What to Consider before Building Garden Sheds:
- A good estimate of the space for adequate storage along with a little extra room for odds and ends that invariably turn up.
- A place for a decent sized potting bench.
- The slope of the ground to plan the drainage system.
- Overhead rafters for hanging trailing plants and orchids.
- Checking with the authorities to confirm what the largest size of the sheds can be without needing a separate permit. It will vary from one place to the other, as per the law.

If you have a particular budget in mind for the shed and prefer to spend more on the plants and seeds with an eye to the future, you can go in for homemade and metal shades. These are within bounds and once you have something to build upon, you can always go in for the better garden sheds later, which include plastic sheds and wooden ones.
