The 5 Most Popular 6 x 4 Plastic Sheds

Now you have a good idea of what you should be looking for when shopping for a 6 x 4 plastic shed, here are five of the most popular models available for your consideration.

1. Keter Factor Large 4 x 6 ft. Garden Storage Shed

Inexpensive Yet Functional Storage

KETER Factor Large 4 x 6 ft. Resin Outdoor Backyard Garden Storage Shed

Keter is one of the better-known brands of resin sheds and offers a pretty wide range of sizes. They are also one of the more affordable brands and in general give you more than you are paying for in terms of quality.

Being a 4 x 6 shed, you aren't going to have room for a riding lawn mower, but then this shed is not really made for that anyway. However, there is plenty of room for your garden tools, kids' toys, and extra junk you don't want to clutter the garage up with.

pros

cons

This shed is the perfect size for small spaces in your backyard. Surprisingly though, is that despite its small footprint, there is plenty of usable room inside

The roof lacks the support needed for heavy loads of wet leaves or snow and will bow if you do not take the time to keep it swept off

The instruction manual is well thought out and detailed making it possible to assemble the shed in around 3 hours or less

The roof design makes for a poor fit that needs to be caulked or it might leak

The resin material used is of very high quality and seems to be very durable

Walls and roof are made of honeycomb plastic that some might find a bit flimsy

2. Suncast BMS6310D 6-Feet by 3-Feet Shed

Tiny but Still Highly Useful

SUNCAST BMS6310D 6-Feet by 3-Feet Shed

Suncast is another very popular brand of plastic shed, this one is a bit smaller than most at only 6 x 3. However, if all you need is somewhere to store your garden tools, you probably don't need much more space than this anyway.

The one thing that truly sets this plastic shed apart is that it is 6 feet wide by 3 feet deep, which is a bit uncommon in this size range. The double doors offer plenty of room to get in and out while the reinforced floor lets you store heavier items inside.

pros

cons

Double wall resin panels for added strength make this shed a good choice for windy regions and add extra security

The slightly smaller size seriously limits the types of things you can store inside. Despite the double doors, you still can't park a riding lawn mower inside.

Steel reinforced roof panels make this shed a better choice if you have low overhanging trees or experience a lot of snow in the winter

The snap together assembly may not offer enough strength if you live in an area with high winds

The narrow depth lets you put this shed in cramped locations or up against a wall of your house without it getting in the way

Instructions do not say you have to install the roof supports first. If you try to add them later, you will find yourself taking the roof back off

3. Keter Manor Large 4 x 6 ft. Garden Storage Shed

Room for your Mower and More

KETER Manor Large 4 x 6 ft. Resin Outdoor Backyard Garden Storage Shed

At a full 4 x 6, the Manor offers plenty of room for your lawnmower, garden tools, and more. Made of Keter's own brand of plastic resin, this shed will never rot, rust, dent, or peel.

It also won't succumb to the effect of heat or cold and offers you a total of 113.2 cubic feet of usable storage space. What a great way to get rid of the clutter in your garage and open up space so you can park your car in it instead.

The Manor is perfect for all of your storage needs.

pros

cons

Gable ventilation lets out the fumes and smells from things like your lawn mower or weed trimmer

Despite its size, the Manor only has a single door that is not big enough for a riding lawn mower

Has a single fixed window that lets in natural light so you don't have to install any kind of lighting

There are no pre-drilled holes in the panels, you have to drill them yourself as you assemble the shed

Superior quality and heavy duty resin materials make the Manor a very good deal for your money

The corrugated resin parts seem to be flimsy but only until your shed is fully assembled

4. Rubbermaid Plastic Large Outdoor Storage Shed

Great for Storing Larger Items

RUBBERMAID Large Outdoor Storage Shed,159 cu. ft., Sandalwood with Onyx Roof 

If you are in the market for a plastic shed for your backyard, this slightly oversized shed from Rubbermaid is just what you need. The inside dimensions are 52" wide by 72" deep by 72" high, making it one of the biggest in the 4 x 6 class.

Unlike the Keter Manor, this one offers true double-wall construction and a heavy-duty impact resistant floor that can handle the weight of your riding lawn mower and more.

A great choice for those who need a lot of storage space in a shed that won't rust, rot, or fall prey to the kids kicking soccer balls against it.

pros

cons

The use of heavy duty impact resistant plastic makes this one of the strongest and most durable sheds in its class

Due to the design, this shed is going to take two people to put it together in a reasonable amount of time

Double doors mean you can park your riding lawn mower inside and the heavy duty floor is made to handle the weight

The metal frame and screws all tend to rust in a very short time frame. You will need to paint the frames and replace the screws with stainless steel ones to avoid having this problem

Instructions are well laid out and easy for anyone, even a beginner, to follow

The doors do not stay closed in windy conditions unless you have a padlock in place, but why wouldn't you lock your shed anyway?

5. Suncast BMS7400 Resin Storage Shed

Simple, Attractive, and Quite Functional

Suncast BMS7400 Resin Storage Shed

The Cascade is another excellent plastic shed from Suncast and features heavy duty double wall construction for added strength and durability.

The shingle style roof panels are reinforced with metal reinforcement for added strength. The double doors not only have windows in them, but they also feature lockable metal handles for improved security.

The interlocking pieces make the Cascade one of the easier 4 x 6 plastic sheds to assemble, perfect for the inexperienced builder.

pros

cons

Interlocking pieces not only make the Cascade easy to assemble, but also create a strong finished product

If you don't have the base perfectly level, the doors may not line up or stay closed properly

Can be assembled in less than 5 hours by one or two people quite easily

Some of the assembly holes do not line up properly, making assembly of certain parts difficult

Priced well below some of its competitors yet offers higher overall quality

The instruction manual is poorly laid out, making it hard to follow
