What’s a she-shed and can you have one?
At Town and Country Gardens, we love it when a new gardening term enters the dictionary – especially if it means new ideas for landscape gardening in Balham. When we started to hear the term ‘she-shed’ we had to investigate to find out more for you.
So what is it?
It turns out that a she-shed perfectly fits in with the ethos behind our landscape gardening in Balham. It’s a beautiful garden-building designed to add a new dimension to your life. It is supposed to suit the kind of pursuits, decorating styles and practicalities that are more often associated with women. We know plenty of men that wouldn’t mind an hour or two in a comfy, light-filled garden space as well but, she-shed is the popular term so we’re using it for now.
What are they used for?
Often, the purpose of a she-shed is to have a place of retreat in the garden. It’s a halfway house between the home and the outside. It can be very comfortable and stylish and will often have a terrace for sitting
