Garden Buildings Direct’s 9 Best Garden Sheds

1. Best Garden Sheds: BillyOh Expert T&G Reverse Apex (Price: £1069.00)

BillyOh Expert Tongue and Groove Reverse Apex Workshop

The BillyOh Expert T&G Reverse Apex Workshop represents the perfect garden building if you have intentions of spending more time working in your garden. The abundance of space provided by this garden shed means that you’ll be more than capable of pursuing hobbies or DIY projects which previously weren’t feasible, due to a lack of space.

What’s more, this garden building can also be utilised as a means for garden storage. Thanks to the provided space, you’ll be able to comfortably fit all your essentials inside, including lawnmowers, bikes, garden tools and more!

A combination of strong construction and tongue and groove cladding (which allows two flat pieces of wood to be joined together, to create a single, strong piece) means that this is a highly durable shed would be an excellent addition for any garden able to house it.

Almost all of our garden sheds come available in a range of sizes, and it’s no different here. The sizes available on the Expert T&G Reverse Apex Workshop are:

  • 12 x 8 – £835.00
  • 12 x 10 – £1,069.00
  • 16 x 8 – £1,705.00
  • 16 x 10 – £1,260.00
  • 20 x 10 – £1,295.00

With such an extensive choice in this regard, finding the shed which is ideal for your needs is a near certainty.

2. Best Garden Sheds: BillyOh Expert T&G Apex (Price: £689.00)

BillyOh Expert Tongue and Groove Apex Workshop

What separates this shed from the one mentioned above is its style of roof. A typical apex shed can be distinguished from a reverse apex one as slopes form the V-shape down either side of the shed. Whereas in a reverse apex shed, the V-shape is formed by slopes down the front and back of the workshop.

The internal height provided by this roof in the BillyOh Expert Tongue and Groove Apex Workshop makes it an ideal hub of productivity, whether this be for storage, or as an area to pursue DIY projects, which would have been otherwise unfeasible.

To increase the longevity of this workshop, pressure treatment is a brilliant option. Pressure treatment involves dipping timber into tanks full of preservatives – until these chemicals are fully immersed in the wood. 

Going for this option will make your workshop more weather-resistant going forward. It may even save you money on wood maintenance in the long run!

Available sizes:

  • 10 x 8 – £689.00
  • 12 x 8 – £835.00
  • 12 x 10 – £1,045.00
  • 16 x 8 – £1,075.00
  • 16 x 10 – £1,225.00
  • 20 x 10 – £1,265.00

3. Best Garden Sheds: BillyOh Master T&G Apex Shed (Price: £315.00)

BillyOh Master Tongue and Groove Apex Shed

Designed with several customisable features, the BillyOh Master T&G Apex Shed serves as an ideal storage building with its robust and durable construction and range of optional extras. This shed is all about providing your family with a dependable storage shed for years to come.

The Master is built with endurance in mind, mostly thanks to the hard-wearing tongue and groove construction. T&G panels are excellent for providing weather resistance, keeping rainwater out and generally providing protection from the harshest UK weather. 

The rigidity is possible thanks to the panels which interlock to form the tongue and groove cladding, leaving no space for water penetration or weather damage.

The flooring can also be selected as T&G. This option is ideal for storing heavier items, or if you intend to use your shed as a workshop. Much like the vast majority of our wooden shed range, the BillyOh Master Tongue and Groove Apex Shed comes in a vast scope of sizes.

  • 8 x 6 (Pressure Treated – Edito’s Pick) – £555.00
  • 4 x 6 – £315.00

  • 10 x 6 – £555.00
  • 10 x 8 – £679.00
  • 12 x 8 – £759.00

4. Best Garden Sheds: BillyOh Keeper Overlap Apex (Price: £229.00)

BillyOh Keeper Overlap Apex Shed

The BillyOh Keeper Overlap Shed personifies the ideal starter shed which is suited to garden storage needs which don’t entirely extend to heavy-duty items and years of accumulated clutter. Instead, this shed is perfect for all of the standard items which you’d expect to find in an average garden setting.

The Keeper has been constructed with 7mm overlap panels, allowing it to embody a rustic aesthetic which is durable and eye-catching in equal measure. The sloped design of overlap panels allows rainwater to run off of them, without getting into the shed and ruining the contents within. 

Moreover, because overlap cladding doesn’t form a full seal on the walls, air ventilation is optimised, thus helping to keep rot and damp at bay. This garden shed can also be chosen in 13 unique sizes—four of which are pressure treated options while the other nine represent non-pressure treated sizes.

This extensive array of sizes to choose from virtually guarantees that if this shed is the one you’re gravitating towards, then you’ll be able to find the ideal size to match; one which is just perfect for your garden!

  • 8 x 6 (Pressure Treated – Editor’s Pick) – £380.00
  • 4 x 6 – £229.00
  • 8 x 6 – £289.00
  • 4 x 8 – £355.00
  • 10 x 6 – 420.00
  • 12 x 6 – 489.00
  • 8 x 8 – £495.00
  • 10 x 8 – £529.00
  • 12 x 8 – £555.00
  • 16 x 8 – £690.00

BillyOh Expert Tongue and Groove Pent Workshop

The BillyOh Expert Pent Workshop is a garden building which is both grand and contemporary, finding the perfect balance between practicality and aesthetic. 

This workshop is ideal for those with more extensive gardens and needs which stretch beyond that of smaller alternatives—whether these needs take the form of DIY pursuits or only storage.

Thanks to high eaves and ridges, the generous headroom provided by the Expert makes mobility within the shed incredibly easy, especially at the front, where the greatest height is offered. In addition, it allows you to store numerous items with ease. Wide-opening double doors make the often arduous task of transporting things in and out of your workshop a surprisingly comfortable job. 

When it comes to performing heavy-duty DIY tasks within your garden building, a base able to withstand such operations is essential, so purchasing a foundation on which your workshop can be reliably built is an additional extra we strongly advocate.

Available sizes:

  • 8 x 8 – £649.00
  • 10 x 8 – £769.00
  • 12 x 8 – £859.00
  • 16 x 8 – £1,135.00
