Cladding materials soften shed for garden finalist

Cladding materials soften shed for garden finalist A finalist in the 2010 Daily Mail National Gardening Competition explains how cladding materials allowed her garden shed to blend into the rest of the design for her outdoor space.

Decorative artist Georgia Lindsay tells the news provider that her shed was the first thing she installed after moving into her home, using softwood cladding materials to help hide it.

Natural materials are used throughout her 20 ft by 25 ft south-west facing garden, with a hardwood boardwalk and sunken limestone seating area.

'We waited a year before working on it, which allowed us to see how the light moves around the garden [and] work out the best place for a seating area and where to plant screens,' she says.

The Daily Mail claims that entries for this year's competition have been 'outstanding' despite harsh weather conditions in recent months, with six contenders remaining to fight it out for the title.
