Having a great yard means having all the tools you need to maintain it. Unfortunately, these tools can’t all be kept inside the house, and that’s why the Lifetime® 15 x 8 garden building is the perfect addition to any backyard. Lifetime sheds 15x8 are notable for their durability. The 15x8 shed is perfect for storing all types of gardening tools along with outdoor activity items like kayaks, for example. When it comes to plastic sheds for sale, Lifetime storage sheds are at the top of most people’s lists.
Plastic garden sheds are the perfect way to store items that keep your lawn and garden looking great. Store pesticides, fertilizers, tools and much more, however, you’d like thanks to the customizable shelf settings. The height of the shed is perfect, you will not need to crouch down to enter and won’t hit your head on a roof truss. Thanks to these sheds, you will want to be working outside more.
What Separates Lifetime Sheds from Others?
Lifetime had reimagined how the outdoor shed should appear. Besides having a warm, welcoming plastic façade, the Lifetime shed also offers much in the way of function. The obvious places to start are the skylights and windows. The amount of natural light that comes into the shed keeps mold and mildew from forming because they need darkness to thrive. Furthermore, you won’t walk in the shed and need a flashlight to find things.
The construction of the shed is also a great advantage. These sheds are steel reinforced on the sides and the steel roof trusses make the entire structure stable. Once the shed is installed, it’s not going anywhere. These sheds can stand up to some serious storms and keep everything inside dry. The construction of the shed also allows you to install shelves and hooks wherever you’d like. This makes it easy to customize the shed to fit your gardening needs.
What Do You Need to Do to Install a Garden Building?
Whenever you are installing a backyard structure it is important to find out what is allowed to be installed. If you live in a suburban or urban community, the rules on sheds are far more delineated than they are in rural areas. In many rural areas, there are no restrictions on sheds. Make sure you check with the permitting office in your municipality before installing a shed.
Once you get the go-ahead, the next thing to do is install a platform. Sheds should be on a concrete platform. Lifetime includes the specifications for concrete in our instructions. You will know exactly how much to buy and what you need to do in order to install the right platform. Having the shed sitting on the ground is a great way for water and critter intrusion to happen.
After you get the platform set up, have a friend come over and help. This job takes about 9 hours, but getting it done is quite easy. The instructions are simple to follow, and installation is a breeze. With more people, it will take less time. Be sure to keep the parts organized.
Shed Storage 101
Make sure that there is plenty of space for you to move around in the shed. Put the larger items on the floor staggered so you can move around. Shelf height is critical too. Make sure the shelves are not too high to reach or too low that you are constantly bending. These sheds have great height, so use it.
Please check your local HOA, zoning laws and site dimensions for shed use and installation requirements. Site prep and foundation are required but not included. See link below for more details.
