The surface area of the roof is about 160 square feet. “There’s also a bike station around the back where I repair my bike,” Bird says. “The majority of the structure is simple in principle,” he adds. “You just have to make sure it’s structurally sound and waterproof.” He made the shed watertight using felt, which works as a waterproof membrane. He says the roof joists on the shed had to be extra tight to support the weight of the garden.

Rustic by Chris Snook Chris Snook SaveEmail Bird included an efficient drainage and watering system. “The water comes off the roof into a channel and then goes into a downpipe, which waters plants on the way down,” he describes. It’s then collected in a barrel. The plants under the pipe are in bags held upright in a frame. He rotates the plant selection; at the moment he has rosemary, jasmine and thyme in there, as well as some ivy, “to make it more green,” he says.
