Metal or Wood

If the cheapest Garden Shed is what you are after, then the cheapest Garden sheds tend to be the metal type Garden shed but we have included some wooden Garden Sheds also in the mix for those of you who prefer a wooden Shed over a metal Garden Shed. Even though the metal sheds are lower priced, there is also the advantage that you don’t need to worry about wood eating insects when choosing a metal garden shed.

The disadvantage then is that the cheapest metal Garden Sheds don’t tend to come with any floors as the ground surface be it tarmac or concrete acts as the actual floor surface (making it cheaper again for you the end consumer)

Tools for Assembly

As a guide, the types of tools required when taking on the build of these Garden sheds are a Philips head cordless drill and a Philips head screwdriver as well as a small 6ft to 8ft step ladder. You should make sure to use durable heavy duty gloves especially when assembling metal garden sheds and have a measuring tape to ensure all the parts match up in their exact frame locations.

Lay out all the parts into their separate sections and plan to build on a solid surface such as concrete or tarmac. One last tool that will come in handy is a carpenters square so make sure to have all the tools in place prior to assembly so that it can be completed as quickly as possible.

Price Guides

As guide prices can only be published at the time of this review, please make sure to view the price checkers provided below which will help ensure you have the most accurate up to date price information.

After completing this review list of cheap Garden Sheds for the people of Scotland, we hope you found this researched review useful in some small way and perhaps given you some ideas to think about. We have included both metal and wood Garden Sheds so it really depends on how much you have to spend at the end of the day.

If you want the absolute cheapest price, then the earlier metal Garden sheds outlined above without the floor foundations will do the trick for you and if you want the cheapest wooden Garden Shed, then you really are looking at the smaller frame sizes of just 6ft by 4ft so there will be limitations when it comes to storage capabilities.

Either way, best of luck with your final decision and thanks for taking the time to visit our review list which hopefully can save you some money in he process. Further shed option, prices, review and images can be checked out below
