Perfect for placing against a wall or fence, this 5×8 Lotus Lean-to Heritage Green Shed is a high quality garden storage solution offering you the highest specification for lightweight metal sheds on the market. The Lotus range of garden sheds is the final result of two years of research and development to produce metal sheds which are stronger, more durable and easier to build but still excellent value. This garden shed is manufactured from hot-dipped galvanised steel throughout for an incredibly sturdy and robust build. Unlike traditional wooden garden sheds, this lean-to requires minimal if any maintenance and is rust, rot and rodent proof – saving you time and money. A 10 year warranty supports this premium quality construction.

Where your space is limited, this lean-to provides you with a compact garden storage solution whilst still offering first-rate build. In traditional heritage green, this attractive shed is sure to complement your garden. The ventilated gables combat condensation and improve airflow. Even the door and track are designed for strength and simplicity.  Plus, for even more convenience, the door can be placed at either end of the shed to suit your garden and storage needs. To make assembly easier for you, the innovative design means significantly fewer parts. With a detailed instruction manual and informative online video, assembly is quicker and easier.

If you do not have an existing level base, you will require a Timber Floor Base Kit OR a Metal Foundation Kit. Please read the section below on choosing between the two kits. You will NOT need to purchase both. 10 year warranty
Heaviest gauge, hot dipped galvanised steel in its category
No maintenance required
Innovative design for quicker assembly
Door can be added to either end of the shed

Understanding Shed Bases for Lotus ShedsYour shed base should be constructed on level ground on top of damp proof membrane.What is the Timber Floor Base Kit?

This a pressure treated timber base frame – placed on top of your damp proof membrane – which acts as a base for your shed. The kit includes pre-cut boards, completing the base and acting as a timber floor for your shed. You will need to ensure that the base frame is placed on a reliably level surface.You should then anchor your shed to the base. Hilti screws for this task are available to purchase via the Options tab.What is the Metal Foundation Kit?This is a steel grid – placed on top of your damp proof membrane – which you can either fill with concrete to act as a base or cover with suitable plywood to create a floor.

The concrete or plywood is not supplied.You must then anchor your shed to the base. Hilti screws for this task are available to purchase via the Options tab.I have an existing concrete or slab base. Do I need to buy one of these kits? No, you do not need to buy a kit. To minimise condensation, ideally your existing base will have been constructed on top of a damp proof membrane. You will need to anchor your shed to your hard surface. Hilti screws for this task are available to purchase via the options tab.Should I buy both kits?No. These kits cannot be used together.
