Shed options for a small backyard

In Australia we generally use the garage for the car,but, it can also double as a storage area, or even a workshop, but if you don’t HAVE a garage, or your garage is full, you still need a home for all the garden tools, lawn mower, trimmer, shovels etc.etc.etc.

Even if you only have a small backyard because you live in a villa or duplex, there still is a garden shed that’s perfect for you.

Choosing a garden shed in Sydney isn’t as simple as people think, a shed is more than just a storage space in the backyard, it’s there to serve a purpose. If you don’t have a lot of money to spend, you don’t want to waste in on a shed that’s not going to do what you want it to do – you want a small shed that will fit in your yard and will hold everything you want it to.

Getting the best shed for your money

  • • Look for a local supplier of garden shed Sydney, one who offers a range of sheds at an affordable price.
  • • When you buy locally you have more choice to find the shed that’s the right size for your yard.
  • • Do you want a cement base? If you are renting, you probably just want the shed placed straight on the ground, if however, you own your home a cement foundation is the best option as you can anchor the shed to it.
  • • What size shed do you need, or rather what space do you have for the shed to fit into? A small backyard shed is perfect you can clear out some of your garage or put away some of the backyard mess, or you can organise all your gardening tools and supplies in one place.
  • • A backyard shed, regardless of its size can be an investment for your home and property value, and it’s a useful place for you to store those garden tools.


Small sheds come in a range of sizes, and include a shed with no back, that is placed directly against the side of your house, so your house becomes the back wall, the good thing about this style of shed is, it actually saves you a few more millimetres as the shed is direct to the wall, rather than having the back wall next to your house. Single door sheds are not as wide, and again cut down on space, still giving you plenty of access but without the width. Flat roof sheds are generally smaller than those with a gable roof, and, if you are looking to cut down on height a flat roof shed is the perfect option, it won’t detract from your view – or your neighbours and is great if you want to place it against a wall that’s near a window.

  • I just want to advise you of the terrific service one of your shed builders provided to us when last week he built the shed we ordered through your Penrith office. Dave and his young helper provided first class workmanship, he was very polite, and the clean up was a pleasure compared to most other tradesmen. We are soon going to order a further shed via Penrith and I have no hesitation in recommending your products. Thank you Dave, and thank you to Col Western Sheds.

  • Thank you to all at Col Western Sheds for your excellent service. From the time I made a weekend telephone enquiry, place a telephone order for a shed early the following week, received by email a diagram and quote, received advice of expected delivery time and took delivery at exactly the promised time from friendly helpful delivery men, I received outstanding service

  • I would like to thank you very much for helping us so promptly with our bird aviary. There was a lot of discussion between the doves on returning to their new cage, but they have now settled in again very happily !! We really appreciate the hurry you gave us the order. Thank you very very much

  • Just letting you know that I received my shed even earlier than advised. It is so good to deal with a company that values it’s customers and delivers on ALL of it’s promises. I loved the ease of use of the web site along with the easy to find prices. I received great service at the Penrith Store when i went in to make my purchase. Fabulous communications re my purchase, and delivery well above my expectations. The product ain’t half bad either
