Bunny ...
I have a space between greenhouse and OHs large shed which at the moment has a water butt at garden end but back end just old pots and who knows what , my plan is to clear away nettles from fence area (neighbours chickens behind here) , get some membrane or something down on soily sections and gravel up to flags (which go around the shed) , seems a wasted space, do i just use as storage or build in some cold frames , won't get sun though due to shade of shed and 6ft fence . Do cold frames need sun?

What about a stumpery with ferns and other interesting things, Some grow really tall and would hide water butt. You could gravel up to the permanent stumps etc

Or more water butts

How much space are we talking about?

Cold frames need a well lit spot most of the time- like a greenhouse -it is half way spot between that and the garden

Right its old pic, see what you mean about shade. its about metre wide and nothing there really . thought of moving butt forward to front of shed and had a "matching one" other side and put something or other to disguise giving me ease to walk into said gap. can get right round but i block due to nosey dog and her ass /tail whacking glass!

Think I would leave it as it is-you need a spot to store stuff-perhaps also use it as spot for storing black bags of leaves for leaf mould?

Very clean glass btw -can see right through it as if it wasn't there

Put in another water butt to use as a useful block

How about a properly oganised outdoor storage area; treated timber shelves to store flowerpots, as mentioned sacks of leaf mould, compost, yard broom, kindling, buckets etc.
