A Potting Shed Dream

Potting Shed

Through the gate and down a short path, a picturesque potting shed awaits. Designed as a focal point of the garden and serving as a practical work space, the rock-walled structure houses dreams, as well as tools.

Tucked beneath the shelter of a towering oak tree, designed with windows on three sides, and equipped with a Dutch door, the little building keeps the interior pleasantly cool. The wide shelves that wrap around the interior walls store gardening basics, as well as treasures from antiques shops and flea-market jaunts.

Perennials blooming in the shed’s permanent foundation planter add splashes of color to the muted earth tones of rock and brick. Annuals are tucked into the plant mix seasonally.

Filled with trowels, a short-handled rake, garden gloves, and fresh clippings, a handy basket is a necessity of both utility and beauty.

The charm of French enamel and dried hydrangeas in a weathered market basket complement the functionality of the generously sized shed.
