When Carolyn Tandy moved to her home in Cleburne, Texas, her backyard was a blank slate. She needed a garden shed for the gardening equipment she would use to create the beautiful, fruitful space she dreamed of.
When Ulrich Barns was recommended to Carolyn by a landscaping service she visited the retail store at Cleburne. She liked the buildings she saw and the warm Ulrich welcome. “Everybody was very easy to talk to, pleasant, accommodating, timely, and organized.” Carolyn says.
Carolyn wanted a certain size and look for her garden shed. Design consultants at Ulrich helped her look at various models. When they found the 8×12 Garden Cottage shed, “it was the perfect size. It had the look that I liked,” Carolyn says, with its cream and brown exterior, carriage doors, shutters, and window box.
After the shed was delivered, Carolyn installed a work bench and peg board to organize her tools and supplies. She had wood skirting added, as well as a curving flagstone path leading to the double doors. With vines in the window box and a sign over the door, she calls it her she shed.
Two years later her backyard has fourteen fruit trees and five garden boxes. She added shrubs, flower beds, and a magnolia tree. Carolyn loves harvesting the wholesome fruits and vegetables grown in her own backyard. With her Ulrich garden shed nestled in its corner, her barren backyard has gone from a blank slate to a gardener’s dream come true.
