- This sentry style wooden garden shed is built in a manner that saves maximum space.
- The upright structure uses a minimal amount of base yet still provides optimum space for storage.
- There are three shelves in the shed that provide a good base to keep things like plant pots and bottles.
- The shed can also be padlocked. Although you will have to buy it separately.
- There is a hatch in the roof, that gives a small amount of extra space.
- The shelves can be removed, depending on what you want to store inside the shed.
- The shed is relatively easy to put together and can be painted over easily if you want a different colour.
- However, even the original wooden texture is breath-taking, the panels are smooth and relatively sturdy for the price of .
- I would recommend only using this shelf to keep garden objects and light weight items as the shed is built from a slightly thin wood and is a little weaker compared to the other plastic shelves mentioned above.
- The roof is apexed, which provides ample protection and can survive a good number of years.
- I would recommend covering the wood with a coat of shed stain and wood preserver for sheds, although customers claim that the wood on the shed is extremely tolerant, extra protection will certainly not cause any harm.
- This is an excellent budget garden shed with a relatively good size:70in x251/2in x18in.
- It is also an incredible addition to beautify your garden space, and gives it a nice rustic feel.
