Backyard Storage Sheds

Adding a storage shed to your backyard can open up new opportunities for how you use your backyard space. A shed is an easy way to add storage and functionality to your backyard without taking up space in your garage, adding onto your home, or leaving tools, furniture, or other yard supplies out in the elements.

When considering which backyard storage sheds are the best fit for your yard, there are some factors to keep in mind. A backyard shed should last you a long time and fit into the space and style of your backyard and house. Here are the top three factors to look for in your shed:

Backyard Shed Quality

One of the most important things to look for in your backyard storage shed is the quality of the materials and build. Like your house, your backyard shed will need to stand up to the elements. Depending on where you live, that might mean extreme heat and sun, heavy winds and rain, or even more extreme weather events like heavy snow or flooding. 


While a cheaper shed from a box store might seem like the right choice now, cheaply made sheds tend to fall apart quickly or require your own setup and build. Look for a backyard shed that has been made with high quality plywood decking, a moisture barrier, and quality framing. Consider what shed additions you might need like hurricane clips, paint colors, or roofing materials. 

HOA Compliance

If you live in a community with a homeowners association, you’ll need to ensure that your new shed complies with the regulations in your neighborhood. Many sheds are made with this in mind, and are designed to meet HOA guidelines.

A Reputable Shed Provider

You can get a backyard shed from many different providers, including big box stores. Look for a provider who builds sheds for quality, not just for easy sale. In the long run, you’re usually better off going with a more reputable shed provider who has the expertise and experience to sell you a shed that will fit into your backyard and last for years to come. A shed provider can also work with you to determine where a shed can fit best into your backyard and what options to offer. A provider will oftentimes deliver your constructed shed to you and place it in your backyard or even build your shed on-site.
