Mercia Garden Products: A quick overview
Mercia Garden Products have been in business for quite some time now and they are one of the larger brands out there. It is impossible not to be impressed when you see the picture on their website of their giant site that is over 20 acres in size and quite the site to behold. They specialise in timber products and they seem to really pride themselves on their quality. With over 300,000 orders per year, they are certainly a retailer that is in high demand. Many retailers such as Shed Store and Homebase carry a great selection of Mercia Garden Products.

Mercia Garden Products: What Kind Of Products Are In The Mercia Garden Products Range?
To start our Mercia Garden Products review off, we felt that it was best to take a look at the different kinds of products that Mercia Garden Products produces. Timber may seem what Mercia are all about, but they do also have products made from plastic and metal so they are a very well rounded brand. They have a few different categories which we are going to look at starting with their sheds. When you click sheds, you can choose between wooden, plastic, metal and garden workshops. We love just how many different shapes and styles they have. For example, if you do not have a whole lot of space then something like their 4 X 6 Value Shiplap Shed would be perfect for you. But if you are looking for something a little larger as you have more tools than your local B&Q, then they have some much larger products like their very impressive 10 X 10 Premium Shiplap Workshop. One thing we have to tell you is that Mercia Garden Products have some of the largest garden structures we have seen. They have a workshop that is an incredible 20 X 10! So you could fit a ton of stuff in here or just use it as a place to hide out from your other half when you are in the bad books.
It is not just sheds that they have in good supply here. One of the things that really caught our eye was their Children’s Play section. Here they have some truly awesome playhouses and play frames that your kids or grandkids are going to love. While the designs of the playhouses were great, we loved how some of them had additional play features such as slides and swings. One thing we have to talk about in this Mercia Garden Products review is their outdoor buildings. Here you can look at summerhouses, log cabins and even garages and let us tell you that some of their summerhouses and log cabins look so good that you will probably want to spend more time in here than in your actual house. Mercia Garden Products may not be as stacked as some of the other brands that we have seen, but we are very impressed with the garden buildings that they do have and there is still a great selection here. They also carry a number of fantastic accessories such as bases for your sheds, shelving, arbours, garden seating and even paint.
Mercia Garden Products: How Is The Quality
When it comes to the quality, Mercia Garden Products is a brand that offer pretty much something for everyone. We really like this as if you do want something cheap, cheerful and quick then they have this. For example, when you look at their wooden sheds, you can choose to look at their value range which is made with materials that are a little more modest, budget priced and not quite as high quality as some of their other products. We are not saying that this types of products are poor quality, but they are made with materials that let Mercia keep the price down.
As soon as we started this Mercia Garden Products review, we knew that one thing we were going to be telling you about was the overall high quality that they are going for. They really like to tell you about how they use high quality timber and some of their higher end products like their log cabins, children’s playhouses and premium sheds really have been made with the very best materials. When you have a look at some of the different retailers who offer Mercia Garden Products, you will see that from the customer reviews for the most part people are impressed with the overall quality. This does not just go for the higher end items as one of their best reviewed products is their 6 X 4 Overlap Shed which can be purchased most places for around £200. Of course there will always be the odd product that gets shipped out that has slipped through the quality control with and issue or two, but for the most part we are impressed with the quality of the products that Mercia are offering.
Mercia Garden Products: How Are The Products Priced?
This is the part of our Mercia Garden Products review where we tell you how their products are priced. When you first look at the Mercia website, you may think that all they offer is high end sheds, summerhouses and other garden buildings as the site has a very high quality and professional design to it, but actually there are some great budget priced Mercia products out there. This is especially true for their sheds as you can get a decent sized Mercia shed for £200 to £300, which considering the materials used and the size is very decent. A great example of this is the Mercia Light Brown Overlap Apex Wooden Shed which is 8 X 6 and is available for just over £200. They even have some larger products that will not break the bank such as a larger model of that shed which is 10 X 6 and will not cost you all that much more. While you may have to do a little looking around, if you do have a more modest or strict budget then you will be able to find a Mercia shed for a very good price.
While they do have quite a few budget priced sheds they do also have more higher end ones as well. We must say that when it comes to other garden buildings like, summerhouses, playhouses and log cabins that Mercia Garden Buildings seem to be more focused on higher end products. We are not putting them down for this at all as some of their summerhouses and log cabins are truly incredible with a great design and materials that are going to give you years and years of use. One of the best examples of this is their amazing Mercia Corner Lodge Plus, which is a huge log cabin that has been made with the very best materials, but it does have a price tag of over two thousand pounds. Which we know sounds like a lot, but when a product is this large and this well made that is the kind of price you are always going to have to pay. Now not all the Mercia high end products will cost you thousands of pounds, but if you do want one of their more spectacular products then you are going to have to pay for it. But with how well made they are and how great they look, we feel that saving up a little longer or just treating yourself is not the worst idea we have ever heard. And we are sure you would be very happy with the summerhouse, log cabin or whatever it was you bought when it is standing in your garden.
Mercia Garden Products: How Customisable Are Mercia Garden Products?
This part of our Mercia Garden Products review is a little bit trickier for us to talk about as some garden building retailers who offer Mercia sheds, summerhouses and other products will offer all kinds of extras and options. Whereas some others will not really offer anything. The actual Mercia website when you click on one of their products will suggest a few items that would go well with that particular product. For example, if you click on a shed then Mercia will suggest things like a pad bolt, wood treatment or even some kind shelving. As most of their products are mainly comprised of timber then really you can paint them in any way you want with some wood treatment.
Mercia Garden Products: Our Final Thoughts
So we have come to the end of our Mercia Garden Products review. For the most part this is a brand that is very impressive. They have a huge site to manufacture all their products and with over 100 employees they have a large staff to make sure that their products are out the door in a speedy manner. Speaking of the products, Mercia have far more different styles of sheds, summerhouses, playhouses and greenhouses than we first thought. While they may seem at first like a retailer who just has high end products they do have some great priced budget sheds and other structures as well as their more higher priced, large and higher quality products. This is a brand that is well worth having a look at when you are in the market for a new shed, summerhouse or something else for your garden.
