Not All Sheds Are Created Equal! Some Things to Look for When Comparing Sheds:

  • Height - Many sheds have low ceilings and entrances and are very cramped.
  • Structure - Is the Shed High Quality Steel Reinforced and Double Walled?
  • Features - Does it Have Vents, Windows, Lights, True Door Handle, Steel Support Shelving, etc?
  • Floor - Lifetime Floors are More Sturdy and Made of Better Material.

Bottom Line: Lifetime sheds are much nicer looking, more functional, and much stronger than cheaper competitor sheds.

The Garden Sheds are putty colored with darker brown trims.

Lifetime sheds fill many different needs for outdoor storage needs. The 6406 is a smaller floor plan ideal for storing pushing/self-propelled lawn mowers, gardening supplies, and yard tools.

*Assembly Required on Lifetime Outdoor Storage Products. A wooden framework or cement slab is recommended for support under the shed. The shed floor is not a weight-bearing floor and will need some sort of solid support to keep from breaking or damaging the floor.

* Lifetime Plastic Shed extensions sold separately.

Competitive Edge Storage Sheds are manufactured by Lifetime Products.

5 out of 5 stars This product is the best
by Erlinda from Fontana on 1/24/2012
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
When the product was delivered, I did not open right away waiting for another person to help. My daughter about 410" in height came without her tall masculine husband, my height is 53". My husband was sick couldn't help that day. My daughter had no time to come back so both of us started unpacking, reading the manual, collecting the screws, putting the parts together, screw it. It took us 4 hours to do it. Amazingly we finished it.

5 out of 5 stars 8 X 5 Shed
by Mike A from Addison, TX on 1/2/2011
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Beautiful product once assembled; not quite as easy to put together as suggested in the "we built it in an afternoon" video, but not too difficult, either. A great addition to my property. One caution, carefully think through the location of the shed on your property. You need access to the rear of the shed to seal the rear gable, and you need to be able to reach the peak of the shed from the outside during roof assembly.

5 out of 5 stars Top notch product
by DLeger from Lafayette, LA on 10/27/2009
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
My shed has been up for several months. Setting it up went like clockwork. Just followed the detailed instructions. It provides me with much needed extra storage with peace of mind. We have received much rain and extremely hot weather this summer. The shed has withstood all of that. No water leaks, even in the heaviest of rain storms. No buckling from daily temperatures of up to 102 degrees. No sagging doors. It is absolutely one of the best investments I have ever made. (Updated on 10/27/2009.)

4 out of 5 stars VERY HAPPY
by Princess from Pasadena, MD on 4/6/2010
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
I just put up the Shed this past weekend and everything went great. It was two of us and it took 6 hours. It was a lot bigger inside then I expected. The only problem that I had was aligning the doors and the tool hooks does not hold heavy tools. Otherwise I am very happy with it.
