Standing the Test of Time
When gardeners embark on the search for a new shed, they will be looking for three key aspects; great quality, eye-catching design, and practicability.
The Posh Shed Company has been designing and creating bespoke sheds and backdoor stores for many years – and its products really do stand the test of time.
Posh customers, Phil and Sue Power from Ashford, purchased their Gothic Shed in the autumn of 2010 – making it one of the oldest Posh Sheds in the company’s customer portfolio.
The couple, who are avid gardeners, chose this traditional-looking shed as they were keen to include eye-catching features in their garden, after embarking on a major renovation project.
Mr Power said: “When we were redesigning our garden in 2008, we were on the hunt for a striking building to include features. We heard about The Posh Shed Company initially through an advertisement and then saw its Gothic design online. We found this shed to be particularly striking and attractive.”
The Gothic Shed has an elegant, traditional design with detailed gothic arches within the door and window frames. It is available in a choice of six finishes, meaning it can either blend beautifully into

The Posh Shed Company supports Dementia Week
The health benefits of gardening are widely reported. However, one area that is often overlooked is the positive impact that gardening can have on the lives of those with dementia.
The Alzheimer’s Society has carried out extensive work looking into the benefits of gardening for those living with Alzheimer’s. Gardening can be an enriching experience and contact with nature promotes wellbeing, reduces stress and lowers blood pressure – all contributing factors to the severity of the disease.
The multi-sensory stimulation of gardening and just simply being near plants has been linked with prompting memories and boosting enjoyment which can benefit those with dementia.
Supporting Alzhemier Society:
To support the work of Alzheimer’s Society, helping those with dementia to be more involved in gardening and to help them feel comfortable getting back out in the garden; The Posh Shed Company have agreed to donate 5% of the price of every Southwold Shed purchased in “Forget Me Not” blue to the charity’s ‘Forget Me Not’ campaign.
Inspired by the traditional coastal design with a small covered veranda, The Southwold is built with our unique triple wall construction and fully weatherproof walls, floor and roof.

To help customers come up with their dream Posh Shed, we have launched a brand new online 360 degree shed visualiser. This gives the potential purchaser the option to bring different combinations of sheds to life by selecting the style, size, the door and window positioning, the glazing type, the roof finish, and even the colour of the hinges and handles.
The creation is priced up and gives the customer the option to place the order there and then; another first for The Posh Shed Company. The Posh Shed can then be ordered and paid for anytime of the day or night and from the comfort of your home.
We know that for many of our customers, a Posh Shed is a real investment that they have considered, or even dreamt of, for years. Many customers receive them as birthday or anniversary gifts and one couple even enquired for a wedding present! Because of this we want to do all we can to make everything as perfect as possible - which is why we have launched the new visualiser to help people imagine the end product.
The Posh Shed Company has also announced a new self-build option and this, combined with new visualiser tool and a simplified purchasing process, reinforces our mission to make owning a quality, handcrafted Posh Shed a reality.

Winter is often an ebb in a gardener’s year. The days of spring planting with a sense of anticipation are gone, as are the long, hot days of sitting for hours in the sunshine enjoying the fruits of your labour. One thing that can help make the short, dark days of winter pass more quickly is the thought of what next year’s garden will look like and beginning the planting process.
The Posh Shed Company has teamed up with award-winning garden designer Claudia de Yong, to look to 2019 and offer predictions for what we expect to see from the gardening world next year.
We’re predicting brighter colours making a comeback. In recent times there has been a tendency for people to pick pastels and muted tones for their sheds but bold colours are coming back in. We think pinks, greens and blues are going to be popular. I think we’ll continue to see the shed trend grow online and on social media - we have many Posh Shed fans online who love to see the beautiful gardens and many customers keep in touch online after installation to show us what they do with their sheds.
Claudia backs this up, “Coloured foliage on shrubs in the garden is becoming popular again as is painting sheds, fencing and furniture in soft pinks, blues and mint green. With a move in the industry away from using plastics, we will see more retro pastel shades in recycled materials and bamboo hanging planters.”
“The trend over this past year in the gardening world, and one I see continuing, is the rise in people, notably millennials, using social media sites such as Instagram. As more people are renting, indoors has become the new outdoors and posting images online has helped to make plants, especially houseplants, trendy again. Plants that were once popular like Pelargoniums (often referred to as Geraniums) are also making a comeback as they add a splash of colour and are easy to maintain and grow both indoors and outdoors.”
Earlier this year we launched a new range called Back Door Stores to offer a storage solution to those with less space. We anticipate this will continue and predict an increase in the popularity of the Allotment Shed which allows a space to grow your own on top of the storage area. This is something which Claudia also sees potential in for next year: “I believe we will see a growth in home grown produce as more people try to cultivate a heathier lifestyle to reconnect with the natural world. Growing herbs and plants suitable for drinks and cocktails has been very popular and the I think dwarf varieties of popular plants, especially those that are bee and pollinator friendly, will feature more as they can be grown in pots on balconies and planted in smaller urban gardens.”
