

Charming Cottage Garden Shed

Details make the difference in this lovely, cottagelike garden shed. From the outside, it resembles a cozy small-scale house; inside, expansive wall space offers lots of room for tools and outside toys.

Sunlight-Filled Garden Shed

Lots of natural light from one side and overhead means this garden shed plan also can serve as a greenhouse for cold-sensitive plants. Classic styling makes it a good fit for either historic or new homes.

Small-Scale Garden Shed

Sized to tuck perfectly into backyard corners or against fences, this garden shed is perfect for hobby storage, too. Bonus feature: A wraparound deck offers extra work space or a cozy spot for a chair and table.

Stylish, Traditional Garden Shed

Some of the most interesting garden sheds make use of salvaged materials, such as windows. Repurpose windows and doors for this classic version, or purchase new materials and focus on details, such as the window box.

Old English-Style Garden Shed

Whimsical details and a built-to-look-old layout enhance the charm of this garden shed. Lots of wall space guarantees spots for all sorts of tool storage.
