Please don't ask me for plans or a list of materials as I kind of made it up as I went along.
If you don't want to go to the trouble of making your own, quality garden sheds and log cabins can be bought online from Tiger Sheds. It will have a near flat felt roof, there is ivy growing on the back wall which will grow onto the shed roof. Would be nice to soften the structure with something, I'll read up on your suggestion.
Ah yes, I'd looked at exactly that as a wall covering, it is nice looking stuff and softens nicely. I don't particularly want long extensive borders and the clean look will better suit my planned garden. But just get the strimmer and flake into that ivy as it will be of little benefit to you up there. It’s that time of year again when the heavens open up and right on cue, you find a leak in your felt shed roof.
For a shed roof that’ll go the distance, the trick is to cut three pieces of felt: one for each side of your shed roof and one to run over the top of the shed and overlap the side panels.
When the side panels are secure, add the top section of roofing felt and fix it in place by nailing the side edges 5cm apart to the shed and using a felt adhesive to secure the bottom edge to the side panels.

Could you leave the bottom corner with no roof next the ivy, so that you could get a set of steps in to keep it in check? Water damage can be disastrous for your garden tools and if a leaky roof isn’t repaired, it could lead to costly replacements. To do this, use your claw hammer to remove the existing nails that are fixing the shed felt in place.
Apply it to the roof, making sure you pull it tight before you nail it in place so it lies flat. If you’re replacing the roofing felt on your shed, you can find a fantastic range of shed roofing supplies at great discounts online at eDecks. My main problem was that I tried to do it in England in February and it rained for most of the time!
The roof is OSB which I suggest you have cut to size to make it easier and get straight edges.
Then simply lift the felt off and remove any remaining nails or debris that’s lingering on the shed roofing so you have a clean canvas to work with. Add approximately 5cm onto your measurements for leeway in case there are any overlapping sections at the eaves, you can trim this off later using a craft knife if it isn’t needed.
Hammer in the felt nails 15cm apart along the length of the roof, placing the nails just below the apex. Repairing your roofing felt is easier than you think, the hardest part is finding a dry afternoon to do it! The bottom edge of the felt can be nailed down at wider intervals; spacing you nails approximately 30cm apart will make sure your felt is secure. This may seem a bit expensive, but when you compare it to the shed kits which you can buy, the wood is about 3 times as thick! Also, it was build to my exact specification - with security in mind; no windows, concealed hinges and a mortice lock.
