Ready, Set, GROW!

We transformed our lonely shed, abandoned at the edge of a gravel driveway into a food source and cozy retreat from the summer sun.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Although getting rid of the expanse of gravel and adding visual interest were the couple's main motivations, Joseph and Robin both love to garden and wanted a space for growing their favorite plants. Joseph is Italian and loves to plant tomatoes, cucumbers and basil. Robin wanted a special spot for shade-tolerant plants. Creating a lush haven around this 12-foot by 16-foot shed was the perfect solution.
