Roundup: 11 Irresistible Garden Sheds and Greenhouses

June 3, 2016

Although they’re inherently practical, there’s something luxurious about garden sheds and outbuildings. As extra spaces, they’re not required to meet the basic needs of a main home. As demonstrated here, a shed can really be whatever you want it to be.

Collected from the Gardenista Gallery of nearly 4,000 images, here are 11 of our favorite sheds and outbuildings:
