New deal sees Posh Sheds available to garden centre customers for the first time


A new deal with Van Hage will see beautifully hand-crafted sheds from The Posh Shed Company available to garden centre customers.

The partnership sees the Posh Shed Company’s Tin Hat range becoming available in Van Hage’s Chenies branch in Buckinghamshire.

Richard Frost, managing director of The Posh Shed Company, commented: “This is an exciting, new direction for us. Our sheds have previously only been available exclusively from us, and installed by our expert team. With over 60 years of experience at the cutting edge of garden and leisure retailing, Van Hage provides the perfect opportunity for us to launch our first ever range of self-build sheds that customers can install at home.”

The Tin Hat sheds were launched in 2017 and quickly became one of The Posh Shed Company’s most popular ranges to date. The Tin Hat sheds are a throwback to war-time Britain when practicality was paramount, and is designed to appeal to those seeking a traditional shed – solid, yet understated in appearance and built to a standard which will guarantee years of practical service.

There are two designs to choose from in the Tin Hat range. The curved roof of ‘The Anderson’ and the traditional lean-to, ‘The Gardener’. Both are made of tanalised timber which ensure long term protection against the elements, the window frames and solid door are finished in a durable stain with sturdy bolt locks.

The Gardener can even be extended should storage requirements grow, due to its practical modular design. The innovative design of the Gardener allows individual configurations of the shed based upon the space and needs of each garden. Each module measures 4ft 10in x 3ft 6in and be combined to create a shed of almost any length. The Gardener also has the further modular option of additional windows and external shelving.

Alongside the Gardener, is ‘The Anderson’, which is designed to appeal to those seeking a traditional shed, solid yet understated in appearance and built to a standard to guarantee years of service. It is available in two sizes; 2m x 1m or a deeper 2m x 2m option.
