            The Forest 4Life Overlap Pressure Treated 7x5 Apex Shed with Lean-To is an all-in-one storage solution for your garden. The included lean-to is perfect for storing bulky items like wheelbarrows that need to be kept undercover but don't require indoor storage. The lean-to is also suitable as a log store, and you can place it on either side of the Apex Shed to suit your garden layout.

            This shed boasts an improved design with modular panels, which means it is delivered in smaller sections but with more wood, making assembly easier and providing a more versatile configuration and stronger shed. The Forest 4Life range of sheds is the top UK shed.

            This 7x5 shed with lean-to offers durability and functionality. Built with 30% thicker framing than most timber sheds, it uses straight-cut 7mm boards that overlap. The design provides flexibility, allowing for the timber's natural movement and promoting rainwater run-off. The pressure treatment applied to this shed enhances its aesthetic appeal and gives it a 25-year anti-rot guarantee. You have maintenance-free peace of mind and no need to worry about preservative treatment.

            Instead of the typical OSB (oriented strand board), this garden shed with lean-to has an extra-thick 14mm solid timber floor, ready to handle even the heaviest of garden items. The roof is made from a hardwearing 8mm solid sheet and finished with a green sand-felt cover, ensuring complete weatherproof protection. 

            This 7x5 shed has a single door reinforced with a double-Z frame to add strength and prevent sagging. It is equipped with hidden hinges and a padlock-ready hasp and staple latch for maximum security (padlock not included). You can construct the door to open on either the left or right side.  You should build the Lean-To at the same time as the shed.

            For added safety, the shed features shatter-proof PET glazing that is more durable than traditional glass and will not yellow or fade over time. The shed's modular design allows you to choose the positioning of the door and window panels so you can adapt the finish to suit your needs.

            Boasting a traditional apex roof, smooth-planed barge boards, and a diamond-shaped finial, this wooden shed with lean-to will look superb in any garden. Enjoy free delivery to most UK addresses with Forest Garden's White Glove Delivery Service, where the shed will be placed in the location of your choice, and all packaging will be removed.

            Upon Delivery

            Your order will be delivered kerbside or on your driveway.

            We advise against arranging for a third party to install the product before its delivered and checking that all parts are present,  we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs caused by delays.


            If you have selected the service for installation, we can confirm that delivery and installation will occur on different days, and the length of time required for delivery and installation will depend on the specific item you have chosen. You will not be able to pre-book a delivery or installation date when placing your order, as this will be arranged directly with the manufacturer. Within 5 working days of placing your order, the manufacturer will contact you via email to explain how to prepare the base for installation. The base must be either a solid, level timber supportive base, concrete, concrete slabs, or a pro shed base (plastic base). You should ensure that there is a clearance of 18 inches (450mm) of working space around the base so that the installers can access all areas of the structure. Shortly after receiving the email from the manufacturer, you will receive a phone call to schedule a convenient delivery and installation date. Installation may occur within 15 working days of delivery.   Note: This service is not available on all Forest products, please check if this is available for your chosen product under the 'Choose Additional Options' above.


            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Forest Garden Wooden Sheds are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
