Our Story

WhatShed.co.uk started life out as the brainchild of an avid landscape gardener with over 20 years of experience in the business. After looking for a new and affordable shed online (he was looking for nice cheap sheds to keep his wheelie bin in) and then becoming totally overwhelmed with all the choices of sheds for sale and websites available, he knew there must be a better way: WhatShed.co.uk was borne.

WhatShed in now by far the largest independent buyers guide for garden buildings in the UK. If we laid out all of the products we currently have in our buyers guide, then they would take up over five and a half football fields. We alone have over 5,000 garden sheds and outdoor storage sheds, which alone would take up a full football field!! We have a LOT of sheds for sale; be they wooden sheds with over 4,030 sheds for sale, plastic sheds, with over 2,860 to choose from, or for the more security conscious we have 2,025 metal sheds for sale. We have the largest selection of garden sheds in the UK.
