The 5 x 8 Lotus by Globel Metal Lean-to shed in Heritage Green is a stylish and practical way to add useful extra storage space to your garden. Not only that, but you will struggle to find such a high quality metal shed at a better price than this. Constructed entirely from 0.3mm high tensile, hot-dipped galvanised steel, this lean-to shed boasts a robust, sturdy construction that is certain to stand up to the elements. This material is also low maintenance, meaning that the occasional wipe down of your shed is all it will need to maintain its attractive appearance. On top of this, its exterior is highly scratch and rust resistant, so you can be sure it will maintain its good looks through its lifetime. The galvanised steel is also finished with five coats of paint, making it suitable for challenging environments. For example, your lean-to shed will stand up to the high salt content of the atmosphere in coastal areas, whereas metal buildings of a lesser quality may experience rusting.

The clever, compact design of the Lotus Lean-to shed is its defining feature, meaning you are provided with a large amount of storage space without giving up too much of your garden. The design of the Lean-to also makes it a popular choice for appearance reasons, with its charming exterior and roof making it a best seller. The robust hinged door can be padlocked (padlock not included) for extra peace of mind when leaving valuable items inside the shed. This door can be located on either of the 4ft widths and can be hinged to the left or right, whatever best suits your available outdoor space. With a generous roof and wall height as standard, you can store a variety of larger items in what is a surprisingly large garden building on the inside, despite its compact design. Ventilated gables ensure that airflow inside is maintained, important for minimising condensation and the harmful effects this can have on items stored in the shed. Its slim-line roof bracing is unobtrusive but still provides plenty of robust support. The heritage green exterior ensures that the shed blends seamlessly with its surroundings and will look great in any type of garden. We are certain that the Lotus Lean-to Shed offers superb value for money without compromising on quality when compared to similar products.

About Your Lotus Apex Metal Shed Order

The Lotus Metal Lean-to Shed is a superb shed that gives you plenty of valuable extra storage space. Whether you have a collection of DIY and garden tools that need sheltered storage or have simply outgrown the available storage space in your house or garage, this shed could be the solution. Lotus sheds are also ideal for caravan or holiday parks where fire regulations mean that non-combustible storage sheds are compulsory. With larger shed sizes and other colours available in the Lotus Lean-to range, there is a solution to almost any requirement.

We offer the option of having your shed constructed by our dedicated professionals, who will assemble it quickly and correctly, saving you time and effort. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive and user friendly instructions included with your shed and construct it yourself.

Feel free to email us to discuss our full range of sheds, storage solutions and other products, or better still, give us a call so we can find the perfect solution for your requirements. Alternatively, why not visit us at our Brookfields Garden Centre showsite near Nottingham? Here, you can sit down with one of our helpful advisors who can guide you through your order or offer advice on the rest of our range of products. We also recommend that you take a look at our delivery information if you think that the Lotus Lean-to Shed could be the perfect product for you.

Base Information

This garden building is not supplied with a floor. It is essential that the building is anchored to a suitable concrete or slab base. You can purchase a complete Hilti Screw Anchor Kit, with the correct number of fasteners plus a free masonry drill bit, which will be delivered with your metal shed so you can anchor it to your chosen base.

As a robust and attractive alternative, you can also purchase a timber floor kit or a steel foundation kit for your shed. Both of these options will provide you with a solid shed base that will last while also ensuring your new garden building is anchored.

Customer Questions

From Mr R-


looking at the Lotus 5' x 8' heritage green lean-to shed....Is the roof on this shed reversible please? Can it be built to lean right (high) to left low, as in the picture of the Canberra shed adjacent to it on your web page?


Elbec Response-


The side walls on the lotus lean to shed are of an equal height, therefore when erecting the shed, the roof can be placed with the slope on your preferred side.
