Garden Buildings – The Basic Garden Sheds. Small buildings in the garden contribute greatly to efficiency and often to the garden’s charm as well. On the practical side, they provide shelter and essential storage space for garden equipment and furniture.

Visually they can contribute in an important way to the look of the garden, providing architectural balance to the house or to some other structure in the garden.
