To help prepare you for what you will find in the Home Depot shed range, here's a review of the main lines available:
Home Depot offer a wide variety of plastic sheds, with prices ranging from $200 to $2000. At the most economical end is the portable flower house which is a pop-up shed that can be put together in around 10 minutes. It has a spring steel frame, almost like a tent, that folds back into a carry case when you're not using it. It comes with flooring, is UV resistant and has tie downs to make it more weather resistant. If you need an extremely cheap and easy storage solution, this shed could be for you but bear in mind it won't win any awards for adding style to your garden!
One of the most popular sheds available from Home Depot is the US Leisure 10' x 8' shed, which is priced at $1388. It has a steel frame for strength and its walls are treated with extra resin for durability. It's very low maintenance and has a high pitched roof for extra head space. Assembly should take only a few hours, but do prepare it with a good base of concrete or wood for extra stability.
Home Depot offer 94 sheds made from wood, which is a huge range to choose from. If you're looking to add some character and style to your backyard then a wooden shed can really add that finishing touch. They stock all the major brands, with a particularly large collection of Handy Home sheds at a good price, as well as Star Lumbar and Home Place Structures.
If you're looking for durability at a low cost, then the range of metal sheds at Home Depot is worth checking out. The metal sheds that they stock are from Arrow sheds, which are made from rust-resistant steel and come in easy-assemble kits that most people find very simple to use. What's particularly good about this range is that they are made from steel that has been treated to look like a wood grain, meaning you have a wooden looking finish without all the hassle of painting and treating every year.
