'Peterborough' Solar Potting Garden Sheds For Your Garden
This traditional solar garden potting shed is an old favorite and like all the Sapphire range is well built and designed to last. Besides the large expanse of glass on the front, which allows light to flood in, there are also windows in the side as well and an opening window is included as standard. When this potting shed's opening window is utilised with the stable door you can get a nice flow of air throughout the building which can encourage growth. This is the sort of garden shed which can be utilised or shared by all members of your family which can only be a good thing these days. Included as standard, besides the opening window and stable door is a very useful slatted bench situated under the shed window.
Solar Potting Sheds Designed for Long Life
The clever design of these solar potting shed enables you to make the most of your 'green fingers' and will help you grow delicious fruit and vegetables for your family. Being soundly constructed with a sturdy 50x38mm (nominal) frame and made from slow growing redwood deal timber, rather than the cheaper and less resilient whitewood, will ensure a long and useful life from this great shed. Whilst whitewood will do the job in the short term you can't beat using the right materials for the job in the first place. And do you want a a building which 'will just do?'
These 'Peterborough' Garden Potting Sheds are Built With Solid Timber Throughout
When making these garden potting sheds was decided the choice of 'proper' timber was high on the agenda. This means that all the timber should be fully T&G timber throughout. This ensures the strongest strength possible which in itself ensures a long life for the building. Materials such as chipboard or OSB board, loved by cheap garden shed manufacturers, were not given the 'time of day' and has never been used on this range. A very wise decision and even more importantly where the floor and roof is concerned. These two areas are greatest at risk by using the wrong materials. Proper T& G timber should be the order of the day on your new solar garden potting shed if you want it to stand the test of time.

How To Ensure Shed or Summer House Door is Right for You
The garden shed or summer house door needs to be designed to work for a very long time so it is important it is made correctly. You will find decent shed and summer house manufacturers take their responsibilities seriously and will ensure they will stand the test of time.
As well as the importance of having ledges AND braces on the garden shed door it is important to have THREE hinges as this will help to transmit the weight of the shed door across and onto the door frame. If there is only two then the door may bulge slightly in the middle. With a joinery made door then only two hinges are required as the weight of the shed door is supported by the jointed frame.
There are various ways for the garden shed door to be kept closed. The very minimum you want is to have a pad bolt with a turn buckle top and bottom on your door. The pad bolt is a sliding bolt and when closed you can put your padlock onto it to protect your valuables. The turn buckle is simply a flat piece of metal with a hole in the middle. This is screwed onto the garden shed frame and when turned will hold the shed door tightly into position. This will help to stop any movement on the door when there are large changes in weather conditions through the year. - Continue reading --
