Key Features

High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Structure

The longevity of this shed comes from the HDPE that it’s made up of. This plastic is strong and resistant to mould, mildew, and rotting - allowing it to stand the test of time.

Classic Style

A picture-perfect design, the cream and grey exterior ensure that the shed will easily fit into any garden.

Screened Vents

The inclusion of screened vents means there is a continuous airflow through your shed, even at times when it’s untouched, to prevent mildew.


Improved internal light within the shed by providing natural lighting from above.

Double Doors

Provide a practical entrance to the shed. So, you can store lawnmowers inside and remove them with ease. Plus, the double doors open with a button catch mechanism for added security.

Apex Roof

The shape of the roof to this shed allows for additional head height when you stand within, making collecting your garden tools and equipment more comfortable.

When compared to wooden structures, plastic sheds clearly aren’t a traditional design amongst the typical British garden aesthetic. However, they are becoming increasingly popular amongst homeowners and boast numerous benefits:

Maintenance-free - One of the biggest positives surrounding plastic sheds is that they require virtually no maintenance. They’re easy to clean, not prone to rust or rot, and don’t need to be kept painted in order to withstand extreme weather conditions.

Highly portable - Thanks to being lightweight and easy to disassemble, plastic sheds can be effortlessly moved if you decide to alter your garden layout.

Functionality - Plastic sheds are very functional garden buildings, courtesy of offering several potential uses. They can store plant food and fertiliser during the growing season, organise garden tools and much more.

If the building is shorter than 2.5m tall at the eaves you should not require planning permission (unless it’s more than 50% of your garden or to be put in your front garden). Planning permission rules can vary by area, so we strongly recommend checking your local council rules before ordering from us.

High-density polyethylene is known for its strength and durability, making it perfect for outdoor buildings. It is also a UV-inhibiting material, ensuring the shed won’t crack, peel, or chip. And, it is 100% recyclable and considered one of the most environmentally friendly plastics around.

We suggested that all garden buildings be constructed on suitable bases and flat, level ground. While a base isn’t needed to prevent rotting or rust over time in a plastic shed, good foundations can prevent your shed from sinking into the ground. Moreover, if your lawn isn’t level, building a shed of any material on top of it can lead to major issues concerning structural integrity in the future - something which a base can comfortably tackle. This building includes a foundation kit to provide a solid base for your shed and increase its structural stability.

Yes, but we’ve made it super simple for you. The shed comes with comprehensive and easy to follow instructions that make building it a breeze (and satisfying when you’re done!)

More about the Lifetime 8ft x 5ft Heavy Duty Plastic Shed...

This plastic garden shed is an ideal storage solution that looks as good as it is practical! It's built using high-quality materials to bring you a robust, airy, and spacious garden building at an affordable price - and these is just some of the advantages of plastic sheds! 

Plastic Garden Sheds

With a plastic shed of this quality, you won't need to perform regular upkeep, fixes, or consider buying a new shed after a couple of years. It's built to last! This is why our premium plastic sheds are the perfect storage option for low maintenance gardens. 

Quality High-Density Polyethylene Walls

This durable plastic garden shed is built using a combination of high-density polyethylene and powder-coated steel frames. These materials are what makes the structure so strong and durable.

High-density polyethylene as our preferred plastic because it's 100% recyclable, doesn't release harmful emissions during production, nor does it release toxic chemicals into soil. This makes the Lifetime 8x5' ideal for any outdoor space.

Suitable For All Weather

HDPE is also a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-grade plastic that includes premier UV-inhibitors. This protects the shed against harmful UV rays, ensuring that it won't crack, chip, or peel - making it an ideal building material. It's also weather-resistant and built for staying outdoors in even extreme weather conditions - even able to withstand the worst of the British weather!

Quality Steel Reinforcements for Security

Plus, the shed uses rust-resistant, powder-coated steel reinforcement to protect the building against regular wear and tear, providing the ideal solution against harsh weather conditions.

Double Doors

This Lifetime shed has two wide opening doors for ease of access, so getting to your garden equipment is a breeze. These are lockable doors, as you can add a padlock for extra security when storing gardening tools. And, they use a catch opening mechanism, to make accessing your storage space as simple as possible.

Natural Light and Built-In Air Vents

The skylights included in this shed make spending time inside all the more appealing. A constant stream of natural light helps to make the room feel airy and bright.

The Lifetime 8x5 also has additional air ducts which provide easy ventilation and supply your plastic apex shed with fresh air, massively reducing the risk of damp.

Apex Roof

The apex roof provides increased height in the centre where the slopes meet. This means you won't have to duck when collecting your garden tools, making entering the shed more comfortable. And, it's not just for comfort!

Having an apex roof allows for efficient water drainage. This helps to prevent water damage that can be devastating for the contents of a shed.

Minimal Maintenance and No Treatment

Unlike wooden sheds, this heavy-duty plastic shed has no need for pressure treatment or touch-ups. This means you'll have an amazing plastic storage shed that does the job just as well as a wood or metal shed but without any of the typical costs or cons of plastic sheds. Simply wipe clean and remove any debris as and when! 

Planning Permission

Garden building planning permission should not be required for this Lifetime shed. The height and specifications for all of our outdoor storage sheds are built with this in mind. So long as your shed doesn't take up more than 50% of your garden and isn't built past the front wall of your house, you should be fine. Just remember to erect on a sturdy and level base - and check local council rules if you're still unsure.
