The 10 Cheapest Plastic Garden Sheds Online

The 10 Cheapest Plastic Garden Sheds Online

Plastic Garden Sheds in Yard Setting

These cheap plastic garden sheds will surely fit your budget...

WHEN YOU START searching for a shed to put out in your backyard, one of the first things you are likely to notice (or at least for me it was), is that there are so many to choose from.

This leads to a lot of questions ranging from what size, do you order a kit or a complete ready to use shed, what materials should your shed be made from?

From then most expensive wooden sheds to the cheapest plastic sheds, there are plenty of high quality sheds to choose from.

Today we are looking at several of the top low-cost plastic sheds on the market.

1. Suncast BMS6810D Everett Storage Shed 6 X 8

Let the Sun Shine In


SUNCAST BMS6810D Everett Storage Shed

If you are planning to add a shed to your garden or backyard as a place to get away from it all or an art studio, the Everett might be just what you are looking for.

Not only does the Everett offer a window on each side of the shed, it also comes with a built-in skylight for even more natural lighting.

If you live in an area where it snows a lot, you will find the steel reinforced roof panels are more than up to the job.

All of the panels are designed to be bolted together for added strength and are made from one of the toughest plastic resins on the market.

When you add in double doors, you can't go wrong with this spacious shed with its reinforced floor.



Short assembly time, approx. 2 hours even for someone with little to no experience

Lots of brackets to figure out during assembly which can be confusing and slow down the process

Very stable thanks to the double wall construction, which is good for windy/snowy climates

Some parts are not labeled with part numbers, again this can slow down assembly

Bolt together assembly instead of snap fit adds to the overall strength

Some sheds are shipped with the wrong parts and customer service is rated as poor

2. Suncast BMS7400 Molded Resin Storage Shed

Heavy-Duty Walls for Added Strength


The Cascade is another exceptional low-cost plastic shed from Suncast. This shed is built with double side walls for added durability and strength, ideal for colder areas with plenty of snow.

Topping it off is a shingle-style plastic roof that has been reinforced with steel for added load carrying capacity. Each of the double doors has a window and metal handles for added security.

The panels are designed to interlock instead of requiring you to spend hours putting it together with nuts and bolts. This may be one of the simplest plastic sheds on the market to put together and is a good choice for anyone without construction experience.



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 properly

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

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

3. Keter Factor Large 8 x 11 ft. Resin Outdoor Shed

Low-Cost, Easy to Assemble, Spacious, the Perfect Blend


Inside the multiple boxes containing your Keter Factor shed is everything you are going to need to put together this spacious 8 x 11 shed. As long as you have a little building experience, you should be able to put this handy shed together in an afternoon.

Despite being one of the cheapest plastic sheds in its class, the Factor comes with a plastic floor that doesn't need a foundation for support.

If you live in an area where it rains a lot, you are so to love the extended roofline.

Your neighbors and HOA are sure to appreciate the natural wood-like texture. The snap-together design makes it easy for the least experienced builder to put this shed together.



Easy to assemble in an afternoon with a minimum of tools and experience

Snap together assembly is a very tight fit, you may need to use Vaseline or some other form of silicone lube to help snap the pieces together

Doors have double handle that can be secured using a padlock

Holes and some parts have excess flashing that has to be removed

Can be placed directly on the ground as it has a built in plastic floor

Plastic floor has a lot of give which may not be suitable for heavy load storage unless you are willing to add a wood or concrete foundation

4. Keter Manor Large 4 x 6 ft. Resin Garden Shed

Much More Room on the Inside


At 113.2 cubic feet of space, the Keter Manor is one of the most spacious 4 x 6-foot plastic sheds on the market today.

Inside you will find tons of room for garden tools, a lawn mower, a workbench, and more. Keter has their own super-strong fade-resistant plastic resin that is guaranteed to never rot, rust, peel, or dent. This resin is made to take on the desert heat and the arctic cold without cracking.

The Manor is an excellent way to add a significant amount of storage space to your backyard and it's completely waterproof and impervious to all types of weather.



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

5. Suncast BMS4900D Glidetop Slide Lid Shed

Low Profile Storage for Your Backyard


Not everyone wants the entire neighborhood to see their shed, in fact, some HOAs don’t allow you to have any type of structure, besides your house and garage, that sticks up above the fence.

The Glidetop shed is the perfect solution as this low profile shed measures only 52 inches tall. At this height, the Glidetop will slide under many decks out of the way.

The sliding roof lets you open the doors and walk right in with your lawn mower, bikes, or tools. The floor has been fully reinforced to support the weight of your lawn tractor.



Sliding roof for ease of access

The plastic assembly screws are flimsy

Low profile keeps shed out of sight

Must be assembled on a flat location

Strong reinforced floor

The plastic padlock loops are not very secure

6. Lifetime 6418 Outdoor Storage Shed, 8 by 5 Feet

Pitched Roof has Trusses for Added Strength


When you are looking for an easy to build, convenient shed with plenty of room for the family bikes, the lawn mower, and your favorite garden tools, this 8 x 5 shed may be just what you need.

At 6 feet 8 inches tall there is plenty of headroom. The trusses give the high pitched roof is perfect for areas where it snows or rains a lot.

While you should place this shed on a concrete, wood, asphalt, or gravel surface for a longer life. The special high-density polyethylene material used for the floor will not crack, peel, or chip.

The high arched doors make moving your biggest items in and out easy and feature an internal locking mechanism.



High-density polyethylene floor is slip and stain resistant

Assembly process is more complicated than most plastic sheds

Steeply pitched roof lets rain and snow slide off easily

Needs to have a good solid level foundation

Steel-reinforced doors for added security

The plastic seems to be overly flimsy

7. Suncast BMS3200 Horizontal Storage Shed

Easy to Use Front Opening Storage with a Lifting Lid


At just over 4 feet tall, this shed is perfect for those who live in with a strict HOA that doesn't allow you to have a standard storage shed. The shed features double wall construction for added strength and security.

While it may be short in stature the dual front doors and lifting lid make it easy for you to get in and out of this shed. There are built-in shelf supports designed for a single wooden shelf that you have to supply.

Thanks to a set of easy to read instructions and parts that are well-labeled, most people can put this shed together in approximately 15 to 30 minutes.

This shed is the perfect size to fit on your deck or back porch.



Easy to assemble

Doors do not seem to close securely

Everything fits together very snugly

Latching mechanism is weak

Tight fit ensures shed is watertight

You have to lift the lid to open the front doors

8. Fusion Wood and Plastic Composite Shed

Wood-Composite is Designed Not to Rot


When you want a shed that plastic shed that is going to blend into your backyard, this one from Fusion, available in two colors, may be just what you are looking for.

The 7.5 ft. by 7 ft. size makes it one of the larger of the cheapest plastic sheds and offers plenty of room for a large number of tools and your entire family's bikes.

Yet despite its large size, it is still small enough to sit on a patio, deck or one of the corners of your backyard. It also features a full-length skylight for plenty of natural light.

The wood-composite material used by Keter is revolutionary new material is extremely strong and resistant to pests and rot.



Wood Composite Material is resistant to rot/pests

Some pieces are poorly made and require extra trim parts to cover any gaps

Relatively easy to assemble

Has over 300 screws to assemble

Natural wood look fits into any yard nicely

Doors have been known to fall off

9. Rubbermaid Plastic Large Outdoor Storage Shed

Quality Leak-Proof Storage for Your Garden Tools


This inexpensive double wall shed is ideal for storing a large number of items at a full 159 cubic feet of space. The floor is impact resistant and durable to help keep everything inside.

This is the perfect shed for storing lawn mowers, garden equipment, adult and child bicycles, and many other smaller but heavy items.

Unlike metal sheds, this one will not rust or rot and will remain watertight and impervious to rain and snow.

Rubbermaid also offers wall anchors that can be used with this shed that let you install storage options like pegboard, shelving, and racks for added capacity.

Plastic may warp when exposed to high temps

High strength impact resistant floor

Steel bar front support challenging to install

Double-wall construction for added strength

Plastic door hinges are weak

10. Duramax 30114 Vinyl Shed with Foundation

No Foundation Needed for this Big Shed


Start with a solid heavy duty floor, add in double doors, and a single window and you have a recipe for success in one of the best cheapest plastic sheds on the market.

The sidewalls stand a full 71 inches tall, perfect for the over 6-foot crowd and for giving you plenty of storage space. The shed is constructed using metal frames and vinyl panels for added strength and durability.

While most plastic sheds are made to remain the color they arrive in, this one is made to be painted to suit your tastes or needs.

The heavy duty construction and materials make this shed a great choice for those who live in the snow belt.



Steel reinforced vinyl panels add a lot of extra strength to the shed

Challenging to assemble, requires some experience and quite a few hand tools

Doors are double wall for added security and have a place to secure your shed with a padlock

Walls are single wall which makes them flimsy in appearance

Wind tested to 115 mpg snow load tested at 1000 or 20 lbs./sq. ft.

Poorly written assembly manual, it takes someone with a lot of experience to decipher them properly

Other Options

Not everyone has the space for a horizontal shed or simply wants something that doesn’t take up quite as much space in their backyard. If none of the horizontal sheds above seem to be exactly what you are looking for, here are a couple of optional style sheds that might do the job.

1. The YardStash IV: Heavy Duty Outdoor Shed Tent

Long Term Fully Portable Storage


What do you do when you have no room for a permanent structure like a plastic shed, but still need a place to stash your bikes, lawn mower, and other gear? Why not grab a storage tent like this one?

It is made from a heavy duty vinyl tarp and fiberglass poles that are completely impervious to the weather. This storage tent can be put up in ten minutes and used all year around.

It is tear-proof, weatherproof, and UV proof for a long life. Features a Velcro panel in the back that lets you secure your bikes or lawn mower to a fence pole for added security and heavy duty eyelets to secure it to the ground.



Lightweight and easily portable

Can be blown away by high winds

Takes 10 minutes to set up

Takes 2 people to set up quickly

Industrial grade tarp is completely weatherproof

Not very secure, you need to have a post to secure things to

2. Shed & Storage Series Shed-in-a-Box®

Easy Up Storage for your Backyard


When you don’t have the time or skill to build a wooden or plastic shed for your storage needs, this tent style shed might be just what you are looking for.

At 6 x 6 x 6 feet it offers plenty of storage space under a triple layer ripstop fabric cover. The frame is made from high-grade steel that has been powder coated to resist corrosion, chipping, and peeling.

 The seams are heat sealed instead of sewn to provide better water resistance. The Ratchet-Tite™ cover tensioning system is designed to keep the fabric covering tight and hold everything together.



Plenty of room inside

Material has a short life span in extreme heat

Frame is strong once assembled

Replacement covers are very expensive

Most of the front panel is a wide roll-up style door

Instruction manual hard to follow

Final Thoughts

While these are only a small sampling of the many different plastic sheds on the market, they do seem to represent the best cheap plastic sheds out there.

After spending many hours researching the various sheds, I found the Lifetime 6418 Outdoor Storage Shed to be the best of them.

In fact, I have one of these sitting in my backyard and it has so far made it through a couple of hot summers and heavy winter snows without a problem.

I also love the metal door handles as they let me lock my bike securely inside and the fact it didn’t cost me a fortune or several weeks to build.

I hope you have enjoyed reading the information I have put together here on the best cheap plastic sheds; they are a great way to put a shed in your backyard on a budget

It’s quite petite as far as sheds go, but that doesn’t mean it’s not tough. The panels have a baked on enamel paint finish which is quite tough and will withstand tough weather.

The beauty of a smaller shed is that there isn’t many parts to go wrong. The roof is flat so no joins for water to find its way in, and the single door slides in and out simply.

It also comes with its own floor (although the homeowner needs to provide a flat, level foundation), and has plenty of storage options including hooks, shelves and racks.

It does cop some bad reviews, but if you have a flat, level foundation then the assembly shouldn’t be too hard. The foundation is the responsibility of the homeowner, but Arrow do sell a foundation kit (for a shed this size we do recommend a concrete slab.)

And all that space for a lot less than you think. It’s hard to beat the price for this much square footage.

10 of the Best Storage Sheds for the Money

Genuine Handcrafted Quality

Finding value for money isn’t like it used to be…

Back in the old days, determining value was a lot easier. You were always dealing with someone you knew, or someone who had a reputation that you knew of. All you had to do was ask your neighbors, what is good and what isn’t.

Nowadays it can be a little harder, there are so many options, and items can come from anywhere around the world. How is one to know what is good quality at a good price and what isn’t?

We found this problem when looking online for a shed. So we decided to look for the best storage shed for our money. In our research we found 10. So we hope it narrows your search down a little.

Open Shed Comparison Table

Suncast Glidetop Slide Lid Shed

Lifetime 7x4.5 storage shed



No Maintenance Required

Limited Space

No H.O.A Restrictions*

Customer Service Not Always Great

Fits 3 Bikes

Cannot Paint It

Perfect for smaller yards

Although small, this slide lid shed is very spacious and can hold up to 3 bikes. It's great dedicated storage for outdoor furniture, pool equipment, etc.

Although this isn’t the cheapest shed, we like it because of the quality. The walls are relatively thick and reinforced with steel for extra strength.

Easy to put together (around an hour) and only requires a screwdriver. The shed is also lockable and will take the harsh elements of where you live

And according to many owners it looks just like it does in the picture, which we think is the true test of a good shed.

Our Verdict:

This is a quality plastic shed, great for getting your garage or porch space back.

*Check your H.O.A restrictions to double check if you can put in slide lid shed in your area

The Yardstash IV



Setup Is Easy

Not For Fully Exposed Areas

Portable and Easy To Move

Durability Questionable

If you like your solutions well thought out…

Even the color detracts from the Yardstash from standing out.

This thing is custom made for storing 2 adult bikes. There are even hooks for hanging your helmets and bike gear. But it will serve the purpose for your pool equipment or smaller garden tools. Although i’d measure my push mower (or anything else) before I bought this though.

The fabric is very heavy duty tarpaulin material, which is strong against the elements. The shed appears to be ‘weatherproof’ so reviewers have had water issues inside the shed. Although you can use a waterproof spray, this restricts the shed to only storing semi waterproof stuff like bikes, pool equipment, etc.

It’s a good option if you live in the city and need storage without giving up too much space. It is also a good product for some storage on your camping trip.

Our Verdict:

A convenient and portable solution, and a great way to get around strict HOA rules.

Shed-In-A-Box by Shelterlogic



Holds 3 Bikes

Assembly Can Be Tedious

Stands Up To Snow

Extras Are Required

Something more portable perhaps?

Shelterlogic have been making fabric sheds for a while, and their experience shows.

The frame is steel and is quite strong. It comes with steel footplates, stabilizer blocks and auger anchors (although the longer anchors are recommended as an added extra)

However, it is a fabric shed and not metal, wood or plastic. Being a fabric shed it can be a little noisy in the wind, and there is no security apart from a thin film of fabric that works like a privacy shield.

On the upside the fabric does allow the Shed-in-a-box to be portable and cheap.

Our Verdict:

A great seasonal solution to store firewood and ride on equipment.

Everything Is An Added Extra, And You Do Need Some Of The Added Extras

How do they do it for the price?

Do you need to shelter your equipment from the weather, and want the job done on budget? Then this shed is a winner.

It is definitely a winner in its class. It’s a reasonable size while being very economically friendly. There isn’t much to the shed, but the important stuff is here. Galvanized metal wall panels and roof for protection against corrosion, and the door opening is quite large for a smaller shed.

As far as looks go, it may look like an outhouse, but were told the imitation wood paneling looks better in person. The light frame also allows the shed to be moved if needed.

Our Verdict:

An inexpensive solution for a small yard.

Looking for a great quality wood shed?

Many of the cheaper wood sheds don’t come with windows or the same ornate details that this one comes with.

The two tone color is striking and gives the shed the settled in, classic look. It does catch the eye in a good way. It’s also Available prebuilt, but that’s not as much fun.

This shed opens up to being a workspace, although a small one, with the natural light that passes through the front window. The front wall is 6ft which is high enough to work in depending on how tall you are.

The manufacturer (Little Cottage Co.) also make this in a 8 x 10 and other larger sizes.

Our Verdict:

It’s not often were surprised about quality, but this one is a great quality shed for the price.

DIY is a great way to save money, especially on an expensive item like a shed.

If you are going to DIY your shed, then buying plans is a great place to start. They are quite inexpensive and can be purchased online. We found one package that contains 1,000's of shed plans for under $70.

These plans are great value, and don’t just include the drawings, but also advice, photos and illustrations to help you build your shed. It’s the best thing, next to having a builder help you build it.

The benefits of building your own shed are that you get exactly what you want, at the quality level you expect. And a quality shed will improve the value of your home.

Our Verdict:

If you want something large, or a unique size then building your own can be the best value.

A great value metal shed

There’s no surprise that in a list of great value sheds, there are a few metal ones. They are durable, and very cost effective.

The Arrow Hamlet 10×8 is no exception. It’s great value, and provides a large footprint, enough for your ride on, families bikes, snow mobile and other equipment.

It does look quite neat in your backyard and doesn’t stick out like some older models of metal shed. The steel is galvanized to provide protection against rust and corrosion, which will help extend its life.

It’s easy enough to put up. You might want to look at some more information about the assembly here at our review page. Only because the printed instructions included with the shed aren’t much help.

Our Verdict:

Although the floor, earth anchor kit, and roof strengthening kit are extras you might have to buy, this is a great inexpensive solution.

Are you a green thumb or garden enthusiast?

This large, solid shed is a castle for the tools and equipment for your favorite pastime

It is a strong shed, the roof is low profile, but reinforced to stand up to tough conditions. It is designed to stand on a concrete slab, so it won’t move when bolted down. And a concrete floor is a perfect base if you need to get underneath it to do a quick job.

There are a few windows although this shed isn't really big enough to work in, the windows do help eliminate excess moisture and condensation which can lead to rust.

There's plenty of room for garden tools and equipment, although it does come with some shelving, you will need to purchase/make more to fit it out properly

While not being huge, there is enough space for your tools and tool boxes, and the double doors open with enough space to get your stuff in and out with plenty of space

Our Verdict:

A large small shed, to treat your new toy or equipment like royalty.
