Why Every Gardener Needs A Garden Shed
By: Hallidae Thomason


One of my all-time favorite hobbies is having a garden each year.
I think my love for gardening started when I was a little girl spending summers with my grandmother and helping her take care of her large vegetable and flower gardens.
I love the feeling of getting dirt in my fingernails and of seeing healthy vegetables and beautiful flowers grow from the tinest seeds.
My grandmother taught me a lot about life and about gardening during those summers.
One of the main things I remember her teaching me, however, was that every gardener needed a garden shed.

I thought this advice about a garden shed was a bit strange at first. In fact, I questioned my grandmother about it because I thought surely she had spoken wrong.
A garden shed?
Sure, they are great, but why would every gardener need one?
That was my question to my grandmother.

She answered my question about the need for a garden shed in the most magical and memorable way.
She walked me over to her special garden shed and brought me inside with her.
Once inside she began explaining all the different tools, seeds and fertilizers that she had in her garden shed.
I was quite amazed at everything my gram had in her garden shed.
It was really organized and she seemed to have a great reason for each thing she had in there.
She said that all gardeners will take more pride in their gardens if they have a special garden shed filled with everything they need to garden.

To make a long story short, I have since become very convinced that my grandmother's words are true about a garden shed.
The more I have gotten into gardening the more I have seen the truth that it requires a lot of tools and things to make a garden grow with success, and my garden shed is the perfect place to store everything for my garden.
Each year it seems like I grow my gardens a bit bigger and so each year my garden shed gets a little more filled with all of the right products and tools for each of my new attempts.

So if you are a gardener of if you are thinking about starting a garden for the first time, then I suggest you invest into a garden shed.
It will hold everything you need for your garden and allow you to take pride in the work of your hands.
