How to choose the right shed for you (Cladding)

Whether you’re looking for a small storage solution for your plants and pots or wanting to create your own personal workshop, Forest Garden has sheds in a variety of shapes, sizes and construction. In this post we will be talking about Shed Cladding, possibly one of the most important factors to take in when buying a shed. Cladding is the timber board that forms the structure of a shed. These boards are dip or pressure treated in order to protect the shed against water damage and rot.


Overlap cladding is your basic shed build. The overlap construction is made up of rough sawn boards that overlap each other allowing for flexibility, movement and ventilation. The overlapping feature also allows for water run-off keeping your shed and its contents dry.

At Forest we offer a wide range of Overlap Sheds and Workshops in dip and pressure treatment.
